Here we see the power supply as it is packed inside the box. Lots of cables...well packed...moving on.

The top of the power supply shows a great shot of the gloss black finish featured on the NRP-MC1002 PSU.

One side of the NRP-MC1002 is blank while the other side features the I/O specification label.

The back of the NRP-MC1002 houses the AC input and an on/off rocker switch. Ventilation is provided by the large honeycomb mesh grill.

Taking a look at the front of the power supply, we see the modular connections. They are both color coded and labeled for your convenience. There is also some additional venting here for increased airflow.
