Packaging

We're not going to spend a lot of time on the package today. The system ships double boxed with a brown box on the outside and a nice retail box inside. On the enterprise side, we're more concerned with product protection than we are with pretty colors and details printed on the outside. Most of these products are purchased over the internet, so shipping takes precedence over shelf appeal.

As mentioned, the system ships double boxed. Inside, we found layers of foam with the NAS placed deep inside for maximum protection.

At the corners, where most shipping damage occurs, we found a three to four inch space between the server and the box. Closed cell foam fills the space for maximum protection.

Each drive has a separate section for protection as well. The drive sleds are also tucked inside the foam; a place for everything.

 

 

Accessories

The system ships with a paper quick start guide, a three-month trial for 100GB of cloud storage, and a warranty card. A full manual and software are on the USB drive shaped like a key.

On the cable side, you get two power cables and a single Ethernet cable. Also pictured here are the screws for the rack rails.

The rails that ship with the Business Storage NAS are high quality with a large ball bearing section for small server slides in and out from the rack. Also included is a cable management arm, but you need a deep rack to use the cable management arm.
