The NAS comes in a big and sturdy cardboard box that protects its content effectively. We find a facade photo of the TS-869L, which clearly shows how wide it is in order to house eight HDDs, on the front of the box. The model description can be found near the top, left corner, and next to it is a list with its most significant features.
Interested users will find plenty of information about the server's features and its characteristics on the rear side of the box. Thankfully, QNAP used some nice schemes to depict them in a more intuitive way.
On the packaging, you will also find a useful description of both the front and rear side of the TS-869L. Although the LCD screen is missing, the LED indicators at the front will provide enough information about the NAS's operational state.
Contents & Bundle
The NAS is very well protected by two large pieces of packing foam inside the package; it is also wrapped in a thick plastic bag. It will, with such protection, easily handle any abuse during transportation. As you can see by the first photo, a greeting message including QNAP's support and social network-page address welcomes you once you open the top flap of the box.
The small accessories box includes the AC power cord, two bags with screws, two network cables (CAT 5e), a software CD including QNAP's applications, a user's manual, and, finally, a card that informs the user about free firmware updates that QNAP provides for this product.
