iXsystems FreeNAS Mini 4-Bay NAS Review

TweakTown Rating: 92%Manufacturer: iXsystems





The iXsystems FreeNAS Mini ships in a labeled box with the main hardware double boxed.




Inside, we found the NAS in a separate box and the drives held in place with dense foam on the side. I should note here that the drives had foam covering them as well, but you don't see the extra material in this image.




iXsystems sends a few fun accessories.




The packaging for the main unit secures the NAS very well. Not only is this portion double boxed, but the NAS is also wrapped in dense foam that prevents it from being damaged during shipping.







iXsystems knows how to have a bit of fun. In the documentation, you learn about Beastie, the FreeBSD mascot. Also included in the documentation are a paper manual and some stickers.




Not only do you learn about Beastie, but you also get a plush toy of him as well. To top off the fun accessories, you are sent a set of Daemon Horns. On the serious side of things, the FreeNAS Mini also includes a power cord, keys for locking the front door, and screws for mounting drives to the sleds.
