If low rate packaging translates into cheaper overall prices for me, I'm all for it. I understand how some people can like packaging to be nice. If it's going to cost me more for it then I'll stick with the plastic bag in a UPS envelope. Granted, the item gets to me in one piece.
Yes. Fancy packaging is a waste of money. One of the reasons why Kent and other people with similar business models can offer us such excellent products at these price points is by dispensing with the overhead associated with other brands.
