Packaging and a Closer Look

Our unit was sent over with four 1TB drives, but the packaging stays the same across all capacities. On the front, we have an image of the device to the right while several features are listed to the left.

The scope of delivery includes the power adapter, Ethernet cables, drive screws, and quick start guide.

The front of the unit is quite glossy as noted by my reflection in the image above. We do have a small LCD screen at the bottom and power, USB and the backup button up top.

The back of the NAS houses both of the dual gigabit LAN ports and two more USB 3.0. Just below that we have the eSATA port and the cooling fan.

As I mentioned this appliance came loaded with 1TB drives. The trays are tool-less.
