Package and Accessories
The product box is designed in a simple way. It is made from cardboard and has plain black labels. A small photo and a list of technical specs are added with stickers. The box also shows the NAS’s serial number and MAC address.
The box is 23.7 x 22.7 x 15.3 centimeters large and comparable to today’s 4-disk NASes for 3.5-inch drives. It has a plastic carry handle.
The NAS itself looks serious and top quality. As opposed to its size, its accessories have not been diminished. On the contrary, there is one new and original thing included. So, the box contains the NAS, some HDD screws, a network cable, a 12V/3A power adapter with power cord, stickers with numbers for HDD bays, a CD with software, and a quick installation guide. A localized version of the guide may also be included by the local distributor. The new accessory we’ve mentioned is a plastic stand that ensures sufficient air intake for the fan located at the bottom of the NAS. It also looks aesthetic enough if you don’t mind wiping dust off black glossy surfaces. You don’t have to use this stand if you put the NAS down on a clean and smooth surface of a desk, especially as this model has sturdy and tall rubber feet.
The software CD contains Synology’s traditional tools: DSAssistant for searching for NASes on the network and setting them up (Windows, MacOS, Linux), DownloadReplicator for managing file downloads (Windows, MacOS), and Data Replicator 3 for data backups (Windows only). The disc also contains user manuals in PDF format and firmware.
