The Akasa Freedom Xone arrived in your standard issue LAN case style of box, featuring the chassis.  After 8 days on the road you can understand the number of times this box of loaded, unloaded, maybe dropped and it still came through without a single blemish on the case itself.

The box was of heavy cardboard walls of the box are thick and the case is secured between two hard Styrofoam pieces, providing more than enough protection to the case and help up nicely in shipment. Our interest is in the Freedom Xone chassis itself, so let’s move on.

With the Akasa Freedom Xone came your typical standard, screws, cable ties (which are white, black ties would have been much nicer with the black interior however, the Freedom Xone does not have a windowed side panel so it is not really that important) manual, speaker, Hard Drive rails, two 5.25” to 3.5” adapters and a nice label featuring the Akasa logo and the chassis.  As you can see there is a nice array of goodies to enable most any possibilities of equipment being installed.

Let’s take a closer look at the exterior now.
