Packaging & Closer Look
As always, we will take a look at the packaging in which the Parthica comes in. From there, we will un-package the keyboard and look at some of its primary features.
To start with, the outside of the box follows a similar sort of deign to the keyboard with large highlights of red on black. With a nice large list of the key selling points of this product, SpeedLink has ensured they provide an easy reference to what is on offer.
The back provides some additional details of the keyboard. For example, the large range of customising options and diagrams of the software provided.
Now onto the products included in the box. SpeedLink keeps things simple so don’t expect anything other than the product, software/drivers disc and manual.
A red and black braided cable keeps your wires safe from bends, dirt and other material and from getting damaged. It also looks very cool and matches the whole design of the keyboard.
On the end of the fancy braided cable is a gold plated USB connector that is compatible with any USB based device.
On the reverse, like with most keyboards, we have stands to allow for a more raised and angled set up. Although a standard feature for most keyboards out there, you wouldn’t believe how many still lack this feature which is a must for some users including myself.
Rubber grippers stand on the reverse of the keyboard to allow it to stand without sliding anywhere, mainly for use on glossy surfaces.
A wrist support sits at the lower region of the keyboard and is of a solid and fixed variant, meaning that it cannot be removed for those of you who prefer to use your own.
Subtle markings on the keys allow for quick reference to the main gaming keys on offer but also in which direction they will move your character in game.
An additional set of programmable keys sits to the left of the board in a grey colour. Not only suitable for quick tap buttons for games, the difference in colour allows for quick referencing to the keys and what they are for.
Along the top left and right of the keyboard are a variation of pre-programmed quick keys to allow you to access different pieces of software or utilities. The top left is based around browsing and access, for things like the web and favourites to your emails and computer files browser. The top right is more audio based and allows for track changes, volume adjustment and pause/play features.
