We are not going to comment on every single page, but we will point out several of the features as we get to them. The main administration page gives us shortcuts to the functions and also expands the menu on the left side of the screen.
In the General Settings page you start off with the very basics, what you NAS is called, the port for the administration access, date and time and so on. What you name your server is also what you use to access folders. I used ts1279 and to get to my shared folders I simply type //ts1279 and my public folders appear on the page.
The base TS-EC1279U-RP ships with four Ethernet ports and you can even expand that number with a 10GbE card.
There are a few options that you can change on the Hardware page. The unit we tested with has redundant power supplies, this was the first time we'd seen an option to enable Redundant Power Supply Mode on a QNAP NAS. QNAP develops their software so that if an option isn't available you don't see it in the software.
In the event of a drive failure or other event your NAS can reach out and contact you. This can take place via email, SMS (text messaging) or instant messenger.
The Power Management page is where you can restart or shut down your QNAP NAS. You can also configure your NAS to be on a power schedule. This is very convenient if your office uses the NAS locally, but is unused in the evening.
The Network Recycle Bin has saved me a few times when I've deleted the wrong folder on accident, but the feature isn't enabled by default in the software package.
QNAP is always coming out with new features so you will want to use the Firmware Update function at some point. The process is very easy, just download the new firmware or software package and point the NAS to your download.
