At the face of the box is a photo of the PSU's fan grille, along with the model name and capacity description, in large font. You will find more details on the backside of the box.

Packing protection is good since a foam spacer surrounds the PSU.

The bundle includes the user manual, fixing bolts, Velcro straps, and 24-pin ATX plug to jump-start the PSU.

The cooling fan is almost as large as the top side of the PSU's cover. Besides the AC inlet and power switch on the front side, there is another switch for toggling the PSU's passive operation on/off.

On the two sides, we find stickers with the model description. One of these also depicts the power specifications and safety icons.

The modular panel has 14 sockets; two 24-pin ATX, five peripheral, two EPS, and five PCIe connectors.

The fan grille does not restrict airflow and looks nice. Without looking at the power specifications label, you can easily take this to be a 600 W PSU because of its small dimensions.

The cables are long. It is nice to see 700 mm long EPS and PCIe cables. The EPS connectors use 16AWG gauges, and the same goes for the PCIe cables that host two connectors.

The number of peripheral connectors is adequate, but I disapprove of the small distance between peripheral connectors, especially the 4-pin Molex ones.
