QNAP Turbo NAS TS-1079 Pro Review - The QNAP TurboNAS TS-1079 Pro

We check out a massive NAS from QNAP that is the TurboNAS TS-1079 Pro. Let's get this 10-Bay behemoth cranking.

The QNAP TurboNAS TS-1079 Pro

 

Moving onto the bulk of the package, the TurboNAS TS-1079 Pro is a big device coming in at 22cm x 33cm x 32cm at 9.84kg. Considering ours came already installed with 10 hard drives in it, my back got quite the shock when I lifted the box with another 7kg of weight in it.

While it is quite large, the chances are extremely high that it's going to be smaller than any custom built system and quite possibly lighter as the chances are a larger steel chassis would be used. You get a good idea of what exactly is going on here, though.

As we start to move in closer, we can see in the top corner we've got some instructions on how to unlock the disk trays while we've also got the HDD Sequence order. As we've mentioned already, this is a 10-Bay NAS we're dealing with.

Staying at the front, we move down to the bottom and we've got our power button and a "Copy" port via USB. If you've looked at any motherboard reviews in recent months, though, you may know already what the blue USB port represents. If you don't, it means that we're dealing with a USB 3.0 port instead of the standard USB 2.0 that we see on most other NAS devices.

The other key areas on the front sit above all our main drive bays with the first being on the left. We've got a number of LED lights here that resemble the Status of the NAS along with connectivity in regards to LAN, USB, eSATA and 10G.

On the other side we've got that screen that's present on a lot of the higher end QNAP units along with a couple of buttons that let us adjust a few basic options. You will probably find yourself not really having a need to use the buttons as you hope to be able to do everything via the browser, but if you need to manually set the IP or something like that, the screen and buttons are extremely handy.
