Q300L arrives in an eco-friendly cardboard box which features some basic imagery of the chassis and lists the significant specifications. Inside, the case is covered in a clear plastic sheet and held in place with polystyrene blocks.
Removing Q300L from its packaging we are met by a pleasant looking computer case which adopts a stylish visual appearance. On the prominent side, the entire panel is transparent but unlike many modern enclosures nowadays, Q300L does not utilise tempered glass. The panel being used here is of plastic construction but still delivers the desired outcome users are able to see a complete view of the installed system within. Four oversized screws secure this panel onto the chassis and there is front panel connectivity towards the front edge. (more on this over the page).
Over on the reverse side the panel is solid and of steel construction. In a similar way to the other side, this panel is detached via four oversized rubberised screws and simply lifts off rather than sliding backwards in a conventional way.
While Q300L can be positioned in the usual orientation as shown in the pictures above, we can also place the case down onto this reverse side in a desktop/landscape fashion and have the enclosure flat on the desk with the rubberised screws acting as feet.
On the next page well explore the features in a more detail.
