Packaging and a Closer Look

The packaging for the DS716+ changed slightly as this box is more closely resembles what you receive with a router. At the top right there is a full-color sticker that includes information about the NAS along with its model number.

The scope of delivery of this solution includes the power adapter and two Ethernet cables.

The front of the NAS has a series of LEDs for LAN and NAS status with the power and backup buttons below. Each of the trays carries a green LED above it for activity.

The back side of the NAS has both of the Gbe ports to the left with the proprietary power below and USB 3.0 to the right. To the far right is the eSATA port for expansion units.

The trays for the DS716+ are plastic all around and use the same tool-less mechanism as past appliances.
