Packaging and a Closer Look

Following Synology trends, the packaging is still the brown box and a sticker to the right. This sticker houses all the necessary information along the bottom including the model and submodel at the top left.

In the box, we have the power cable, rack mount hardware, and power cord.

The top left houses the status LEDs and power button, below we have locking drive trays with model identification centered to the Synology logo on the right.

The backside is a little busy with power input on the left followed by three cooling fans spaced for each bank internally. In between fans, we have eSATA, dual LAN and USB 3.0.

Drive trays are metal with this unit without any of the tool-less features.
