The Performance Power 800W is packaged in a rather sleek two-tone black box, complete with a single picture of the power supply on the front and a listing of the features and specifications on the side and rear of the box.  The box is packaged in a simple bubble wrap bag, is reasonably snug, and arrived without any damage. Included is a power cord and screws, and nothing else. It’s definitely a very sparse package, perhaps reflecting a more affordable price tag for the unit that NZXT is pursuing. The Performance Power can be found online for as low as $140 if you look around. It’s on the less expensive side of the market for an 800W unit, and is priced about the same as popular 750W models, so depending on how you look at it, you’re either getting an extra 50W out of the deal for the same price, or you’re getting a good deal on an 800W unit.
