The remote control is standard for most QNAP NAS with HDMI but still it's quite useful.

The TVS-682 follows the typical QNAP design and measures 319.8mm in length, 224.9mm in width and 231.9mm in height.

To get a better idea about the size of the TVS-682 we placed it right next to the 5 bay TS-531P which we just finished testing.

I was surprised to see that unlike most QNAP models there's no perforation on either side of the NAS.

The fascia is different than most models by QNAP since it has four 2.5/3.5" and two 2.5" trays (the on/off button and a USB 3.0 port are both located on the lower right).

Unfortunately unlike most QNAP NAS models the trays used in the TVS-682 are made out of plastic.

The rear of the TVS-682 is more populated with connectors than any other NAS we've seen in the past.

At the top we see the two PCIe slots (can be used with 10G/40G Ethernet cards and even PCIe SSDs) and right beneath we see a 80mm exhaust fan, three HDMI ports (two v1.4b and one v2.0), 4 USB 3.0 ports, 4 Gigabit Ethernet Ports, 2 microphone 6.3mm inputs, single 3.5mm audio/line-out and a Kensington port.

There's also a 40mm exhaust fan along with the on/off power button and the power port at the lower right corner.
