QNAP TVS-473-16G 4-Bay NAS Review


The QNAP TVS-473-16G comes in a large brown box with a sticker on the front side which has an image of the NAS unit together with a fairly comprehensive spec table and AMD branding for the R series SoC and Radeon graphics.


The rear of the box has six small icons in the bottom left-hand corner displaying some of the uses the unit can be used for; Data Protection, Surveillance Station, Mobile Management, Private Cloud, File Sharing and Backup Station.

One side of the box has an HDD & SSD compatibility information panel at its base while at the top are transportation icons. The other side has a row of icons showing the standards that the unit complies with.


The box bundle consists of; two Ethernet cables, screws for mounting 2.5in drives in the drive trays (the TVS-473 supports both 2.5in HDD and SSD), mounts and screws for M.2 drives, QNAP RM-IR004 infra-red remote control, two AAA batteries for the remote and a quick start guide.

QNAP even supply a couple of heatsinks for any M.2 drives used in the TVS-473. Annoyingly however the one thing missing from the box bundle is what might be one of the most useful; a USB cable for the Quick Connect feature.
