Alright, as always we begin with packaging. It's a simple yet informative thing to show as when you purchase a chassis, honestly you do not want any defects and scratches on it. The ARC XL is packaged in cardboard.
Once you take the unit out of the cardboard box you'll notice two layers of foam protecting the unit, which on its end is covered in a plastic bag. Packaging was done decently; risk on damage is fairly minimal. But, and I do speak out of experience, you never know with Fedex, UPS, DHL, TNT. They once delivered a package to me after they had driven over it with a forklift and dared to deliver it (no joke).
Included in the bundle is the standard gear like screws, standoffs and zip-ties, most nice and black by the way, we like that.
Once unpacked, we see a little better what the chassis is all about. The chassis is made out of a steel structure with black faceplate/bezel. There's room for four 5.25" devices. The chassis has ATX, Micro ATX, Mini ITX, E-ATX and even XL-ATX motherboard compatibility and has chassis dimensions of (WxHxD): 232 x 572 x 552mm with a good Net weight of 13.8kg
