NAS Reviews


Once the box was fully configured, I started exploring the advanced options. Like the Synology NAS, this device has too many options to fully explore in this review, but I'll cover some of the more important ones.

The TS-101 has full support for defining users and groups of users, and restricting particular users both with read/write privileges and quotas. Figure 4 shows the basic user management screen. Qnap also provides full support for the creation and management of network shares.

Figure 5 shows the basic screen, which allows the creation, deletion and access control of network shares. As shown in the figure, a number of shares are pre-defined.

One important feature I like to see on these boxes is logging. Figure 6 shows the basic log screen, where events can be filtered based on their severity.

In this case, the log is showing that my network connection quickly bounced up and down a few days ago. Odd. Along these same lines, the TS-101 also supports email notification of errors, as shown in Figure 7. During my review of the unit, the only non-test notifications I received were a couple of cryptic warnings: "Re-launch process [ImRd]" and "Re-launch process [btd]".
