Package and Accessories
The packaging is good: solid cardboard and a lot of information. Everything necessary is included into the box, excepting hard drives. Besides the NAS, you will find an external power adapter (12V, 5A) with power cord, an Ethernet cable, HDD fasteners, two keys for the HDD bays, a brief installation guide, a disc with software, and a few leaflets in there. That’s a classic set of accessories with nothing extra.
The software and documentation on the disc are accessible through an auto-running shell. Besides PDFs with user manuals, the disc contains QFinder for looking for devices on the network and initial setup, QGet for controlling the file download system, and QNAP NetBak Replicator for some basic backup options. The first two programs are available in Mac OS X versions as well.
