Packaging

We're not going to spend a whole lot of time talking about the packaging today. Thecus ships the N4510U in a double box package. We didn't even bring the outer box in the office since it was filthy from the shipper's conveyer belts.

 

Here we see the inner box that is clean and ready to go.

There are nearly three boxes, if you count the inner cardboard that is next to the NAS after the first layer of foam.

The rack rails are tucked inside one of the foam pieces.

Finally, we get to actual unit itself. With all of the protection between the NAS and the outside world, I think I could drive over the package with my truck, and still not hurt the NAS.

Inside we found the accessory package. Three physical disks are included, a universal install disk, Acronis True Image and Twonky Media. Here we also see the included rack rails that secure the back side of the NAS in a 4-post rack and two papers, one that reminds you to download the new software from Thecus.com and the other is a warranty card.

The N4510U uses an internal power supply, so you get a standard power cable. An Ethernet cable is also provided. Screws for both fine and coarse drives (2.5" use fine and 3.5" use course) are included as are keys for the drive bays.
