More and more often, we are seeing manufacturers putting money into the product, and not the packaging, which translates to lower cost for the customer. On plain brown cardboard, NZXT used black screening to apply the name at the top, the chassis rendering, and the angular blocks behind it that are based loosely on the shapes and angles in the chassis design.
As we move around to the first side panel, we find the company and chassis naming at the top. Under the carry handle, we find the same specifications chart we just discussed; below that, we find the product sticker with the case part number, and bar codes.
Even with simple screening to apply the black ink, NZXT proves you can still convey a lot of information. Here we have a side rendering of the chassis inside, as well as four images below covering the modular bay, the front I/O contents and location, the inclusion of next-gen FN V2 120mm fans, and discussing water cooling potential.
We usually complain about the lack of effort from transit companies to not muck up things with their stickers, but since this side is identical to its opposing panel, we already saw what is offered here anyways.
The inner packaging consists of thick Styrofoam caps used to offer the chassis the most security against damage in transit. Under that is a typical plastic liner, but even under that, there is plastic covering the entirety of the top, front, and outside of the window in the side panel.
We found it all worked very well; in fact, there was only a slight scratch on the inside of the window, but we feel it was assembled that way, as nothing inside could have hit it. Outside of that, this NZXT Phantom 240 arrived in terrific shape.
