Conclusion: Benchmark Reviews believes that manufacturers should be educating consumers with their product packaging, so they can make the most informed decision possible before they make the purchase. This is why we rate the retail package presentation. in terms of the TS-119 Turbo NAS this rating is above average because QNAP has done an excellent job of informing buyers with basic on-the-box specifications and feature information.
Pros: 55.6/33.3 MB/s single-disk read/write performance, Gigabit Ethernet NIC with Jumbo Frame functionality, Rugged black alloy chassis provides durability with elegance, Three total High-Speed USB 2.0 ports available, Frequent firmware development and free software support, Pre-installed PHP+MySQL and Apache web server, Supports convenient USB Copy functionality, eSATA external storage 3.0 GBps connectivity, LED light panel displays basic status information
Cons: Lacks hardware-level data redundancy, Large AC power adapter brick adds to overall footprint, Package includes obsolete CAT-5e Ethernet patch cable
Conclusion: Clearly, QNAP has tucked all of its SMB / SOHO features into a NAS device that's perfectly suitable for at-home users. It's a unique take on a popular product, and frankly, we think it works -- if you're in the target market, that is. All things considered, the TS-119 Turbo Pro is still more of a small business-type device than something a Joe Six-Pack would pick up to store excess photos of his kids, but for prosumers and at-home professionals that can't afford to lose...
Conclusion: The QNAP TS-119 is a pretty impressive NAS mini server, which I can highly recommend for small business users and home enthusiasts who would beneift from a pretty extensive range of features. Some of them are definately aimed towards businesses over the home users as the panels have more of an administrative feel than perhaps a media centre would, but the melding of two user types is handled pretty well.
Pros: Good mesh of business and home features, Looks stylish, Swappable storage
Cons: Outdated manual, Some features are overkill for target market

Excerpt: Product: QNAP TS-119 Turbo NAS Manufacturer: QNAP MSRP: $299.99 Find Lowest Price @ PriceGrabber Author: Nick Date: July 15, 2009 While being a fairly new company, QNAP has quickly established a reputation in the industry for quality NAS products. While most of their NAS solutions tend to be for use in businesses, they also have several products geared towards the home user. Today we will be talking a look at the QNAP TS-119 Turbo, which is one such product.
Excerpt: QNAP TS-119 je nástupcem modelu TS-109, který již v našem hodnocení není. Hlavní rozdíl mezi oběma modely je ve výkonnějším procesoru (1,2 GHz) a větší paměti (512 MB DDR2). Také uživatelské rozhraní bylo změněno. Nově je založeno na AJAXu a je mnohem intuitivnější. Se softwarem QPKG se funkčnost rozšíří (například o MLDonkey - eMule). Výhodou je tichý provoz zařízení a nízká spotřeba energie. Výkon je dostatečný.
Conclusion: Laite myydään ilman kiintolevyä, mikä tekee käyttöönotosta hieman muita työläämpää - ja hintavampaa. Varsikin, kun Qnapin hinta on jo valmiiksi muita kalliimpi. Kiintolevyn asentamisen jälkeen laitteen käyttöönotto sujui ilman ongelmia. Lukun ...
