Seagate PRO NAS DP6 Review


Getting the Seagate PRO NAS configured and ready for data is one simplest tasks I have found yet.  There are no desktop applications to install on your network or any hoops to jump through.  Instead, all you have to do is open up your web browser and populate the URL with http://discover.seagate.com/.


Once started, the page will find and present your NAS to you.  The two-step process is simple.

  1. Check for software updates
  2. Configure the administrator’s login and password.

Once the software version check and upgrade has been completed, the utility will ask you five simple questions.

  1. Device Name
  2. Administrator login
  3. Password
  4. Confirm Password
  5. Time zone

Your storage and volume are configured by default to use SimplyRAID.

Thecus W5000 NAS Review

Just when I thought it was safe to open a box again, Thecus drops one at my door and tells me that they have produced the First Ever Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials NAS. After coming hot off the heals of the Buffalo WSS 5400 NAS review, I thought I would have a break to get back to some good ole fashioned Linux based NAS reviews, I guess not. Having liked the Buffalo NAS, I can't wait to see what Thecus is able to accomplish with their W5000 5-Bay premium NAS.
