Cons: Marvell 88F6282 system controller has to work pretty hard, No USB 3.0 ports available on TS-x19P+ models, Write performance might slow down backups, Some capabilities will be too daunting for a novice SOHO user, Many consumer HDDs not suitable for drive arrays, enterprise units are $$$
Conclusion: The Qnap TS-219P is a powerful and extremely useful little NAS box, it won’t take up much space or make a lot of noise, but it will allow you to do things over your network that you’ve only dreamed of. It’s certainly much more than a backup device… The interface is very nicely down and easy to navigate for even the most novice of user. Anyone can have the Qnap TS-219P up and running on their network in a matter of minutes really.
Pros: Quick and easy setup, Nicely designed and well made, Quiet, Easy to use for even the novice user, Extremely useful, Can be enhanced with add-on packages
Cons: Might be considered expensive by some, A bit slower than others (could be due to the 2.5″ drives access times)
