TerraMaster Updates TOS 5 With New User Interface

TerraMaster are well known for their NAS products, and we should know, we’ve tested a few of them here at eTeknix! However, now they’ve released a major update to the TOS 5 system. This update sees the rollout of a new User Interface (UI) design, making it 300% more responsive (their numbers, not mine) compared to the previous version. The updated lighter and smoother TOS 5, with the new UI, offers an easier and improved user experience. The new TerraMaster TOS 5 system with redesigned UI will be available for global beta testing in March 2022. So if you’re eager to test it, you won’t have long to wait; only 12 days!

I’ve actually just ordered a 5-bay NAS of theirs, and we’ll have that in for review in the coming weeks, so this really could time out any better!

Aside from the redesigned UI, the updated TOS 5 system features a new caching technology that will speed up data transfer between server and database. This resulted in a significant improvement in response time by up to 300% compared to the previous version.

Using progressive JavaScript language, TOS 5 has a more lightweight framework. The updated TOS 5 also uses WASM to optimize the calculation method and execute the back-end complex calculations on the front-end. This allows the system to better support high concurrent users faster and smoother. Anything that reduces overhead on the CPU and gives more to the user is always good on a system like this!

Intuitive and User-Friendly

The new UI design is now compact and intuitive making it easier to navigate and familiarize. The status bar has been optimized to provide information clearer. Pop-up windows and buttons are also redesigned and optimized and command buttons are placed in intuitive locations. All of these changes are designed to create a more user-friendly UI.


The visuals of the improved TOS 5 UI features a more coordinated page style, consistent font height, better menu navigation, and uses simple and elegant colours. Users can customize wallpaper and login pages to add a personal touch.

Improved Security

The new TerraMaster TOS 5 features two-factor authentication aside from passwords that double security to avoid errors. Errors and wrong inputs also prompt alerts to administrators to prevent more errors.

Improved Self-Help Feature

Self-help has been improved in the new TOS 5. The Help menu now contains a simplified introduction and guide to the TOS system. It also provides easy access to the online TerraMaster service centre where users can find an assortment of self-help materials including installation and use manual, video guides, software downloads, the forum section, and more.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
