Qnap TS-409 Pro

  • Excerpt: Is bigger always better? Not necessarily. Qnap’s TS-409 Pro is packed with the same features as the company’s TS-109 Pro but includes twice as much memory and supports four hard drives rather than just one. And it rocks, but only if we compare it to similarly sized foes, such Buffalo’s four-drive TeraStation Live. The TS-409 Pro is the fastest multiple-drive NAS box we’ve tested, producing excellent scores in our read and write benchmarks.
  • Pros: Fastest of the larger NAS boxes; incredibly detailed administrative options
  • Cons: A size upgrade over the TS-109 Pro, and that's it; slower than its predecessor.

A versatile NAS

  • Summary: The TS-409 Pro has a number of features suited to both business and home storage, so it’s a little perplexing trying to figure out its target market. Although the unit’s only distinguishing feature is the somewhat illogical inclusion of RAID-6, its price and basic features are reasonable.
  • Pros: RAID-6 configuration, USB backup, online RAID migration and expansion
  • Cons: No download scheduling, hot-swapping isn’t fast, non-user-friendly Web configuration

QNAP TS-409 Pro Turbo NAS Review

  • Conclusion: There is certainly a lot to like about the QNAP 409 Pro Turbo and it has features that are usually only found on much more expensive devices. Everything about it from its swing open front door to its administration page speak volumes about how good those QNAP engineers are at their jobs. Some other companies could certainly use hint or two from QNAP's user friendly interfaces and with them QNAP has once again proven to be a true leader in the NAS market.
