The attractive packaging shows off the contents to good advantage and also gives a quick overview of the extensive feature set. The device and all its accessories are very well packed, ensuring the N5200PRO arrives at its destination in pristine condition. Let's get it unpacked.
Along with the N5200PRO unit, Thecus includes power, USB and Ethernet cables, a warranty card, a quickstart guide, software disks and a bag on HDD mounting screws and keys for the lockable bays. While it would seem that a more extensive manual would be in order here, the guide and software dicks will provide the user with enough info to get the N5200PRO up and running.
PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
As you can see, the N5200PRO is fairly compact considering the fact that it's basically a SFF computer holding five HDDs.
The front is dominated by the five hot-swappable drive holders, each with its own locking mechanism.
