The Packaging

The Synology DiskStation package has a bit of mystery to it on the front. This isn't really a good thing even though it looks really cool.

Luckily Synology realizes that people want to learn a little about the product on the retail shelf before they reach for their credit card. On the side we found the model number, short hardware specification list and a small list of applications.

It's a shame Synology doesn't use the large sides of the package to give the full breakdown of what all the DS411+II is capable of.

The last side of the package shows some of the features, but they don't provide any details.

The inner packaging is pretty good, but not the best we've seen. The NAS is kept in a separate location from the accessories and enclosed by a minimum of 1 inch of foam.

Speaking of accessories, you get a Quick Start Guide in paper, a disc with a full manual, backup software and the like. A couple of bags with screws for installing drives, an Ethernet cable and the power module are also included.
