The retail box is attractive and informative, but it's what's inside that counts.
The controller comes in a sealed plastic bag with some moisture absorbing material to keep any corrosion at bay during shipping. Also included are the user's guide, fan cables and mounting screws. The manual is pretty good and the whole package should be easy to install and configure. We'll see.
