Packaging follows the red on white color scheme we have seen in the past. We have an image of the device to the right with capacity listed above.

The Linkstation is a rather small form factor device, coming in just larger than a 3.5" drive and as wide as two drives stacked. We have a black plastic enclosure endorsed by red outlines and subtle branding.

The backside offers a cooling fan and a reset button to the left. Just below this, we find a fan on/off switch, USB 3.0 port, and RJ45 gigabit LAN port.

Drive trays are basic, thin plastic skids at the most but do the job lining up your drives with the rear I/O.

Included with the Linkstation 520, we have two 1TB WD Red HDDs.

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.
