The packaging of Neo Mini is similar to the packaging you see of on the budget cases. The packaging is simple as it has the basic cardboard box with a description of the case inside. Entire package weight about 13Lb. This is about what you would expect from Mini ITX case with tempered glass.

The case is supported by two plastic foam inserts and it is wrapped in a protective bag to prevent from any accidental scratches during shipping. Once the case was out of the box and free from the plastic bag, I found another protective film on the tempered glass.

This case does come with an accessory box. Inside this box, I found about two dozen random screws, four zip ties and instructional manual for the case.
