Like many NAS units in this class, the feature set is quite extensive. This is perfect for business environments since new demands and needs can arise at any time. Having the ability to implement a new feature or service without the hassle of installing extra equipment is important.
QNAP's packaging isn't anything to write home about in terms of looks, although it does provide important features and specs right on the box. What's important is that the NAS arrived without a blemish on it. With a cost of around $600 US, it's important that the product be protected as much as possible from any damage during the shipping process.
An accessory box is filled with everything you need to get the system up and running (minus hard drives, of course). This included a power adapter, power cord, two Ethernet cables, setup CD, installation screws, and keys to lock the HDD bays.
