Package and Contents
The MINIX 890GX-USB3 comes in a black box that reminds me of the older Apple iPhone and Microsoft Zune packaging. The front of the box is very clean; you get a large red foil GX logo, the name of the board and a specifications list right up front.
The back of the MINIX box is still clean, but has quite a bit more information on it. Back here you get a good look at the board along with a much more detailed specification listing. Another nice feature is the picture of the back panel I/O ports.
The side of the box lists some "unique" features. Well, you and I both know that none of these are truly unique, but they are still VERY impressive for a motherboard this size. The dual GBe LAN and the wireless connection that sits in a full mini PCIe x1 slot...well, you get the picture.
After you get the lid off of the box you get your first look at the MINIX 890GX-USB3.
It is a nice looking board. Underneath the plastic tray that holds the board is a small box that holds all of the included accessories.
Speaking of accessories, while the ones included are not overly lavish or anything like that, you do get more than enough to put the MINIX 890GX-USB3 into full action.
The one item that I was not overly happy about was the two wireless antenna cables. You have to connect these and then attach them to the I/O back plate cover. This is not overly difficult, but it is a pain to do and if you want to get everything secured will require a couple of extra tools.
