Packed inside of a cardboard box, we find the Commander FTs front panel offers the Thermaltake name and logo at the top, and offers the design of the touchscreen behind the product image in the center. We also see along the bottom that they were sure to point out that this offers five channels, has a 5.5" screen, and can deliver up to 50 Watts across all channels combined.

Moving around to the side of the packaging, we see an image of the Commander FT inside of a Thermaltake chassis to give you an idea of what it will look like in your chassis. The lower image then shows the thermal probe and fan connections offered.

As we move to the back of the packaging, we find that most of this panel is taken up by the specifications chart that is very similar, if not a bit better than what we found on their site. To the right of the chart, we then find a chassis packed with Riing fans, obviously controlled with the Commander FT peeking out through the 5.25" bay at the top.

In case we may have missed a feature or two, Thermaltake was sure to list twelve features that the Commander FT offers. Things like quick switching from auto to manual control, short circuit protection, and an intuitive fan slider names a few we did not cover already.

Since Thermaltake is a global company, this last panel is sure to cover the main four features that should make you at least ponder purchasing this device in eleven languages to cover markets they sell in.

Removing it from the box, we find that the controller, wiring, and accessories are all wrapped inside of a plastic bag. Not only does this help to contain things, but it also offers a layer of protection for the bezel and touchscreen. Outside of the plastic, we see dense foam used on the front and back of the device, rather than on the side as we usually do. Again, this obviously helps protect against any drops that may occur, but it also makes sure that the touchscreen of this controller is very well protected for damage.
