The PC Extension station comes packed in a rather simple retail box. Inside the box it is surrounded in Styrofoam and well protected. The box includes the PC Extension Station along with a power cord and a USB cord.
It did not take too close of an inspection to find some rather serious issues with the Logisys Desktop Extension Station. Right out of the box the front panel of the 5.25" drive drawer was falling off and needed repair. By the third time I had pulled the drawer out, the whole front panel fell off of the drawer.
