Creative Sound BlasterX Vanguard K08 Review

Packaging & First Look

On the front of the box we are greeted with large image of the keyboard itself with a small amount of information given including the brand, product name and that it features custom mechanical switches and 'Aurora' RGB lighting.

The reverse side provides us with a large diagram with a list of features, including the low-profile keycaps, 26 key rollover, as well as some detailed information about the custom mechanical switches.

Included with the Vanguard K08 keyboard is the various paperwork/quickstart guide (apparently it should include a keycap remover too) as well as a plastic wrist rest. The wrist rest is a nice inclusion but we would have preferred it to at least been magnetic rather than plastic clips which can easily break.

The keyboard itself features a 2m long braided cable with two USB connectors, one for the keyboard and the other for the USB passthrough. The frame that surrounds the keys is very thin giving it a low-footprint appearance, while the white background suggests that it has been designed intentionally to provide a vivid lighting experience.
