Antec have upped the ante a fair bit with the packaging for the P183. The company logo, along with the striking yellow stripe down one side, catch the eye. An excellent picture of the case itself features on the front of the box. On the side we are presented with some design features and an inside picture of the chassis. Moving around to the back of the box, we are treated to some more facts and features in English, French and German. It’s good that Antec have made these changes as the P182 packaging was a bit bland, in my opinion. This should really make the case standout on the shelf.
The box itself arrived in excellent condition, and the way the case was packed inside, inspired confidence. I don’t know about you, but when I receive something the first thing that catches my eye is the way something has been packaged. Opening the box, we are presented with a case that’s very well protected! Antec have used the same packaging which was present in the P182 and its older brother the P180. Why change what is already an excellent solution?
There are 2 foam surrounds, which are moulded to protect the front and rear of the case and an additional cardboard wrap around the main body of the case itself. I think this is an excellent method of protecting your product while it’s in transit and kudos to Antec for continuing to use it.
