Packaging and a Closer Look
Packaging has changed slightly with a new cleaner look and large sticker to the right. This includes model identification along with platform specifications.
A look at the hardware gives us the power cable, 2x ethernet cables, and drive screws.
The Lockerstor 8 offers an LCD panel at the top with controls to the right. Down below, we have the eight bays, all with locking trays. To the left, we have power at the top and quick backup at the bottom.
The tray design starts with a metal core that is wrapped in plastics, including the latch mechanism.
The back of the NAS offers twin cooling fans, power supply up top. To the right, we have USB, 10Gbe, and 2.5Gbe in red.
Internally, the backplane is for SATA drives only.
Removing the shell, we have easy access to the SO-DIMM slots for upgrading memory.
While you have the cover off for upgrading memory, up top, you will find the two m.2 slots.
