QNAP TVS-872XT-i5-16G 8-bay NAS Review


The TVS-872XT comes in a large box with a clear image of the unit on the front. Above the image to the right is a sticker which displays the amount of memory the NAS uses. Under the image there is a line of text describing some of the hardware features of the TVS-872XT.

The rear of the box has a group of icons in the bottom left hand corner representing some of the QTS OS features; Data Protection, Surveillance Station, Mobile Management, Private Cloud, File Sharing and Backup Station.


One side of the box just has a group of transportation icons in the top left hand corner with a SSD/HDD compatibility panel on the bottom. The other side has long line of icons representing the different standards that the device meets.

The box bundle for the TVS-872XT is pretty comprehensive. You get a pair of Gigabit Ethernet cables and a 10GbE cable, and enough fixing screws to secure 3.5in drives into the drive trays should you feel that the tool free system doesn’t hold the drives firmly enough. There's also a bag of screws for fixing 2.5in drives into the bays if you want to go down that route.

A nice touch is the inclusion of a pair of passive heatsinks to aid M.2 drive cooling, while there’s also a quick installation guide.
