"Out of the box" probably means "from the beginning".  If
you buy a new monitor, and take it "out of the box" it probably
will work just fine for you and you will be happy.  You will then 
have had an "out of the box" experience, or "OBE".

Thinking "outside the box' means thinking in a manner that is 
unusual, or creative, or not within the confines of the ordinary.

Hope that helps.
