  • Summary: This is just to prepare you that you might receive your item in this condition and not to be surprised. It seems that it is the newegg way of shipping items. I did call newegg about this and they tell me that it is the way they do this for large items.

Well thought out design )hardware and software)

  • Summary: We have started using Synology products at work and the sysadmins can not stop raving about how easy the integration into our environment was. Software is very intuitive. Would definitely give these a try over buffalo products.
