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.
