It's a good thing Amazon offers the 1U12LW with free shipping because the package is massive. This is a full length server, so it's important to have solid packaging to keep the internals safe.
Our sample arrived double boxed and with dense foam around the actual server.
The accessory package consists of drive mount screws, fan cable extensions, a spare fan, driver disk, cable ties, and a full printed user manual.
ASRock 1U12LW-C2750 Server
Here we get our first look at the storage server. We were impressed with Seagate's ability to put eight drives in a 1U package, so we just about did a backflip after learning that ASRock managed to fit twelve 3.5-inch drive bays in the same 1U height.
On the front of the server, we found two USB 2.0 ports, a recessed reset button, a power button, and a server ID button. The server ID button lights up blue when you press it and also lights another button on the back of the server. This makes it easy to work on the system from the one side to the other.
The system is a full length server, but we wouldn't expect anything less from a system that can hold twelve 3.5-inch HDDs.
To get into the system to install or swap HDDs, you have to unscrew the top panel.
There are a couple rows of screws, but with sliding drive rails, this shouldn't be an issue other than the time consumed to get inside the system.
The back of the server is where we found most of the goodies. Going from left to right, we found the power supply and its cooling fan; a serial port above the VGA display port; two USB 2.0 ports on the back under an IPMI (out of band management) next to two gigabit Ethernet ports; and on the far right is a PCIe slot.
Here we filled the PCIe slot with an Intel X520-SR2 10GbE adapter.
