If you're shopping for a NAS for the first time it's important to know that some big box retailers like Fry's usually have some products on the shelves. When shopping in the retail jungle, you want to learn every detail about a product in this price range before making a decision on what model to buy. QNAP does a good job with their retail package.
We found nearly every detail (other than performance) just by reading each side of the package.
QNAP has one of the best inner packages on the market with a very liberal amount of protective foam around the NAS.
Inside we found a printed quick installation guide, a note to download the latest firmware, a software disk and mounting screws for the drives.
On the cable side, we received two Ethernet cables and a power cable.
