Packaging and a Closer Look

Product packaging stay true to past models. A brown box with subtle branding opens up with a sticker o the right side offering information about the NAS system.

Included with the NAS, we have the power cord, ethernet cables and drive screws.

Looking at the front of the unit all six bays lay vertically across. Each drive tray offers its own LED at the top and bay number along the bottom. The power button is tucked away in the center with status and alert LEDs to the left.

The backside houses two large cooling fans, power to the left and LAN below. Each side of the NAS is flanked with eSATA expansion ports while the right side hosts extra USB 3.0 ports.

The bottom of the NAS takes advantage of the chassis to allow for very simple memory upgrades by allowing a panel to be removed.

Internally, we have a Delta 250w power supply.
