Packaging and a Closer Look

Packaging is rather clean for the 3204, with an image of the unit to the right and marketing information to the left. The top left gives a quick run-down of the specs of this NAS along with mention of its three-year warranty.

The scope of delivery of this solution includes the power adapter, Ethernet cable, and set of screws for securing your drives.

The front of the NAS has a set of LEDs to the far left while using a diamond pattern for aesthetics.

The backside of the NAS has a rather large power button at the top followed up by two USB 3.0 ports and the HDMI connection. At the bottom, we have the single Gbe port and power input, while to the left we have a large cooling fan for the drives and internal components.

The AS3204T uses a similar design to the QNAP TS-451 from a few years ago. As you can see, the two halves of the enclosure separate by sliding them in opposite directions.

After opening the NAS, you have access to all four bays with plenty of room to spare.

The motherboard for the 3204T has the N3150 in the center with the Samsung DDR3L next to it, to the far right we have the SATA DOM and the far left houses a PCIe interface for the backplane.
