Unlike the other Icy Dock products we've tested in the past, the FatCage MB155SP-B doesn't come in a colorful retail package. This model is designed for server use so Icy Dock chose to go with the scaled down marketing. The server market is accustomed to brown boxes anyhow, less flash means less cost.

A visual how to guide is printed on the side of the package.

The full specification list is on the back. Here you can see that our box was damaged during shipping. We actually like it when that happens because we can test the inner packaging and see how well the foam protects the product.

A feature list is on the other side of the box. We can also the box damage on this side. It took a fairly typical fall during shipping.

Icy Dock does a good job with the packaging. You can see here that the FatCage has a lot of foam around the product and especially on the corners where shipping damage usually occurs.

The accessory package is fairly slim. You get a paper manual, screws for the drive cages and screws for the enclosure.
