The box is simple and shows the four different color versions of the Beebox-S. Packaging ensures the unit is very well protected.

You get many accessories including the 65W/19v AC/DC adapter, VESA mounting hardware, M.2 slot riser, SATA breakout cable, IR remote, and of course manuals. There is also a driver DVD.

The top of the unit has a glossy finish and a small power button at the corner. The power button does illuminate, but there is an option in the UEFI to disable this illumination. The bottom of the unit features a large air intake vent. Air will be pulled through this vent and exhausted by the CPU's blower fan, ensuring that cool air circulates over storage devices. There are four rubber feet, and inside each foot is a screw, the unit is held together by these four screws.

The front of the device features a headphone jack, a USB 3.1 type-C port, a USB 3.0 port, and an IR receiver. The rear of the device features your DC 19v input jack, two HDMI ports, DisplayPort, 1Gbit LAN, two USB 3.0 ports, and a Kensington lock slot. The vents at the rear are for fan exhaust.

The power supply is external. An FSP Group 19v/3.42A adapter can output 65W to the unit. It uses a standard jack, so if you do lose this adapter, you will be able to replace it easily.

You will need to open the device to install your memory and storage. The device does support most M.2 devices (I used a 950 Pro). In the accessory package, you will find a bracket to extend the length of the screw hole. Be very careful with the WIFI antenna leads, they pop off too easily when touched.
