Packaging and a Closer Look

Product packaging for the TVS-463 carries an image of the NAS in the center, while AMD logos adorn the box. The top of the packaging houses marketing information including VMware, Citrix and DLNA support.

Scope of delivery for the TVS includes, two Ethernet cables, power cable, drive screws, and reading materials.

Looking over the tower, it's quite easy to notice the new gold tones of the chassis. Overall, the build quality has stayed the same with the metal chassis and locking drive trays. The front LCD panel is similar to what we have seen in the past and to the far left the power button and quick access USB 3.0 port is available.

The back of the NAS is packed full of outputs, first up we have the PCIe expansion slot at the very top, with dual HDMI ports just below. Moving further down, four USB 3.0 port are connected next to dual gigabit Ethernet ports.

The drive trays are the standard metal type we have seen in the past, and as you can see above fit our test system drives quite well.
