The front of the box has the main uses for the N4200 including File Sharing, iSCSI, FTP Server, and ZFS Snapshot listed with pictures of what you can do with the N4200. The bottom lists the various types of server you can use the N4200 as. Opening the box we find that Thecus has bundled the box inside a bag with two Styrofoam end pieces holding it solidly in place. The hardware bundle is in a cardboard box with the software bundle and manuals in another, smaller box.

There is a long metal piece that constitutes the Battery Backup Module. Once the NAS is open simply plug it into the slot and when power is turned off or cut off the unwritten data is sent to the HDD while the BBM is on. The bundle comes with 26 long screws and 23 smaller screws to install the hard disks and secure the unit, more than enough to use everything on the unit. The Power cord plugs into the 19V adapter then into the N4200 to give it power. The software bundle consists of setup software and Drive Clone 5.0 V1.1 to back up software. A LAN cable and warranty card rounds out the bundle.
