PRODUCT INSTALLATION AND TESTING



I will be using three Western Digital 250GB SATA hard drives in the NAS, and QNAP has a list of compatible drives listed on their website. Each drive is secured to its own tray via four screws on the bottom and then reinserted back into the bay.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


When the unit boots up for the first time it will prompt to configure a RAID array. The options are RAID 0/1/5/6/JBOD and single disks. For this review I'm going to use RAID 5.



There's just a little more configuration needed after the array is built. Insert the included CD and click on “Install QNAP Finder”.



The program will locate the NAS and prompt you to begin the quick setup wizard. It is easy and I highly recommend this method for both novice and advanced users as it is the quickest way to get up and running.



A few simple setup questions are asked, and when it is complete the administration page can then be accessed for advanced configuration.
