Packaging

Cougar has one of the most interesting box designs that I have seen in a while as the packaging actually mirrors the look of the power supply. On the front we find wattage, warranty and efficiency information.

Moving towards the back, we get bombarded with information. It isn't so bad when you realize that the top half of it is the same thing in multiple languages. Here we see an excellent I/O specification chart as well as a decent list of connectors available on each model.

Also on the back is some information pertaining towards the use of their Vortex fan as well as some more on the DC output quality and voltage regulation.

Both sides of the box just reiterate the information on the back just in another language.

Top and bottom are blank. It would be nice to see some of the information on the back spread out so it wasn't so overwhelming.
