Packaging and a Closer Look

The packaging for the MyCloud EX2 carries a nice blue exterior. On the front of the box, we have an image of the EX2 with minimal marketing information to the right.

Removing the packages from the box, we see WD has packaged the NAS in a separate setup of dense foam. The accessories for the unit are tucked away in their own box.

The scope of delivery includes the power adapter, Ethernet cable, and reading materials.

The front of the unit carries on the MyBook design with three LEDs mounted to the right.

On the back of the unit, we have the gigabit Ethernet port alongside dual USB 3.0 with power and reset on opposing ends.

One unique feature WD has always had with the MyBook setup was the removable drive via the top panel. As you can see, they have integrated that setup here with the EX2.

Internally, we have two 2TB WD Red hard drives.
