Unboxing the Fractal Design Define XL Black Pearl
Like most things these days when the box showed up it had a few nicks and dings from the wear and tear of today’s shipping companies. As far as the boxes used to ship computer cases, this one is fairly light on graphics which is ok by us, we would rather the money be spent on the case not making the box look pretty.
The front of the box has a nice image of the front of the case and some marketing text about the features.
On the back there is another graphic of the inside of the case and a few marketing highlights for this case.
The right side of the case simply stated which color we were getting, Black Pearl. And we didn’t bother to take a picture of the other side of the box because it is just solid black with no text or graphics.
Like most companies today, Fractal expected the shippers to toss the package around a bit so they used the standard one inch thick foam blocks on either side to protect the case inside.
We grabbed a shot of the case still covered in the thin plastic bag and with the heavy foam blocks still in place. Case looks like it made the journey well.
With the foam and bag removed there is still a nice sheet of plastic on the front aluminum panel.
