During deboxing, I am very surprised to find a vast amount of packing foam and anti-static bags. The main box opens to another box full of sleek foam separators. With the amount of padding I have no doubt about the safety of this product during shipping. It’s nice to see a company effectively packaging a product.
After removing the Edge HD2 from all of its foam I felt honored to lay my hands on the sleek rubberized exterior. The Edge HD2 feels solid and rigid. I notice fan vents on the top and bottom of the case and the power and HDD indicator on one side. This truly feels like a trophy.
Continuing our deboxing we find the rest of the goodies included which are also neatly boxed. The front of the box says “Microsoft Windows Included” so I expected the media or starter edition but Sapphire aimed to please when they included Windows 7 Ultimate. If Windows 7 Ultimate is included with all Edge HD2s Sapphire has definitely made a great selling point. Ultimate might be a little overkill but I’m not complaining.
My only complaint so far are a lack of a Powered USB port. This plays a big role when a Remote is thrown on a Mini-PC. Without a Powered USB Port, you cannot turn the PC on and off with a USB remote. You still have the option of Wake-On-LAN but this only works with a wired connection. Not a real big deal, but nothing is perfect.
