The iQue Player box is sealed with one of three stickers, depending on when it was seemingly manufactured. It is located on the bottom of the box.
- Red: The earliest produced units have a red sticker, which means it's only compatible with iQue Depots and has no USB support. The sticker reads 神游机 首发装, meaning "iQue Player Launch Day Package."
- Blue: Little information is currently available concerning it.
- Purple: These units seem to be the most common of the three. It has an iQue@Home logo on it, which means its firmware can be connected to a PC via USB (more specifically, 32-bit Windows OSes). This makes it useful to check whether the unit is compatible out of the box.
