Setup of DSM can be two ways; you can have the NAS download the latest install file, or you can do it manually. I normally just let the NAS do it, which tends to be about a 15-minute process.
After setup is complete, you will see the DSM desktop. This desktop is fully customizable but starts with a widget at the bottom right that shows system health and the resource monitor.
Above, we have just a few of the apps that can be installed with DSM. Of course, there is a rather large third-party portfolio as well including some popular solutions like Plex.
The control panel is similar to other DSM 6 platform appliances.
The overlay menu that you can get to by clicking the icon on the desktop looks barren compared the DS916+ we just reviewed, but it does house file station and the storage manager.
