The Packaging

Our sample shipped to us double boxed from the factory and your N8200XXX shipped from an e-tailer should arrive in the same manner.

Thecus has always packaged their products very well regardless if it's a high end enterprise product or a small consumer NAS.

Open cell foam is used extensively throughout the package and the accessories are kept in a separate area away from the NAS itself. Here we see that even the NAS slide rails are kept in a smaller box and secured down the middle of the package.

Moving one layer deeper reveals the N8200XXX NAS which is surrounded by white foam. The NAS also ships in a plastic bag to keep moisture out and has a layer of sticky plastic on the top portion of the cover.

The N8200XXX ships with software and a quick start paper guide. A full manual is included in PDF format on one of the discs as well.

Two power cords, a Category 5e Ethernet cable and screws for mounting your drives are included with the NAS. A set of keys to lock the drives in is also included, so you have a bit of a security system that keeps your drives from walking away.
