Packaging

The packaging for the S500TG starts at the front edge, or at least what I thought would be the front. It has large black bars top and bottom along with one midway through which helps the line drawing of the S500TG chassis pop a bit more than a plain brown cardboard wrap would. The packaging is refreshingly devoid of iconography and marketing, favoring clean imagery and the name. Kudos to Thermaltake for this as it helps to represent the confidence the company has in the chassis standing on its own without the need for marketing fluff.

Spinning the box ninety degrees, we find the first thin side of the package, which has the spec sheet along with some warning and compliance iconography. There are also inventory control labels and barcode space at the bottom of this edge.

Spinning another quarter turn, and we get the opposing side or rear of the package. And it's the same as the first side we looked at here, so I guess there is not much of a story to tell as we see on most packages, or at least Thermaltake wants you to get the S500 TG unboxed to see what it's about.

Spinning the final quarter turn, and we see the same spec sheet, which is not necessarily a bad thing. This time there is no inventory control or barcodes, just the necessary spec info and the bottom carrying the copyright info.

The S500 comes wrapped in a plastic bag; the chassis is then enveloped between two endcaps made of a softer polystyrene style shock-absorbing material. I like this much more than the hard Styrofoam caps many chassis have. These do not shatter or turn to chunks with an impact.
