First of all, Iíd like to point out that the package came from MGE boxed in plain cardboard, just like the XG Dragon case we reviewed. This keeps the contents anonymous to the casual observer. If UPS leaves this thing sitting on your doorstep, itís more likely to be ignored as a plain paper box, than as a shiny packaged box.
Once you open that box, however, you are greeted with the professionally finished box. As with the Dragon case, it seems obvious that the packaging has been designed for a retail shelf, with its sleek appearance and specs listed on the sides. A quick visit to CompUSA shows this product in stock, so itís confirmed. Hereís a couple pics:
Iím not sure what the deal with the red tape, is. Maybe they were out of clear in the warehouse? Before we move on and open the box, there are a couple of things Iíd like to point out here.
As you can see from the picture, this one side of the box seems to list 3 different power supplies. First, a small box on the right says its 500W SLI Ready. Next, in the Features section, it says it has a MGE 450 Watt w/SLI and SATA. Finally, near the bottom in the Specs section, it claims an MGE 400 Watt Power Supply, SLI Ready + dual fans. To make matters worse, on the opposite side of the box, is another small box that reads 500W SLI Ready Power Supply.
With all of this, even reading the box and trying to make a determination of whether or not to buy the case could make for a confusing situation. In this case, the PSU is the same as listed on the website, which coincides with the third listing on the above image. Itís the MGE 400w, SLI Ready + dual fans.
Opening the box, I found that the case is enclosed in a generous layer of foam, so any small dings that normally occur with boxes during shipping and moving would not damage the case.
As you can see, the case is well protected for shipping and handling. My box had a number of small dings and dents, but the case didnít suffer the smallest scuff or blemish.
