Fractal Design Define XL R2 Case Review


Fractal Design Define XL R2 Packaging & Unboxing

Shippers can sometimes beat up packages, so hopefully this case has plenty of protection around it. I know I was quite concerned with how squished the box was when I received it. Before we crack the top, let’s take a quick look at the outside.

The packaging is a plan cardboard box, which will help cut their costs, and inevitably your cost. The first side here is nothing more than a drawing of the Define XL R2.

Rotating 90 degrees, we have a drawing of what the interior looks like, as well as a marking of what model (color) that you have. Again, we’re looking at the Titanium Grey today.

Finally, getting to something a bit more exciting, we pop the top and are greeted by the Define XL R2 wrapped in plastic with two nice thick Styrofoam blocks on the ends. There looks to be plenty of space and padding in here that everything looks like it should be fine.

Pulling the case out of the box and pulling the plastic off, we’re happy to see the front door has plastic protecting its slick brushed aluminum-like finish.

Upon further examination while out of the box, the case definitely did not get damaged, which always brings a sigh of relief and smile to my face!

Last but not least, we do find the user’s manual and inside the case was the box that contains your standoffs, HDD, SSD, anti-vibration, thumb, and PSU screws, and some zip ties.
