The Proware EN-T800A-CM
I am glad I built such a largo photo booth, because this wouldn't have fit in my last one. Most of the added height comes from the additional area at the bottom designed to allow additional air to pass to the power supply. At the top we see the display unit that comes standard and built into the EN-T800.
Eight drive bays take up a majority of the front and each bay has a set of LEDs to show the status of the drive inside. One thing to make a note of with the drive bays, there is no locking mechanism found on the bays and this may pose as a problem for some businesses.
The front display can be used to setup the system or make changes to the configuration.
At the bottom there is a front USB port so you will be able to quickly back up your thumb drive or external hard drive to the NAS. There isn't a quick touch button on the NAS, a feature we have seen so often that we started to consider standard.
The backplane for the HDDs appeared to be well made and here you can clearly see that the system will accept SAS drives.
The side of the EN-T800 shows more of an industrial appearance; no brushed aluminum here, this NAS is all business.
If you only saw the server from the back you might first think it was a desktop computer.
Here we see the dual gigabit Ethernet ports as well as USB and a COM port for easy battery backup installation.
The other side of the NAS nearly mirrors the first, except this time we found stickers for model and serial number information.
