Packaging

The main outer box is a brown cardboard box like you would expect a custom system build form iBUYPOWER would ship within. It does not have any relevant information besides the logo and, of course, a shipping label. There are also notes on fragility and informing shippers that computer components are inside, which I can assume is in the hopes the shipper will be kind to the package knowing the sensitivity of components.

After opening the main cardboard enclosure, we find the actual chassis box inside, which thanks to the outer box is in pristine shape. The package is a crisp white with the front of the chassis in full view. The only other information is a warning about tempered glass, which is breakable and the brand logo and chassis or series name in this case.

The skinny sides of the box have the same design with a note on items included in the package, which is for a fully built system. While a lot of items are listed here, we can state that the only thing in the box is the chassis and its relevant accessories. The serial number sticker is also found here along with an angled shot of the built Snowblind config and the safety and regulatory icons across the lower portion.

The broad opposing side of the packaging now shows the LCD side panel in full effect. This is, of course, a rendering as the things showing on the LCD are semi-opaque in real-world usage and not as solid or bold as shown here. But they are quite visible depending on the angle and the white level of the internal components. The same warning and logo and series moniker are in place as the large opposite side.

The internal protection for the Snowblind Element is very good with soft type squishy foam taking the impacts. The glass/LCD panels are covered with cling film, and the entire chassis is wrapped in a plastic bag to ensure that abrasion damage is mitigated.
