With a price tag of approximately $750 US, it is imperative that the NAS be packaged carefully to avoid any damage during transit. I was pleased to see the unit was well protected by foam blocks and wrapped in plastic. It arrived without a blemish on it.
Accessories include an Ethernet cable, power adapter, power cord, Li-Ion battery, software CD, backup CD, an assortment of screws and keys, and a quick start guide. The only component the user must supply is hard drives.
