Here, we get our first look at the NAS. The front piano black cover uses a magnet and tabs to stay in place. The first time you reattach the cover, it springs out of your hand. There is a small LED light at the top and in the middle. Unlike many other NAS products, this light is tame and won't draw attention to the unit when used in a living room.

With the cover removed, we see the two HDD drive sleds that can hold either 2.5" or 3.5" drives. The two center buttons allow the sleds to slide out of the unit.

The drive sleds are aluminum, and so are the NAS internals and top cover. This allows heat to come off of the HDDs into the case, and then dissipate into the air. The NAS acts as a giant heat sink, so a fan is not needed.

On the back side we see the four USB ports, Ethernet RJ-45 connection, the power connection, and on the far right, a recessed power button.

Rubber feet keep vibration from passing through the NAS and into your other components.

The top of the unit is a nice brushed aluminum.
