PRODUCT COMPOSITION


The Fusion arrived at my door in a plain brown shipping box. After opening the box, you're presented with the same attractive, informative packaging Antec is known for. Antec took cues from Microsoft on the coloring, and I'll touch on that later.



Opening the box, the first thing you see is the instruction booklet, which also contains a driver CD.



Once removed from the box, the Fusion is packaged neatly and safely between two foam blocks.


Removing the packaging, you're treated to your first look at the case. All necessary hardware is enclosed inside the case.



Underneath the drive rack, you'll find a small bag of parts. Aside from the usual screws, there's a large plate, a few smaller, interlocking plastic blocks, and a power cable.
