The QNAP TS-669 Pro is a lot like the TS-669L we previously tested. The Pro model adds an LCD display and locking drive sleds.

The lower left side is where the power button and USB 2.0 Copy Port is located. The copy function is very useful for backing up data from thumb drives and other USB devices.

Four status LEDs on the front show data activity in the NAS.

Two buttons next to the display screen are used to setup the NAS and check the status of the system. In this close up image above, you can also see the IR sensor for an optional QNAP remote control for media center use.

The TS-669 Pro works with SATA HDDs.

Most of the I/O connectors are located on the back of the NAS. Two large fans keep the HDDs cool and a small fan keeps the internal power supply cool.

There are two gigabit Ethernet ports, six USB ports (2 USB 3.0) and two eSATA ports.

There are two display options, a VGA and a HDMI port. The HDMI port was added to increase the functionality of QNAP NAS products. An optional remote control rounds out the media center experience.

Adding DRAM to the NAS is as easy as removing three screws and removing the cover. The open SO-DIMM slot is on the outside of the motherboard. QNAP offers two expansion options, a 1GB kit and a 2GB kit.

The TS-669 Pro ships with 1GB of DRAM installed from the factory. QNAP glues several of the components and connectors in place so they can't dislodge during shipping.
