Phisical Features

More like a hub than a NAS drive, the USB Station 2 is a very lightweight block that measures only a few inches in any direction. It’s made of plastic that split into the two fetching colours of white and grey.

The front features three LEDs that designate power, LAN and USB storage activity. There’s quite a lot of bleeding between them so its a little hard to tell if only two are lit up or all three, but they’re handy enough.

One side features a small button that is used to “Disconnect USB Disc”, presumably in the same way that you “safely” detach USB devices from your PC. Does anyone use that though really? Personally I just yank it out and hope for the best.

There’s no active cooling in this device, helping to keep power consumption low as well as noise output, but there are several rounded holes in the top to allow any warmer internal air to vent upwards and outwards.
