2:05 /

The QNAP TS-259 Pro is a dual-bay NAS server that offers great performance and features for a high premium. It's a device best suited for environments with high networking demand and for those who possess an intermediate to advanced know-how of networking.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:06 >> Dong Ngo: Hello Dong Ngo here and if you notice I'm smiling I don't do that very often and the reason is I'm having here with me the very first editors choice NAS server of 2010, the TS259 Pro from QNAP. So this is a dual bay NAS server with a 2 bay, it can be accessed from the front, it can offer the storage for up to 4 TB. The two hard drive can be set up in either RAID 1 or RAID 0 configuration and then the hard drive can also be very easily replaced by using a Philip head screw driver and changing this 4 right here and if that seems too easy the latch has a lock to keep it from being pulled out [inaudible]. On the front here you're gonna find a very popular feature in higher NAS server which is the front USB port. This port can hold extra storage device and if you press the button above it the entire content of the storage device will be copied into the server's internal storage. On the back here the NAS server seemed to have at least dual everything. It has dual Ethernet ports, dual ESATA port and double dual USB port 4 USB port here. On top here there's something unusual about this NAS server it has 1 VGA monitor output to hook a monitor to it. The NAS server is supposed to be managed from another network computer via its web interface which is one of the best. It can also be used as a surveillance system by supporting IP camera such as this one. Unfortunately it does not yet support motion detection. It also performed really smoothly in our tests without any problem because it's powered by Intel's new dual core Atom processor and 1 GB of RAM. For more information on how it performs and other features check out the in depth review at CNET.com. Once again my name is Dong Ngo and this has been the first look at the TS259 Pro NAS server from QNAP
