TourBox NEO Review

When TourBox reached out to see if we would be interested in taking a look at one of their left-handed consoles for content creation efficiency, I have to admit, I was a little intimidated. As far as content creation goes, I have dabbled with basic photo and video editing for a few years, but have never considered myself to be anything more than a novice. That being said, I do want to improve my skillset in these areas, and if any sort of tool was going to help me out, the TourBox NEO might just be the one. While it won’t make me more creative, it does offer the opportunity to improve my workflow with its plethora of input options that span the range of buttons to dials, and more. Follow along as I introduce the TourBox NEO into my content creation workflow.

Special thanks to TourBox for providing the NEO review sample!


TourBox NEO


There are two versions of the TourBox available, the NEO and the Elite. And while both offer a very similar feature set, there are a few differences that separate the two, and I want to highlight some of the major features found on the NEO, as this is a product type that we don’t typically take a look at here at ThinkComputers.

Multi-Dimensional Input Actions – Many content creation tools and devices have a “flat” layout that might include a few buttons or knobs for control surfaces. The NEO offers the option to click, scroll, spin, twist, single-click, double-click, and create button combinations to meet your editing needs.

Tactile Touch – The unique button shapes found on the NEO help you differentiate between them, without having to look down at what you are doing. Many other devices have similar shaped buttons that can cause you to become lost in a sea of identical feeling buttons. The shape, size and placement of the controls on the NEO are designed with ease of use and identification in mind.

Accessible Layout – The NEO’s shape and control layout lends itself to using multiple buttons at once to enable easy combinations for expanded access to software features. The sizing of the NEO can also reduce the need to reposition or use uncomfortable positions with your hand.


The TourBox NEO is presented in a stylish black box with the TourBox name in glossy print on the front. A small silver box indicates that this is the NEO model. Aside from that, there really isn’t much to say about the packaging, other than it felt similar to the unboxing experience of a flagship cell phone.

The inner compartment was comprised of a molded plastic tray to keep components in place, but other than that, very basic in design.

Included with the TourBox NEO was a Quick Start Guide, safety instructions related to use of an input device, as well as a help center information card with QR codes that take you to various language support resources.

There is also a braided USB Type-C cable for connecting the NEO to your device of choice, as well as a Type-C to Type-A adapter. The NEO-side of the cable offers a 90-degree connection to assist with routing the cable to the left or right on the back side of the device.
