Packaging and included accessories

The HTPC 8000 arrived on my doorstep in a plain cardboard enclosure that had the case's model number and features in plain Arial text on the box's front panel. The cardboard is pretty sturdy though and I didn't see any dents or gouges in it to indicate the case was damaged during shipping.

 

The HTPC 8000 arrived encased between two heavy-duty pieces of foam and was wrapped in a clear plastic bag to protect the exterior finish from any dust or particles during shipping.

 

Here's a quick shot of everything out of the box to see how the case was secured before it was shipped to us. 

 

The only included accessories that were shipped with the HTPC 8000 was a quick installation guide and a small bag of screws, grommets, and cable management zip ties.

Now at NewEgg for 89 bucks! This is a fantastic HTPC case, the build quility is very impressive! Installation was a breeze, I didn't have to remove the front panel, I just intalled the DVD drive in the holes and it lined up perfect. I would suggest buying the blue LCD module, it is well worth the 30 bucks and is very customizable. For 120$ for the case and LCD, you cant go wrong! I highly reccomend it, especially if you want something thats furniture-quality that no-one else has...

Can't honestly say I'd want that in my HT system. It looks like those cheap Crosley all-in-one stereos.

CASE HAS POTENTIAL BUT THE FRONT PANEL DESIGN RUINS IT. IT MAKES IT LIKE JOHNBGOOD DESCRIBES.. MAKE THE FRONT PANEL SIMPLER OR HAVE A COVER TO HIDE AWAY EVERYTHING. AS IS IT IS THE FRONT PANEL LOOKS LIKE IT WAS DESIGNED IN THE 80S
