Opted out for a purchase from PC Canada vs. Amazon due to their proximity, shipping rates and item price. Did not regret it. The price was the lowest of everyone online and in-store, the item was shipped the same day and arrived pronto. Will be shopping here again.

Link Aggregation improves connection speeds beyond the limits of a single network cable or port.
USB 3.0 ensures speedy transfers to external storage
DS416 optimizes your working experience by enabling faster and more efficient data transfers. Equipped with one USB 3.0 interface in the front panel for quick access, and two USB 3.0 interfaces in the back, for external storage access is made fast and easy.
