As with all SteelSeries products the packaging is spot on.

The [RAW] itself definitely subscribes to the 'none more black' school of design. Even the logo on the palm part of the mouse is much less obvious than it appears in our photographs, except when lit of course. The cable is definitely going to last a long time, with an excellent quality braid that somewhat trades softness for ruggedness. It might take a while to straighten it out when you first remove the tie.
