Packaging for the AS7004T offers an image of the NAS centered and a full house of marketing logos across the bottom.

Specifications are found on the side of the box and include ASUS mobile apps to the right and hardware specs to the left.

The package includes two cat5 ethernet cables, the power cable and drive screws.

The AS7004T is a four-bay device as such we have four locking trays front and center. Above a small LCD screen with blue backlight. The power button can be found to the left and below that the one-touch copy USB 3.0 port.

On the backside, we have a full I/O starting from the top with HDMI 1.4 supporting 4K30p. This is followed by dual USB 3.0 ports and our first Gigabit ethernet port. Next, we have two USB 2.0 ports and another gigabit ethernet port and rounding out the I/O, dual eSATA ports and optical audio.

The drive trays have an underlying metal frame to aide in durability while the locking mechanism is plastic to match the NAS enclosure.

Inside the drive bays, we find a standard SATA backplane.
