Inside the Box

The inside is just as plain as the outside. Short of the cables and the plastic bag, there is no protection between the cardboard and the power supply.

The i700 is finished in semi-gloss black.

As there aren't any modular connections or vents here, there just isn't much to look at on the front.

That is, unless you want to look at the lack of cable guard where all the unsleeved wires exit the power supply. If you look closely, you can see the yellow cables have been smashed against the hosing. Given the right circumstances, it would be possible for this to wear through and cause a short in the unit.

The bottom features the 120mm fan and stamped grill that covers it.
