A Closer Look at the Device

It is time for us to take a closer look at the device itself. TerraMaster keeps their units quite simple, so we’ll get through this page quickly.

Front-Facing Features

The front cover itself is made of plastic, and so are the drive trays. Instead of opting to just look pretty on the front, TerraMaster used the expensive aluminium where it matters. The only metal part on the front is the area around the LEDs and the power button.


Speaking of the LEDs and power button, here we have them in a closer view. I quite like the pinhole LEDs which give the device a premium look. There’s an LED for each drive and one for the networking port. The power state is indicated with its own LED too.

Rear-Facing Features

The most prominent feature on the rear side is an extension with the 80mm fan. Next to it, we find the connection options.

At the top, we have the two USB 3.0 ports and at the bottom is the RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet followed by the power connector.


Bottom View

The next couple of sides aren’t the most interesting, yet we’ll still have a look at them. Let us start with the bottom which is filled with intake air vents and a rubber foot in each corner. The feet will catch the vibrations caused by mechanical drives very well. In the middle, you’ll also find a product sticker.

Side View

The side shows the surrounding aluminium shell well. the company logo is also printed on both sides.

Top View

The top doesn’t have any features as such and just shows us the aluminium shell.

The Power Supply

The power supply doesn’t deliver a whole lot of power because it isn’t needed for a small device such as this. The CPU is very efficient, so it doesn’t need much more than the peak power draw of mechanical HDDs to function. The 12V and 3.33A which it can handle make up a possible power delivery of about 40W.

Drive Trays

As I mentioned earlier, the drive trays are made of plastic, but that’s not a bad thing. One thing I do miss in them though, is a simple spring mechanism for the release latch. It would give the trays a more premium feel. That said, they work as they should and allow you to mount both 3.5″ and 2.5″-type drives.
