PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



A swing out door exposes the drive bays. Each drive bay is removed by simply tugging on the latch. This is a great design because there's nothing take apart, so drives can be replaced with the unit still running.



Inside, we can see the four SATA connectors and the cooling fan. The interior is fairly open to help promote better airflow.



At the back of the unit are plenty of connectors for external storage devices. Four USB 2.0 ports and two eSATA ports are available, as well as a LAN and WAN port. There are also slots for an expansion card and for the battery.



To install the battery, a cover plate must first be removed. Then it's just a matter of inserting the battery and securing it with a single screw. In the event of a power outage, the battery backup will kick in and all unwritten data will be saved to the internal hard drives.

 

PRODUCT INSTALLATION AND TESTING



The N4200 disk trays support 3.5 or 2.5 hard drives. If minimal noise and low power consumption are important, go with 2.5 drives, but most users will probably stick with 3.5 drives.
