Being a budget power supply, the i500 doesn’t try to wow us with its packaging and that is perfectly fine. The unit is packed away with all its accessories in a simple cardstock box. The front gives us the relevant information quickly with the watt rating, 80 PLUS rating and 5 year warranty clearly displayed. Flipping the box over we get a more in-depth look at the specifications and features.

Diving into the box we find the i500 comes packaged with a users’ manual, a 6ft power cable and four mounting screws for installation.

Finally we get our first look at the i500 unit. The first thing many will notice is that the power supply is not modular. As the i500 is a more budget oriented unit this really isn’t that surprising but still something to consider when setting up your system’s cable management.
