My local UPS guy dropped the plain brown shipping box off on my doorstep, which I opened eagerly to reveal………another plain brown box. No marketing or shelf presence here, but since iStar mainly markets its power products to companies for their servers, I'm not surprised.
Opening the box reveals the PSU, sandwiched between two foam blocks. The power cable is set on top of the cable bundle, unwrapped.
Underneath the cable bundle are two small bags of screws. iStar included two sets of mounting screws, in case you own one of their cases, which use mounting brackets for the PSU.
