Packaging and a Closer Look

The 524X arrived in a simple brown box with NETGEAR branding.

Inside, we have the power adapter, ethernet cable, and drive screws.

The front of the unit offers a brushed metal exterior with the five-button system and LCD above.

Opening the door, we gain access to the drive trays and USB 3.0 port below while to the right we find the power button.

The backside is rather simple for such a powerful appliance. We start at the top with eSATA and USB 3.0 followed up by 10Gbe and 1Gbe ports. At the bottom, we have the proprietary power input.

The drive trays for the RN524X are metal but do support tool-less installation. For SSDs, NETGEAR provides screws.
