Product Packaging

The Crystal 460X RGB arrived wth no physical damage to the packaging, considering the amount of glass used to build the case I would consider that a good thing.

There is nothing flashy or exciting about the outer packaging, and that's OK with us. Flashy boxes with glossy images cost more money to produce and any additional cost in producing a product gets passed on to the consumer. The outer packaging is standard brown cardboard with the company name and logo as well as the product name and information printed on the front. On the back side is an exploded view of the case.

Inside the box you'll find the case wrapped in plastic and surrounded by thick polyethylene closed-cell foam. The front and glass side panel were completely covered by the foam inserts, so even if the outer box had taken some damage the glass panels were well protected.
