XION is a company I have to say I've not really heard much about in recent years. Founded back in 2002, XION is dedicated to producing quality PC cases and components for everyone. When the XION XON-980 showed up for me to take a look at I jumped onto the XION website to check out what I had in store. The XON-980 is part of the XION Gaming Series and is targeted at the game-playing crowd that demands the best for their computer. If you're looking at building a new computer soon (or upgrading your current machine with a snazzy new case) perhaps the XION XON-980 will be something you'll consider – and after making its way through the gauntlet of the OCC test suite we'll see whether or not it deserves to be part of your next build!
The box from XION is quite plain, which I tend to prefer over extremely fancy boxes. I don't like thinking about a company spending that extra few bucks per case on flashy cardboard I'm just going to throw away. The front of the single color box has an isometric view of the case but no other information except that it is a computer case from XION. The right side contains basic information about the case and the model number. The backside is identical to the front side of the box without much information at all. The left side contains shipping information that is of very little use to anyone… but who cares? Let's see what's inside!
Cutting away the packing tape reveals a very well-packed case with a good inch of soft open-cell foam on every side of the case. Your delivery man would have to be extremely rough with this box to even begin to cause damage to the contents – this is always a huge plus in my book as I have terrible luck with anything that gets delivered to my doorstep.
