Packaging

On the front of the packaging there are no punches pulled as BitFenix displays the Recon in its powered glory with the "internet connected for mobile devices" line making this controller jump right ahead of the others on the shelf or web page.

With more of the green lighting strewn about over the black background, this panel only offers the Recon naming and the web address to search for more information on this controller at the point of purchase.

On the bottom of the box is where BitFenix decided to add the specifications for the Recon as well as showing the BFR-RCN-KS-RP model number for the Recon.

This little list is what will grab the buyers by the masses. The features like being internet connected, having a touch screen, dual processor technology, status monitoring with alarm, five channels, profiles and of course the sleek looking SofTouch finish.

The ends of the box are quite small to offer much information, but they do display the company name and logo on both ends to spruce things up over leaving it blank.

Just under the paperwork is the accessories and hardware with the Recon packed at the bottom.

Just like with the Hydra Pro, the Recon arrives in a red plastic bag and gets some additional lateral support from the foam caps at each end. Both controllers were shipped inside of a larger box, but this packaging will stand up to some pretty good abuse if it needed to. However, I don't think any e-tailer would ship this too your door in the factory packaging alone.
