BitFenix Portal Compact Mini-ITX Chassis Review (Page 2)

The packaging is nothing special, just plain cardboard and black print on it. The front panel offers stylized bars at the top and bottom, where the bulk of the panel shows renderings of the Portal with and without a window.


The right side of the box shows us a sticker describing the white chassis inside along with the model number, EAN, and UPC codes. Near the bottom, we see a specifications chart, much like the one we covered on the last page.


The back of the box addresses a few things worth noting. There are notations at the top for the 300mm of video card space, room for a 120mm radiator, and the ball bearing runner is also displayed. The lower section shows the chassis, pointing out the aluminum exterior, and shows that the innards slide out the back of the chassis.


The last exterior panel shows all four versions of the chassis by name, and there is a green sticker in the box for the white Portal with the window. Below that, we see a rendering showing two cases stacked behind one another, one for each model, to show off the I/O panel placement.


Inside of the cardboard, there is a clear plastic bag that is wrapped around the entire chassis, legs and all, to protect the aluminum and the window at the top. To keep the chassis from getting dented, or being crushed, BitFenix used thick Styrofoam end caps, which allowed our sample to arrive in terrific condition to be reviewed.
