Opening the velcro seal reveals even less information about the mouse, but includes a plastic see-through window which allowing for a glimpse of the mouse itself:
The Bloody V8 and its contents come in a nice plastic shell with a red cardboard background:
These items include Bloody stickers, a mouse surface that doubles as a microfiber cloth pad for cleaning, and a mini-DVD housing the Bloody Ultra Core 3 suite, firmware, and drivers. These are very generous and rarely-seen additions, so A4Tech definitely gets bonus points here; just note that the previous V7 version of the mouse gets a tad more than this.
AESTHETICS AND EXTERIOR
Finally getting to the mouse, the Bloody V8 has a soft matte-black coating outlining essentially the entire top-side of the mouse. This type of covering is quite new in terms of design philosophy, so Bloody is certainly keeping up with modern styles.
Looking closer, the mouse has six buttons on the front: left and right-click, three programmable macro buttons labelled ‘1’, ‘n’ and ‘3’ for changing mouse settings and LED colours using the Ultra Core 3 software, and of course the pushable scroll-wheel/middle-mouse button. Note that the unmarked slot, while it looks like one, is not a button:
The backend has a bit of a different design than most gaming mice. The Bloody V8 has a pointed posterior than the usual rounded bottom for resting your palm. Furthermore it has the Bloody logo and a ‘V’-shaped strip, both of which are LED-lit.
