The Virgo 811W came well packaged. It came in a larger box but to my surprise, it wasn't all that heavy. The box isn't really anything out of the ordinary. It just lets you know what you’re getting. It shows most of the product's specifications, a picture of the case, and the color you are receiving.
The case came wrapped in a plastic bag and was sandwiched rather well between two pieces of Styrofoam. I would find it very hard to believe this case could be damaged at anytime during shipping.
Opening up the box, we find a beautiful glossy black case. Inside the case are a power cord, power supply, two case fans, a few PCI brackets, and one set of screws and standoffs. An added bonus was a layer of plastic film over the case window to protect it. I was extremely surprised to notice there was NO documentation included with this case. However, if you have a motherboard manual, you should be able to easily set things up.
Mmmm. A nice high gloss coupled with a beautiful pin-stripped window. This is one good looking case but how does it really perform?
