Packaging is a massive, full color box although with product shots, and detailed specifications/marketing information on each side.

The case arrived, covered in plastic film on virtually every side to protect the brilliant white finish from scratches.  By case standards, it actually arrived more protected than expected!  It’s worth noting that there was some slight damage to the box; so I was glad such care was taken in the packaging.

Included with the chasis there is a large, multi-lingual installation poster.  There are fairly detailed diagrams outlining all of the key features, as well as how to utilize them.
