    i honestly see nothing wrong with Akho's signature picture, it's not violating any of the rules there... I must admit that I sometimes look at the pic... quite funny... :roll: :shock:

    Back on topic -

    yes, listing contents is extremely helpful. It helps put a face on the manufacturer of the item in question and helps set it apart from other similar devices.

    Keep it up, great reviews here. :thumb:

    I love elaborate packaging. When I pays me $ for the best hardware, they better be giving me the best packaging too. IMHO, best packaging ever is Asus. Always with the biggest boxes n classiest designs n also best bundles. No such nonsense like gay elf n fairy pictures on them. :lol:

    LOL, I never use new cables unless I need to. I like to keep the stuff in the box as much as possible for higher resale value, but not like I sell them most of them time. :haha:

    I liked Asus' packaging, especially the motherboard. the manual is fully detailed, and even lists down about the BIOS settings.

    MSI board manual books seriously disappoint me - the newer ones have too little BIOS info compared to the previous ones. :shock:

    Voted yes :D

    Packaging I think for the manufacturer shows pride in the product the consumer has purchased. Recently purchased a Corsair HX-520 modular power supply .. damn nice packaging even a velcro sealed bag for your cables ;)

    Do u guys actually keep the packaging once the hardware is in ur PC?

    first thing i do, off to the bin it goes.

    Boxes I do (don't make me take a pic LMAO) for stuff that I can resell at a later date (cough upgrade cough).

    Blister packs are evil incarnate and must die in the dark pit of trash can hell.

    Ram packs I keep coz you never know when they need RMAing.

    Yeah, I keep the boxes cause we usually end up giving them away. :haha:

    Well, from Microsoft hardware, I tend to keep the box for RMA purposes. The stupid RMA guys always ask for the full package.... grrr. easier to keep the box than try and argue with them on dust collection.

    Ohh thats good :D

    Responding to ZuePhok ...

    Depends usually when we buy something new its an upgrade and the new packaging makes a nice spot for the old hardware. On big boxes and crap not unless there is a reason but static bags and ram packaging I hang onto.

    Was a really good question ZuePhok and PsYkHoTiK a good point as well. I have Arctic cooling and Corsair products here with warranties up to 6 years .. do we need to hold onto those for RMA ?
