Patriot Javelin S4 Unboxing

Javelin Box Angle
The Patriot Javelin S4 Home Media Server comes in a sturdy cardboard box with colorful graphics and specifications printed on all sides and a nice easy carry handle built into the top.

The back of the box shows the different RAID levels the Patriot Javelin S4 supports with a little detail about each.

The unit comes encased in thick, tightly fitting foam to protect the shiny unit from any damage during shipping and is inside a thin foam bag to protect from scratches.
Javelin foam packing
There is also a box on the side of the foam that has the quick start guide, power cable, Cat 5e cable, enclosure key,  and a CD.  The CD contains a PDF of the full user manual and the configuration software and backup software (Acronis).

Javelin box contents

Inside the unit are four plastic trays and a baggie of screws to hold your 3.5″ SATA drives.  It would seem to make more sense to put these in the cardboard box instead of inside the unit where they could bounce around and possibly hurt something but that is a pretty minor nit.
