Synology Disk Station DS410j – Packaging , Bundle & Hardware

Product image

Out of the box we can see that there is little to plug in and little to read in respect of a manual. A power lead, Ethernet cable, disc and warranty information is all that is provided. The unit itself is packed within a cardboard and foam on both top and bottom.

The chassis itself is well built and there aren’t any little clips that could break or come loose from opening and closing many times. On the back there are thumb screws which, once undone, allow us access to the drive bays.

The drive bays, each one held in by 2 screws, allow easy removal for upgrade or replacement. We have gone with 4x 500 GB Seagate Barracuda SATA 2 drives for our storage solution, giving us the option to run either JBOD (Just a bunch of disks) or RAID 5.

In the back of the Disk Station there are two 80mm Fans and these produce very little in the way of noise, the normal operating volume is no louder than a standard PSU, surprisingly when forcing the unit to perform under heavy load for a long duration, the fan noise doesn’t increase anything troublesome even from a few feet away.

In terms of connectivity we have gigabit Ethernet and 2 USB ports are available for expansion of additional storage, printer or USB speakers. On the front Panel is a large power button which illuminates once powered, 4 hard disk LED’s, a LAN LED and a status light that shows the unit is functioning correctly.
