The box is quite large and heavy. At its face is a photo of the PSU with the modular panel exposed. Unfortunately, around the back, not much information is available. If you want more information about the product, scan the QR code.
Protection inside the box is good since the PSU is surrounded by packing foam. Additionally, the bundle is rich, including several Velcro straps and zip ties.
External build quality is topnotch. The PSU might not have the brushed aluminium finish of the Dark Power Pro 12 models, but the finish is still nice.
The power specifications label entirely covers one of the PSU's sides.
The modular panel has 14 sockets, the smallest one of which is for the overclocking key.
The fan grill is a bit restrictive.

All cables are long, fully sleeved, and black. There are two EPS and six PCIe connectors in total. Good about the latter is that they are on separate cables, so voltage drops won't be as high as with cables with two PCIe connectors.
At 150 mm, the distance between peripheral connectors is adequate.
