Packaging

VIEW GALLERY - 39 IMAGES

The packaging is standard fare and similar to what we saw with the Invader. The line drawing flanked by three feature highlight icons. The thing that caught my attention is the listing on the box as a "Super mid-tower PC chassis," so that is odd as there is no such thing as super mid-tower. However, all of their documentation I see on their webpage and materials calls it mid-tower. I can only assume this was an overzealous marketing person trying to add some nice buzzword hype for the Battlecruiser.

Spinning the package ninety degrees, we now see the first of the smaller sides. This one starts at the top with safety and compliance iconography along with an inventory control label. Then we have the chassis name and a color identifier. Lastly, we have a line drawing with measurements to show you the size of the Battlecruiser.

Spinning the package another ninety degrees, and we have the broad opposing side of the packaging. Here we have a line drawing of the Battlecruiser chassis exploded to show all the main components. Speaking of exploded, the box has seen better days, so it will be interesting to see if this warehousing/shipping damage reached the chassis internally. For full transparency, I did have to pull the caved in part outward so that I could photograph the design and show you guys what's on the box. The items have a numbered legend at the lower right corner, which covers what each of the items is from the blown-up image.

Rotating the final ninety degrees, and we have the last small side of the packaging. Here we have the full spec table like the one on the opening page of this review. If you happen to find this chassis at a brick and mortar, you can see what the chassis supports. The same compliance/regulatory icons are across the top here again.

Pulling the Battlecruiser form the package and we see that the soft polystyrene style endcaps are used here and help avoid any significant shock during shipping. The chassis also has a plastic outer bag which envelops the chassis to help prevent abrasion. Lastly, all the glass panels have a plastic film that helps avoid scrapes or abrasions. I would recommend removing the plastic early in your build as I found the film when being removed built up a ton of static, and I would rather see users avoid jolts to a fully built system by removing the film post-build.
