Packaging and a Closer Look

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.

Package contents and specifications are listed on the side of the box.

Included with the NAS we have a power adapter and ethernet cable next to reading materials.

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.
