The courier was Sendle. Delivery parcel came in a small white box and was placed right outside my doorstep on Saturday morning. I wasn’t home at the time (never had a courier deliver on a Saturday before) so am relieved the parcel is still there when I am home later that evening.
Here’s the parcel next to a opened Pi 4 packaging for context of size. No dents or marks (My second surprise!).
Will the surprises never end?! The ArgonOne is double boxed! The seller took the time to wrap the ArgonOne like a Christmas present.
For folks outside Australia, the wrapping paper used above is a sales brochure from a Australian company called JB Hifi.

Great review TK ! From what I have read elsewhere the plastic base ensures wifi connectivity

Of course! For Wi-Fi. I am too focused in a complete shielding (and properly grounded) of the case, but in doing so will kill Wi-Fi as well. Be nice if they have an option for a metal bottom lid.
I believe the I need to install some packages for the fan to work. So far I think the passive cooling will do me good so will leave it for now.
I’m going to buy a second Argon one soon, will turn the fan on on the second one and then compare. Just looking for a seller with stock.
Also going to fire up the Pi and have a listen to see what needs tweaks work (or don’t). Stay tuned for a new article on that in the following weeks.
