Packaging and a Closer Look
Starting with packaging as I tend to do, the DS416play has a no frills approach with its plain brown box and sticker above. The sticker includes all the information about the NAS including bay count, LAN ports, and features.
The scope of delivery of this solution includes the power adapter, Ethernet cable, and set of screws for securing your drives.
The front of the NAS has that glossy bay cover we have all come to love while the right side houses all the LEDs, power button, and USB 3.0 port
Upon removing the bay cover, each tray is unlatched at the top and then slides out. Bays are numbered by dots above the trays.
The trays are the tool-less type with plastic bars that snap in and lock your drives with pins.
The backplane has slots that are ready for SAS drives, although we haven't tested the functionality to know if they are fully supported.
The rear of the unit carries a rather simple I/O. This includes dual gigabit LAN at the top left while USB 3.0 is placed on the right and power next to it.
