Packaging and a Closer Look

We have a similar look for packaging on the T3 when compared to the T2. There is a lack of marketing information on the box, just an image of the enclosure and the Thunderbolt logo.

The top of the box gives a little more detail on the unit including interface and supported platforms.

The scope of delivery includes a Thunderbolt 3 cable, power adapter, and ethernet cable in addition to the user manual.

The front of the unit house all 12 bays, and the center, a small LCD screen with navigation buttons below.

The backside starts with two Thunderbolt 3 ports and is followed by a single DisplayPort connection. We then have an RJ45 port and expansion port.
