Most Top Tower products are sold over the internet so Thecus didn't build a large colorful package since few brick and mortar stores will stock these units.
The box is quite large and the cardboard is very dense so punctures will be rare during shipping.
Thecus used dense foam to surround the NAS and we found more than two inches of foam at the corners. This is important because most shipping damage comes from boxes being dropped on the corner and damaging the inside contents. Thecus did a really good job on the inside packaging.
Inside we found three paper cards and manuals and three software disks that include disk imaging, data backup software and Twonky Media.
Thecus only includes a single Ethernet cable with our unit, but most Thecus products in the past ship with two cables. We also received a pack of screws for securing your drives to the sleds and a power cable.
The Top Tower allows you to run 10GbE with the appropriate cards.
