Our sample of the Deskstar NAS was delivered in retail packaging. The front of the box carries a bit of marketing information along with capacity and cache information up top.

Here we have the front of the drive with a manufacture date of January 2014. Capacity is listed in the fine print at 4TB along with the spindle speed at 7200 RPM.

The back of the drive reveals the teal colored PCB with several Torx screws holding it in place.
