The packaging for the Pure Power L8 is rather simplistic as well. Aside from the bubble wrap, only the cardboard protects the contents inside.

The Pure Power L8 500W has a semi-gloss black finish on it.

This side of the power supply features the I/O specification label and serial number.

The other side has the Be Quiet! name stamped in it.

Towards the back, we find a honeycomb mesh grill with AC input and on/off rocker switch.

The Pure Power L8 500W is a non-modular unit, so there isn't much going on up in the front. There is a small area of perforation though to aid in heat dissipation.

Be Quiet uses their own Silent Wings fan to provide the cooling for this power supply.
