Wendy, who has used the QNAP TS-453 Mini for more than six years, is quite satisfied with the long-term stability of the machine in service and the continuous update of the system. In fact, she has not realized the potential of the TS-453 Mini in personal daily use. I received an invitation to try QNAP TS-130 this time, just to experience the entry-level product. I want to see if the entry-level product meets my needs.

QNAP TS-130 Unpacking Introduction

First, unpack the QNAP TS-130 machine. The contents of the box are quite simple, including: the machine itself, the transformer and the power cord, two sets of screws for the hard disk, a network cable, and a simple installation manual.When unpacking the box, several thoughts came to mind:

  • The upright host is simple in appearance and does not take up space. It is very suitable for the living room or personal room at home. The aqua blue tone is also a pleasing choice acceptable to both men and women, but there is currently no other color choice.
  • The transformer maintains the tradition of the Taiwanese brand. It is always accompanied by a ugly black and large transformer, which saves cost but does not match the host at all. You can only convince yourself to put it behind the machine or cabinet, usually you can't see it!
  • There are two installation options and screws for 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch hard drives, which can provide users with flexibility in installation. However, in terms of the use of NAS machines, choosing a 3.5-inch hard drive is a natural and cost-effective choice.

Suggestions for initial startup settings

Although the TS-130 is a NAS with only one hard disk, the system functions are the same, and it provides many useful APP applications. The disadvantage is that users have to have basic knowledge of the NAS and cannot be plugged in and used like a portable hard disk. , This is the threshold that must be crossed when a novice is on the road.

During the initial installation, after plugging in the power and the network cable and turning on the NAS, you can scan the QR Code on the manual with your mobile phone, automatically open the browser and enter the official website, you can follow the instructions to start the setting, in the wireless network environment at home, The machine can be easily searched, and it can be easily set with a mobile phone.

Suggestions for troubleshooting of initial settings

When Wendy used her mobile phone to set up, she encountered the situation that the system continued to cycle through the settings and could not confirm whether the settings were successful. After changing the English interface to the traditional Chinese interface in the upper right corner, she successfully set the QNAP ID and logged in to the system screen for everyone. See for reference.

If you are always facing problems with your mobile phone, it is recommended to download the Qfinder Pro software directly from your computer and install it. Then you can directly use the software to search for the NAS machine and start setting it up. I believe it will be easier to operate and set up the NAS with a computer.

Recommended steps for newbies on the road for the first time

As mentioned earlier that the NAS is not a flash drive, you must do some initial settings before you start using it. Fortunately, after logging in to the NAS backend interface, you can click the "!" notification panel in the upper right corner, and the three important steps of initial settings will be displayed:

  1. Create storage space: This is the most important first step. The storage pool and volume must be created first. Even if the NAS has only one hard drive, it must be set up before you can start using the NAS.
  2. Create or log in QNAP ID: Create an account on the NAS management interface or official website. After logging in, you can use the remote access function. Otherwise, you can only use it in a wired or wireless network environment at home.
  3. Set the security level: After logging in to the myQNAPcloud service with QNAP ID, you can access the data of your home NAS wherever there is a network, which is convenient and convenient, and you also need to pay attention to security.

In principle, you can start using the NAS as long as you set the storage pool and volume in the first step. The second and third steps are purely convenience and security considerations.

Software mall that leverages application potential

I believe that everyone can download all kinds of useful and fun apps for the mobile app store, whether it is the iOS App Store or the Android App Store. QNAP also has its own App Center, which provides backup, entertainment, download, monitoring, business, etc. All types of applications can be downloaded for free.

If you have set up a QNAP ID to log in remotely, you can download Qmusic, Qvideo, Qphoto and other audio-visual software with your mobile phone, and access your own personal audio-visual files at any time. It is also strongly recommended to download the Qfile application, which can centrally backup and manage various 3Cs in your hands. Product information can be shared across devices and platforms.

Recommended for beginners

TS-130 is an entry-level product. There is only one hard disk space inside. The initial investment and management burden is small. It is very suitable for beginners to get started. In the future, you can also expand the hard disk box with an external USB to expand the storage space flexibly according to your needs. , Or after you understand your needs, buy other mid-range NAS products, and the hard drive can continue to be used if it is not broken.

If it meets the following user group characteristics and is not very familiar with NAS products, then it is highly recommended to buy a TS-130 to get started:

  • Heavy users of 3C products: With various devices such as mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers, they can centrally manage data, and use different devices to access data anytime, anywhere, and watch them on smart TVs at any time.
  • People who like to take photos and videos: mobile phones, cameras, and even GoPros are always full of photos and videos. The capacity of mobile phones is always insufficient, and the space of cloud disk is not enough, and large-capacity hard disk storage and backup are needed.
  • Those who love audio-visual entertainment: They have a lot of video and music transcoding data on hand, and need large-capacity storage space. They hope to be their own cloud audio-visual streaming service, which can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere without device restrictions.

In addition, if you have friends who have the same kind of education as you have the same preferences as yourself, QNAP provides the function of sharing with your friends, so you can persuade everyone in your surroundings to buy one, share the files you have collected with each other, and further exert unity. The true meaning of power!

Future upgrade strategy for private cloud

QNAP Technology is one of the world's leading manufacturers of consumer NAS products. The QTS operating system used by TS-130 is a self-developed operating system based on Linux. The system is maintained very diligently and frequently provides updates. Long-term use is absolutely no problem. , Wendy even feels that there are too many updates sometimes, which is a bit annoying!Haha, in Oke's upper body...

After the above introduction and sharing, if you are interested in starting to use NAS to build your own private cloud space, then QNAP TS-130 is a pretty good entry-level product.In fact, the price of the NAS machine itself is not high. The most expensive investment comes from the hard disk. Start with the small NAS first. In the future, you can expand the hard disk according to actual needs.
