Packaging and a Closer Look

Packaging is quite simple for the Atlas with simple branding.

The end of the box offers box contents and product specifications.

The front of the unit houses eight drive trays, lockable while the left houses the power button, USB and backup button recessed in the chassis.

The backside gives access to quad gigabit ethernet ports, four USB 3.0 followed up by HDMI, system reset and power input. There is a Kensington lock slot at the bottom and Thunderbolt 3 up top.

Included with the Atlas, we have the power cable, Thunderbolt 3 cable and magnetic keys.

Drive trays are plastic and tool-less.

Using the included key, we push a retaining clip into the chassis on the side of the unit allowing the removal of a door. This door tucks away the 2.5" SFF storage bay.

Along with the storage bay, the door conceals the memory slots making it very easy to upgrade memory with this unit.
