The Define Mini arrives in a box much like the one we saw with the R3. They both have the grey strip at the top of the box and the black with an image of the chassis on the front with the name set on the bottom edge of the grey line.
Under the Fractal Design name and logo there is a box denoting the part number and it denoted its black color even though it is the only choice at this moment.
On the back of the box the left hand side discusses what to expect in the Mini and the strength of the Define name. It then lists the specifications and the bit about Fractal Designs and their site address. The right side offers an image of the inside with three windows around it pointing out the top fan option with ModuVent cover, the compatibility of the drive trays for storage and the trio of USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 connections on the I/O panel.
The last side is pretty blank and only offers the company name and the name of the chassis while the rest of the panel is left shiny black.
Inside of the box, the Define Mini is packed with Styrofoam end caps and a plastic liner on it. There is also a layer of static cling plastic applied to the aluminum front panel to give it an added layer of protection should anything bad happen in transit. As for the sample I received, it arrived in perfect condition.
