Packaging and the TS-470
The QNAP TS-470 carries quite an attractive package design. Front and center, we have a picture of the NAS with QTS 4 marketed right next to it. We also have claims of 450 MB/s read and 423 MB/s write using all four Gbe ports.
Included with our sample, we found four CAT5e Ethernet cables, power cord, drives screws and keys in addition to the disc to aide setup and SanDisk X110 256GB SSD for caching. The SSD does not come included - it's the drive we are using for testing.
The front of the unit mirrors what we have seen in the past from four bay appliances and QNAP. Up top we have the LCD screen for managing the NAS, the power button and copy buttons to the left.
The back of the NAS houses the connectivity. Here we have four gigabit ports, analog audio in and out, with dual eSATA and four USB ports split between the 2.0 and 3.0 standard. At the bottom, we have the HDMI port for enjoying your media on your HDTV.
The motherboard of the unit resembles a full Mini-ITX board, with a rather large cooler taking care of the processor. To the left, we have a PCIe slot for the dual port NIC and optional 10Gbe NIC. Next to the cooler we have the 512MB DOM, and DRAM below. If you look closely, there is also a mini-PCIe slot up top for what im assuming would be a wireless NIC.
Here we have a good shot of the included Intel Celeron G550 and socket 1155 retainer.
Above, we have the backplane for the four hotswap bays of the TS-470. This unit features the
Marvell 9235 controller.
Included internally we found the appliance using a FSP power supply with a total capacity of 250 watts.
Moving on, we have the PCIe dual port NIC that's included with the TS-470.
