The box design that looks professional and gives the product a nice premium look. On the front of the box there is the Egreat logo in white at the top left with the A5 product name to the right.

At the bottom right of the box there are the product feature icons.
As can be seen in the unboxing, the box content is quite succinct and includes the Egreat A5 Media Player with attached antenna (non detachable), HDMI 2.0a cable, AV coaxial cable, SATA + power combined cable, DC power adapter, a learning IR remote control and English User Guide.
