Let me share my feeling on first touch!!
<開箱 Box Open>
Protection is good. There is a board card on top and bottom, and also a plastic bag.
<身分象徵 Ower ID>
There is a Owner Card in the box of manual. My ID is 3257, I'm the 3257th owner in the world!
There are 2 more hands set. This will not affect 3d model in software because there is no sensor on it.
<本體和支架 Qumarion and arm>
There is 16 sets of joint and 32 set of sensor, and also acceleration senor. In Clip Studio Paint, turn on the acceleration of 3D model, the swing of Qumarion will be detected.

<軟件對應 Software Connection>
Set Qumarion a pose, tap on software, completed!
Qumarion is very light, below 300g, but very durable.
High movement level on all joints, it's very easy to set pose.
Installation is very simple. Connect to PC and all will be done automatically.
This is not a learning tools, but a supporting tool for reference, and it is expensive. Newbies should not rely on it, but take practice on anatomy. Only practice anatomy seriously everyday, you may almost draw all poses without different angles after 2 weeks to 1 month.
I bought for game making, there will be great help on animations! And also, Qumarion is expensive, please don't buy for fun without productivity.
