Packaging and a Closer Look
The packaging starts of the same as any Synology appliance. We have a brown box housing a sticker that carries all the information about the NAS.
The scope of delivery of this appliance gives us two Ethernet cables, power adapter, and drive screws.
Pulling the NAS from the box, we get an idea of how small this device is. With that said, it still has many of the same exterior features that we find on the full-size appliances. This includes six LEDs across the front four of which show activity for the drives and the top two for LAN.
The backside houses the drive trays, which are plastic and do require screws to fasten the drives. To the right, we have both Ethernet ports with USB 3.0 above and power below.
To give you an even better idea of the size of this NAS, I have lined up an HGST 7K1000 2.5" HDD in front of the appliance.
Internally, the backplane does have SAS cutouts although the Armada only supports the SATA interface.
