I was very impressed by the packaging with this product. It lets you look inside and see everything inside the box, yet is very sturdy and looks good. But the greatest feature is the fact that you can actually open the box with out the use of a dremel, razor blade, or industrial cutting laser! In this day and age where companies seem bent on making the packing absolutely impossible to open (lest we actually use the product), the 2-second process of opening the packing was a real treat. Plus, you can actually put the package back together exactly like it came from the factory. The engineer that came up with the design has my heartfelt thanks.
Once you get the box open, you find the components neatly bundled and organized inside. There is the DD5 itself, with its cords bundled with a zip tie, some extra fan filters, a packet full of temperature sensors with some tape to put them on, and the envelope with the instruction manual on CD.
