Inside the Box

This is just how things sit inside the box when you first open it up. The power supply has a single layer of bubble wrap to protect and cushion it and is surrounded by cardboard on all sides. Under each of these sections of cardboard are cables and accessories.

The LZP-550 is finished in matte black. The I/O specification label for the power supply is located on the top.

Kingwin displays the Lazer Platinum logo on one side of the power supply.

The other side is blank with the exception of a serial number.

The front of the power supply houses the universal modular connections. Each connection comes with its own dust cover and two have been removed for the picture.

The back features the typical honeycomb mesh grill for excellent ventilation of the unit.

On the bottom, we find the 140mm fan that cools the LZP-550.

Also included in the package are a few modular cables to tailor the power supply to your specific needs.

Rounding off the list of what is in the package are the AC power cord, user manual, mounting thumbscrews and a warning card that lets you know the fan doesn't spin until it is necessary.
