Package

be quiet!'s packaging is always simple and to the point. The front presents us with an image of the unit, as well as some highlights, such as nearly silent operation and promises of high efficiency.

The left half of the back is all about dimensions and measurements. The top portion tells us how many cables of what kinds are present and the intervals at which connectors are spaced. On the bottom, you will find the dimensions of the power supply itself.

The other half gives provides the I/O specs, along with a few points of interest in multiple languages.

All sides of the box simply repeat information found on the front and back.

 

 

Inside the Box

Inside, we find a different take on packaging for be quiet!. Normally things are padded with quite a bit of foam. This time around, the accessories surround the power supply to provide protection with a layer of cardboard separating it all. It is functional, but less protective than what they've provided in the past.

The top of the unit gives us nothing more than a good look at the semi-gloss black finish on the unit.

This side of the unit features all of the information about the Straight Power 10 800W unit.

Moving to the front of the Straight Power 10, we find that all connectors are clearly labeled. There is some additional venting in the front of the unit found here as well.

The back of the unit features the on/off rocker switch and AC input. Standard honeycomb mesh is used to provide ventilation out the back of the unit.
