The package that the DG comes in is quite an attractive one that manages to present the card in a good light. The box is quite small and of a darker colour scheme. If examined closely, the CineVibe headphones we looked at recently can be seen in the background atop a rather pale and expressionless individual.

Inside things are quite simple with the card sitting on the top of everything in a separate tray. Below can be found an opening with everything else included in the package. Things are pretty sparse really, but to be honest, we think the no bloatware move is always welcomed, as is the exclusion of 'bonus' software which will mean a cheaper product for you, the buyer.

Overall, there is only one noticeable omission which is the analog cable that is meant to run between the ROM drive and the sound card. I've no idea why they did not include it; maybe we need to get with the times.
