Packaging and a Closer Look
Packaging for the DS415+ is typical of higher-end appliances. Here we have a plain brown box with minimal branding.
Scope of delivery for the DS415+ includes two Cat5 ethernet cables, the power adapter, and screws should you want to install 2.5" drives in your NAS.
The DS415+ carries a similar appearance to the DS415play we looked at previously. The front houses a glossy bay cover with a full line of LEDs to the right. A small model number is displayed at the bottom left.
Pulling the bay cover off, we find all four drive trays along with a USB port to the right. The power button is located at the bottom right and includes a blue LED.
The rear of this NAS houses two gigabit Ethernet ports to the far left with a Kensington lock next to it. One row down, we find the proprietary power input similar to what Netgear uses with their ReadyNAS lineup and next to this the eSATA and USB 3.0 ports.
Above, we have a closer look at the I/O connectivity for the DS415+.
Rather surprisingly, when removing the included drives, I noticed the DS415+ is using a SAS backplane.
The included drives in our review sample were 5TB Seagate Enterprise NAS drives.
