The packaging on the XIOS XS is simple and elegant in design. The top of the box has the logo and product name affixed in the center surrounded by the multimedia icons.
The bottom of the box has a ton of information. Everything from what is included in the box, to the specifications of the product. A small picture of the XIOS XS is also on the bottom, along with the companies physical address and web address.
The sides of the box show product statements in multiple languages.
Once we remove the cover and open the box, we are greeted with a small card that explains some of the functions of the unit and the product disclaimers on the back.
When removed from the box, we see the included equipment with the XIOS XS. Here we find an HDMI cable, the power adapter and cord, the remote and a small guide on how the XIOS XS Media Center should be hooked up. We found the included HDMI cable to be a great surprise. They are usually left out of these kind of purchases forcing you to spend additional money just to be able to hook it up. Kudos to Pivos for this. Now that everything is out of the box let's take a closer look at the XIOS XS Media Player.
The XIOS XS looks just like the box from the top. Company logo and product name in the center.
On the bottom you see the XIOS XS Media Center logo and company info. It is a little difficult to see from this angle, but almost the entire bottom is a rubberized skid pad to help keep the XIOS XS Media Center in place.
From the front, we see the XIOS XS logo on the top , and the remote control sensor facing the front.
One turn to the right, reveals the micro SD card slot and a USB input. Vent holes are located directly above the micro SD slot.
Continuing to the right, we see the optical audio, LAN port, HDMI port and the micro USB power port.
One more turn reveals the second USB slot and vent hole to keep everything cool.
Now that we seen everything, Let's test this baby!
