Packaging

The packaging it typical of the industry, where plain cardboard is used with black screen printing used to offer the information. On the front, they offer the manufacturer and product naming above a large rendering of the Define S with a window. At the bottom, we find the Fractal design logo, that this is the windowed editions, and we also find the site address if more information is needed to be seen.

The right side of the packaging then offers the Define S naming at the top, but this time the rendering offers a look at the internal layout of this design.

As we move around to the back of the packaging, we find that the top is taken up with eight features found in the chassis, along with explanations of what they are or do. Moving lower on this panel, we find an exploded view of the chassis that shows everything from fans, filters, and removable bits all numbered to correspond with the features listed at the top.

Then as we get to the last panel holding information, we find a very condensed version of the specifications and cooling system options. To be honest, if they offered what we covered earlier, it would take one of the larger panels to cover all of it, but with the address right on the box, even in the store, you can take a minute to see what all this chassis has to offer pretty easily.

Internal packaging is also pretty much the industry standard. They cover both sides of the window prior to wrapping the entire chassis in a plastic liner to protect the surface of the chassis. To keep it from taking damage if someone were to drop this box on the way to your door, they went with the typical thick Styrofoam end caps.

 

The bottom bit of Styrofoam shows tape on the side, and this is due to the hardware being secured in a cutout of that cap, rather than allowing it to float around inside of the chassis in transit. All in all the packaging did its job, but the chassis was not exactly perfect upon removing all of this.
