First Impression:

Very little information about AC Ryan is available at their website, but checking the shipping label on the box shows the Ryanpower2 was shipped from The Netherlands. The exterior box was in decent shape considering the distance it traveled, but the product box itself did not fare as well. It appears that the box was overstuffed. The seams were bulging and things did not fit in very well. This is probably an issue that will never happen again, but something I did notice. The pictures below show the box and the contents.

The Ryanpower2 is shipped with a power cord (happened to be a European cord in this instance), 4 mounting screws, a few black wire ties, a fairly complete instruction manual, and a Conductx lite black set of power leads.

Upon unpacking everything I noticed some damage on the power supply itself. It appears that the damage to the product box also showed up as a dent in the case of the supply. The pictures below show that dent. The damage is on the side of the power supply that mounts to a case. This had me concerned that mounting would be difficult.
