Tyler's NAS Test System Specifications





Setup hasn't changed much for QNAP over the past year. We still follow the QTS routine as seen above. I chose home use for this review.





Moving on, I set up the admin information.




We then come to the services setup, where you can choose what you would like to utilize.




Our drive setup uses four Toshiba 3.5" drives and a single Crucial 250GB in the 2.5" bay for caching.




Lastly, we have the overview of our setup.




The desktop has changed slightly since I last used a QNAP appliance. Several apps sit on the desktop waiting for first use before they install. And at the top right, we have a new taskbar.




The control panel is similar but does have a few new items added but a familiar layout.




The app center includes quite a few programs ready for download which are categorized on the left pane.




Added since my last use is this performance monitor that gives you an overview of the performance of your drives, CPU, memory, and LAN.
