Opening up the Antec packaging, we found the PSU to be well protected with bubble wrap. The other items we found were the user's manual, mounting screws, and a standard 16AWG United States power cable. Everything appeared to be in great condition and nothing was noticeably damaged during shipping from Antec. The user’s manual was very in-depth for a PSU, covering all topics from the installation process to the pin configuration for each of the different connectors. All of this information is presented in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
