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.

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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town, tech wasn't around, unless it was in a tractor. At an early age, Tyler's parents brought home their first PC. Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
