Packaging for the TeraStation includes a plain brown box with a label at the top right corner. This label carries capacity and model number.

The scope of delivery includes the appliance, power cable, and reading materials. We also have a flash drive that houses the operating system recovery if needed.

The front of the TeraStation houses a small LCD screen at the top with the power button on the left and a set of LEDs above.

The back of the 5200 has the built-in PSU to the top while the I/O includes a switch for boot selection along with all four USB ports. Further down, we have both Gigabit LAN ports and the Kensington lock slot.

Opening the front panel, you can see the VGA connection for your monitor along with both numbered drive bays.

A new addition to the TeraStation lineup is WD Red NAS hard drives. Previously Buffalo used WD Green drives.
