Packaging and a Closer Look

Packaging is quite colorful. We have an image of the NAS itself to the right with leading specifications listed on the left side.

On the backside of the box, you will find a full hardware specifications list in several languages.

The scope of delivery for our sample included the ethernet cable in yellow and power cord to the far right. It did include drive screws and firmware on a USB key as well.

The front of the NAS houses a thick door panel covered in brushed aluminum. The LCD panel can be seen through the door.

The drive bays are tucked away behind the door with a simple locking mechanism in each.

On the back of the unit, we start with eSATA at the top. This is followed by USB 3.0 and two Gbe ports. Moving down, we have dual 10Gbe ports and PCIe expansion.

The backplane for the 626X is SATA only, which does come as a surprise being such a high-end unit.

Removing the chassis cover, we ran into a 2240/60 m.2 slot on the back of the motherboard.

For the most part, the 626X uses a small form factor PC motherboard, it does appear to be a custom design but does include full-length DDR4 slots.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town in northern Ohio, technology was never around unless it was in a tractor. At the early age of nine years old, my parents brought home our very first PC and I was instantly hooked and quickly learned what it meant to format a hard drive, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95 as my parents slept. As I grew up, many things changed around me, but my love and enthusiast nature always kept my PC at my side. Eager to get deeper into technology, I started reviewing products.
