QNAP TS-109 Pro Exterior

QNAP TS-109 Pro has an excellent exterior look and features. The interface is extremely user friendly, and the light silver finish combined with black front panel makes the unit look much more attractive. The front panel indicators on the TS-109 Pro are very clear and indicative of the unit's activity. The activity LEDs on the unit are of different colors for different activities. Now lets move on to the have a look at the exterior of the QNAP TS-109 Pro.

The QNAP TS-109 Pro doesn't come with any thing special other than what is necessary to get it working and nothing more can be desired from such a unit. QNAP provides stands to accompany the TS-109 Pro. The unit also included a intallation chart which was very helpful and explained each step in a very detailed manner to get the NAS server rolling.
