I’m so very super happy to have received my Helios64 NAS, from Kobol, that I can’t wait to write about it!
I just passed the last two hours assembling the hardware, thanks to their very
well-made and illustrated guide. Some
steps were naturally a bit tedious, like the wiring of the HDD
The case, and all the components, are very well finished metal pieces, except for the disk trays made of nice flashy pink plastic, giving the whole lot a amazing look.
It’s just beautiful!
I’ve not yet power-up the beast, because I did not anticipate that I would need
a micro-SD card for the installation1, and it’s already 9pm, and also mainly
at the IAE!
That means I currently have no idea at all about how the software I’ll put on it will run, and how well it will handle any IO load (it’s an ARM SoC, after all, not an x64 one), but rest assured that I’ll come back here to talk about it.
I’ll now join the ‘verse and leave you with some pictures:

And the front-panel is in place!
