Inside the Box

Opening things up, we find that the unit is well packed.

The PT-650M features a rough texture finish in black that gives it a ruggedized feel.

Both sides feature the FSP logo stamped in the side with a few additional vents toward the bottom.

The back side features their "Arrow Dynamic" venting as well as on/off rocker switch and AC input.

Taking a look at the front we find the modular connections available on the PT-650M.

Flipping the unit over reveals the 120mm fan cooling the power supply.

All modular cables that are included are fully sleeved. Four of them are sleeved to be flat while the fifth is sleeved with nylon mesh. I'm not entirely sure of the reasoning, but since it is the short SATA cable that is designed to power hard drives stacked on top of each other, I assume that it is for increased flexibility over the flat cables.

Also included is the user manual, AC input cord, 3 Velcro cable ties, and thumb screws.
