A Closer Look

The QNAP TS-209 Pro II comes packaged very well to ensure that all is good and intact and ready to rock-n-roll when you take it out of the box.


All the needed hardware, directions, and misc info you need is within a small box in larger box. There is really not that much stuff needed to get the NAS up and working. You get a power cord and power block, network cable, the face plate and thumb screw, Install/Setup CD, and eight flat head screws to anchor the hard drive to the drive racks.


Right out of the box the  comes with the faceplate off and is just waiting for you to install a drive so it can get to work. The hard drive racks held into place with thumbs and are easy enough to get to. Although you do have to take off the front face plate to gain access to the drive area.

Both sides of the NAS have decent size air vents that allow for cross air flow for cooling drives plus they are used to draw the air in and out the back to keep the rest of the hardware cool and stable. The rear fan is a Smart Fan and it will adjust the fan to the correct speed that is need to keep the NAS cool.

There are plenty of features on the outside of the QNAP TS-209 Pro II to keep you informed on what it happening and to be able to attach other devices such as Portable USB NAS drive and thumb drives. Let’s say that you carry a USB Key around with you all the time and you transfer data quite a bit. Would it not be nice to be able to quickly save that data without the need for a PC, well you can. Within the setup of the 209 II Pro you can configure how the One Touch Copy Backup button works and one option is to copy directly from a USB device to a preset location on the QNAP NAS. A total of three USB 2.0 ports are on the QNAP and one of them on the back can be use to connect a USB Printer to it and within a few minutes of setting it up in the software you now have a networked printer that everyone can use.
