Packaging is quite standard for Synology appliances. We have a brown box with a sticker housing model info and a few details along the bottom.

The scope of delivery for this unit includes two Ethernet cables, the power cable, and drive screws. Also, we have keys for the drive trays and guide to get started.

Looking at the DS1817, we have a series of LEDs along the top with status and alert on the left side of the power button and LAN one through four on the right side.

On the backside, USB 3.0 is on the left side with one of the two eSATA ports. The four RJ45 ports are on the right with the top two 1Gbe and the bottom two 10Gbe.

The backplane for this model is setup for SAS and SATA.
