An impressive feature set all around, so let's take a look at what the X3 offers
I typically don't pay a lot of attention to packaging, but Ultra obviously put a lot of effort into designing a sturdy, attractive box. The outer, red portion is a sleeve, which, when removed……….
Shows the plain, jet-black box, covered in shrink wrap.
Once inside the box, you find another, similar box containing the power cables, the PSU itself, and an instruction manual.
Inside the cable box, you'll find all of the cables needed to connect the X3 to whatever gear you have stuffed into your machine, along with a small bag of mounting screws.
Now that we know what's included, let's take a walk around the X3.
