Packaging

The demo unit arrived in our office packaged in a traditional case box; however, it was wrapped extensively.  After slicing open the plastic wrapping you are exposed to the case and two pieces of Styrofoam.  All PC manufactures (and manufacturers in general, for that matter) are attempting to be green minded and ship in the smallest packaging possible.  The smaller the box is, the more boxes that can fit on a pallet, which means more can fit on a truck / train / boat.  That lowers CO2 emissions and makes it cost less to ship.  All of these factor in to a lower price for the case.  This case carries a MSRP of $59.99.

In addition to the case, there is a MSI Survival Pack included in the box.  Inside this pack is a color coordinated manual, with extremely detailed images and directions.  Also there are cable management ties as well as the mounting hardware necessary.  Finally, a really cool add-on is that there is a pair of MSI dog tags included in the packaging.

How about, no wire management. While it is a cheap case, it doesn't cost extra to cut holes in the motherboard tray. It would have been nice to see this included.

Loving the installed card readers along with the USB3 header. Not sure about the blue but it does stick with the MSI theme.

No fan filters either but again, cheap price, not gonna get many options. Atleast you can buy filters if you ever wanted to go down that road later. Then again, my case didn't come with filters and that was way more than this, lol.

Seems like a stout entry level case. Good to see MSI doing something different.

I've got a few mods going right now that need some holes cut, want to come over and do it for free for me?

Done, but you can't make them in the shape of mudflap girls. This will have to go in the same room as my soon-to-be wife. ;)

BTW take a good look at the space between the motherboard tray and the side panel. There just isn't any space for wiring, holes wouldn't be useful. Size wise its just to small to fit in wire management of that style. Its noticeably smaller than the "normal" mid tower for most people.
