Areca's controller card packaging hasn't changed much over the years. On the front of the ARC-1880 package we see some images of the controller.
The same package is used for three cards in the series and all of their specs and information are listed on the back of the package.
The inner package on the ARC-1880ix-24 is packaged tightly with all of the accessories, controller, manuals and foam that keeps the controller secure in the middle of it all.
The accessory package consists of a pair of well written and large manuals as well as some cables for connectivity.
