Packaging and Includes

The standard retail box is carefully packed inside a second cardboard box with plenty of padding for extra protection.  The P182SE enclosure is protected by a cardboard sleeve and securely nestled between two large foam end-blocks.

All three stainless steel side panels are covered with plastic film to protect the mirror finish.  Antec certainly went to great lengths to insure the P182 Special Edition enclosure arrives at its destination unharmed.

Packed inside the lower HDD cage is a small box of parts, which contains all the accessories that come with the case (drive rails, screws/hardware, optional mid fan mounting wires, cleaning cloth, cable ties, and top-rear exhaust fan cowling).

Documentation includes a multi-lingual User’s Manual, Snake light user instructions, AQ3 warranty sheet, and a small pin assignment label for the I/O cable connectors.
