The front of the SmartStor DS4600 has a lockable door that will keep your drives secure. Each drive has an LED section assigned to it and it shows when the drive is in operation or when a problem has occurred.

With the door open we see the drive carriers in place.

The side of the DS4600 is as we would expect.

The back of the DS4600 is where most of the action is. Here we see the ports that you can use to connect the unit to your PC or Mac. The power button is also located in this area as is the power cord. A large fan keeps the drives and other hardware cool while staying quiet.

Promise spiced up this side of the DAS with some black paneling.
