QNAP TS-409 Turbo NAS review

Elite Bastards
25 March 2012
  • Conclusion: QNAP's TS-409 is actually a rather interesting piece of hardware to sum up in review terms, as your reactions to the device will vary quite greatly dependant on what you want from a Network Attached Storage unit. In terms of its administration and web-based interfaces, what QNAP offer here is comprehensive, but personally the interface seemed less user friendly than Synology's equivalent UI.

  • Excerpt: It carries a hefty $600 price tag, but the TS-409 Pro is a sound investment for a home or small business network. For those who need much more than just file storage and backup, this is the NAS to get. In addition to having a central location to store and back up files this product offers hard disk monitoring, FTP, Web, and SMTP server functions, user/group management, and one touch file copy from a USB disk – and that's just scratching the surface!

QNAP TS-409 Pro Turbostation

techPowerUp!
14 June 2008
  • Summary: I have been very positive about QNAPs previous products. Considering the TS409 Pro is near identical to the previous models I used I focused mainly on the changes in this review. Everything I liked before is still there and still works perfectly. The added value comes from the extra disks and RAID levels supported.
  • Pros: Gigabit Ethernet, Very complete set of features, Easy to use, Flexible, expandable via USB or by changing the OS, Data redundancy (via RAID), Hotswappable, RAID migration and expansion, Advanced hardware monitoring
  • Cons: Not the cheapest solution, Struggles under heavy load, No included drives, External non-standard power adapter

QNAP TS-409 Pro 4-Drive SATA Gigabit NAS

Benchmark Reviews
17 March 2008
  • Conclusion: My rating of the overall packaging and presentation is somewhat high, as QNAP has done an excellent job of educating consumers with plenty of box-top information so they can make an informed purchase. I would say the box is aimed toward the informed buyer as the information provided might be a little overwhelming to someone new to NAS servers. I personally like the all business approach to the box information rather than pasting catch phrases all over it.
  • Pros: Very versatile NAS, Excellent Gigabit Ethernet network performance compared to other NAS devices, Multiple options for RAID configurations, Small footprint, small power requirements, Windows ADS compatible, Three USB 2.0 ports for printers, flash drives, hard drives, and other devices., 4 Terabyte storage capacity, Very easy to configure
  • Cons: No eSATA connectivity, May be expensive for home users, not powerful enough for larger corporate users, Slow transfer speeds when dealing with a large number of small files., AC power adapter brick adds to overall footprint, Problems with USB print jobs disappearing

QNAP TS-409 Turbo NAS

OCModShop
24 February 2008
  • Summary: The QNAP TS-409 Pro NAS packs a lot of professional features into a compact little unit. White it may seem rather expensive at first, you must consider that It consolodates several different network appliances into one, thereby saving you money. Not only do you get a file server with tons of RAID configurations, you get a web server, FTP server, print server, backup server, download manager, database server, and flexible media server.
