Package and Contents
When we first received the package, we expected something a little more glamorous from XSPC. We have been accustomed to the black and blue packaging we have seen from its other components; however, the Photo 270 Tube Reservoir came in a plain brown box with a bar code label. We were a bit disappointed, but it is entirely possible that this is a pre-production marketing unit shipped out in cheaper materials. We are unsure, but we suspect XSPC is likely planning to package their final retail unit with their usual marketing flare.
Here is a closer look at the label which helps identify the item very easy.
Once we got inside of the package we were quite impressed with the protective packaging. It came bubble wrapped and also was protected by foam padding all around. This is very important as the XSPC Photon 270 is made of glass.
Here is the Photon 270 out its packaging and our we were struck with its quality build. The fit and feel of the Photon 270 screams high end. Inside, we also found four mounting screws, an LED O-ring and a white 5mm LED.
Here is a closer look at the XSPC 5mm White LED and O-ring. We appreciate that XSPC sleeved the LED which gives it that classy look. The O-ring is used to hold the LED in the tube reservoir.
Let’s move forward and take a closer look at the Photon 270 Glass Tube Reservoir.
