QNAP TS-419P+ Turbo NAS 4-Bay Network Storage Review
10 January 2011
Excerpt: About six months ago, I started looking into building a Home Theater PC Solution that fit my needs. Seeing I already owned an Xbox 360, and not wanting to build a separate PC, I decided my best route was to look at some type of device that could stream to an Xbox 360 using UPnP. I ran into many roadblocks, some devices did not support a large storage pool, and others were just too expensive.
Excerpt: Until now consumer NAS servers have been stuck in the past. Last year we reviewed the Thecus N4100 Pro NAS server and found that its 500 MHz AMD processor was really holding the transfer speeds back. After looking around it was clear that most consumers NAS servers were all in the same boat, great specifications for the entire NAS except for the processor.
Summary: The QNAP TS-419P+ Turbo NAS is a solid four-bay NAS drive enclosure for SOHO and the home, whose ARM processor makes it more efficient and affordable than the company's Intel-powered large business models.
Conclusion: Preţul destul de mare, aproximativ 2400 lei lângă care trebuie adăugate în medie alţi 600-800 lei pentru câteve HDD-uri decente, fac din QNAP TS-419P+ un NAS cu un preţ prohibitiv pentru utilizatorul casnic, utilizator care sincer nu credem că ar avea nevoie de toate caracteristicile şi dotările din acesta.
Pros: construcţie de calitate, panou frontal cu display LCD, multiple posibilităţi de configurare a HDD-urilor (Single şi RAID), upgrade configuraţie RAID fără a a pierde datele, suită completă de aplicaţii QPKG, reţea dual Gigabit, performanţe decente, construcţie de calitate, panou frontal cu display LCD, multiple posibilităţi de configurare a HDD-urilor (Single şi RAID), upgrade configuraţie RAID fără a a pierde datele, suită completă de aplicaţii QPKG, reţea dual Gigabi...
Cons: preţ, încuietori sertare HDD, USB 3.0, interfaţa de administrare, nu se poate face upgrade la memorie
TEST: Synology DS412+ og Qnap TS-419P II - To gode med plass til fire

Excerpt: Vi ser i utgangspunktet på en NAS som lagring på nettverket – omtrent som en ekstern harddisk koblet til nettverket og som kan aksesseres av flere maskiner/brukere samtidig. Dette gjør at lagringsplassen er tilgjengelig med større fleksibilitet – uavhengig av hvor du befinner deg hjemme eller i bedriften. På de fleste NAS-ene er det imidlertid også god funksjonalitet for å aksessere NAS-en via internett.
