Antec starts right off with the marketing on the front, throwing efficiency and energy savings information at you.

The back gives you a little bit more information about the power supply, but isn't overly crowded.

One side features of the box has all of the I/O specifications for the PSU.

The other side has a good breakdown of how you can save up to 25% on your energy bill. Most people don't know it, but the power supplies included in most PC's from Dell, Gateway and others have terrible efficiency and the 65% efficiency line in their chart is representative of that. This does assume 100% load 24/7/365, though. Nice marketing try Antec.

The top features a shot of the unit and dimensions.
