The Inferno comes packaged in your typical mouse packaging. The retail box cover shows the mouse surrounded by what I would think is Cooler Masters rendition of an “inferno”. The front cover of the case flips open to reveal the mouse itself along with some of the features it has.

The back cover of the case shows the list of specifications for the mouse. The actual mouse that we got to review came in a plain white box because it was prior to the retail packaging production.
