The product comes packed in a black box with a big picture of the unit itself and also a bigger picture of the display. On the back of the box you can read about the various features and specifications.
Inside the box you will find a bag in which you can store the unit, manuals, and a USB cable to hook it up to the computer with. The enclosure has a glossy black color which matches very well with the blue display on the front.
