The Box and Goodies -
The box that the N5550 shipped in is fairly plain, but this is a common trend in products that are meant for medium sized businesses and larger. In most cases the people buying this will not hold onto the box for long and if they do it is only in case the product needs to be sent back for repair.
Inside the box you have the N5550 safe inside a plastic bag and two Styrofoam end pieces along with a few accessories. Thecus has chosen to drop in the power cable, manuals, utilities DVDs, mounting screws, two sets of tray keys and a single network cable. We do wish that manufacturers that make NAS devices with two LAN Ports would include two network cables. It is a small detail, but one that can be important to the end user.
