PRODUCT COMPOSITION & PICTORIAL
The case comes shipped in a fairly plain box. There were no dings incurred in transit, which always makes me happy. The company logo is very unobtrusive. In fact, I didn't even see the actual company name until earlier this morning.
Inside the box, the case is very well packed. It certainly isn't going to get jarred if dropped. Also, there is some space between the case and the cardboard. In case something does puncture the box, your case may still remain unscathed.
There she is. In addition to the foam on either side, the case is also protected from a plastic film which surrounds it.
My first impression is very good, although I'm not so certain the case would stand out in a crowd of others. Granted, that's not what the case is trying to do. There are very few bells and whistles here… just a good, practical case. As an entertainment or server box, this case would rule.
Upon opening the case, you'll find the rest of the accessories. There is a power cable, a bag of screws and standoffs, instructions, and the stand. The steel construction, due to the case's size, is not an issue. So the case is quite sturdy, yet still fairly light.
