QNAP TS-869 Pro NAS
The QNAP TS-869 Pro uses a tabletop layout so it fits well on top of a filing cabinet, shelf or desk. On the outside the TS-869 Pro looks nearly identical to the TS-869L, but the L lacks the display screen and buttons at the top right for configuring the NAS without a PC.
On the front we see the eight drive sleds that are of the locking kind for increased security. The power button is on the lower left side and accompanied by a USB port surrounded by a copy button. When you install a USB drive in this special front USB port, you can hit the copy button and copy the data to the NAS.
Vents on the side allow air to pass over the internal components to keep them cool and to reduce any internal fan speeds.
The TS-869 Pro uses two massive 120mm fans to keep the entire system cool. Using large fans means the NAS can pull more air through the NAS while keeping the fans at a lower speed. This reduces audible noise coming from the NAS.
The QNAP TS-869 Pro is a feature rich NAS with several ports on the back. At the top is QNAP's newest feature, HDMI out. QNAP also includes six USB ports, two of which are USB 3.0. A pair of eSATA ports are also anchored to the back as well as dual gigabit Ethernet ports that can be teamed for increased redundancy or speed.
QNAP includes a sticker on the top of the NAS that labels the drive bays. It might seem simple, but when loading and unloading the NAS this is very useful.
Despite being a Pro model the TS-869 Pro does not accept SAS drives, the connectors are not SAS compliant.
QNAP has some of the best drive sleds on the market today. Each bay has a label with a drive number and can accept both 3.5" and 2.5" drives. The individual sled lock is something we're seeing less of this year, but we feel it is a superior method of securing your drives in the NAS.
