Packaging and a Closer Look
The packaging is quite simple for the Qsan with subtle branding ques. We have a sticker to the right with model information.
A closer look at the label offers hardware specifications, and the model number bottom right.
Scope of delivery includes two Ethernet cables, the power brick and drive bay keys.
The design of the XN3004T follows the rest of the XCubeNAS portfolio. We have distinct lines separating the drive bays from each other and the side of the unit. The power button is tucked away at the top with a one-touch copy button next to the USB 3.0 port. Down from the power button, we have a series of LEDs that are hidden behind the smoked exterior of the NAS and to the right four 3.5" drive bays each lockable with the included green key.
The top of the NAS offers a drive layout diagram.
The backside of the NAS offers dual gigabit ports at the top followed by USB 3.0 and USB 2.0. We then have HDMI, reset, and power input. To the left, we have a large cooling fan.
Using the included green 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 and SO-DIMM slot used for memory upgrades.
Removing the drive trays, they are tool-less for 3.5" inch drives but have screws included for use with 2.5" SSDs.
