Packaging and a Closer Look

Packaging for the AS6208T is quite colorful with images on the front. Down below there are several logos denoting support for Apple, Windows, and Linux.

On the side of the box, ASUSTOR gives their own comparison with the 6208 being stacked against older eight-bay appliances.

The scope of delivery includes the power cord and two Ethernet cables along with screws and reading materials.

Taking our first look at the 6208, this unit is much larger than what I am used to with the bays laid out in a vertical stacking pattern. At the top, we have a full menu integrated into the LCD while to the far left we see the power and one-touch backup buttons.

This unit is cooled by two large fans that maintain silence during operation. To the top, we have the integrated power supply while the right side houses dual eSATA, and four gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.0 ports.

The backplane for the AS6208T is a SATA-only setup.

The trays do require you to screw in your drives, but they are plastic coated metal trays for rigidity.
