Packaging and a Closer Look
The 5N2 is featured right on the front of the box artwork. To the right, we have features listed and below compatibility and connectivity.
The backside of the box gives a solid comparison between all current Drobo models.
The scope of delivery includes two Ethernet cables, the power adapter, and reading materials.
Like previous Drobo appliances, the 5N2 came packaged in a carrying bag.
Above, we have our first look at the 5N2. Across the bottom, we have a series of LEDs for power and status.
The rear I/O is quite clean for a NAS, consisting of two Gigabit Ethernet ports and a power input. The large rocker switch is the power button.
Removing the front cover, we reveal all five drive bays. These are tool-less bays that do not even need trays. Your drives just slide in and lock with the gray clips on the left.
For this review, we are using Seagate IronWolf Pro 6TB NAS drives.
