QNAP TS-470 review: a new benchmark

13 January 2014
  • Excerpt: The design of the QNAP TS-470 looks exactly like that of the other QNAP NAS devices we've tested, but looks can be deceiving. Inside, a 2.6 GHz processor is churning away, and with no less than four gigabit ethernet ports this is a NAS powerhouse.

  • Summary: QNAP continues to impress me with their products. The new TS-x70 line is definitely a huge improvement over the older TS-x69 one because of its upgraded hardware components. TS-470's performance then not only smoked the competition, but also all QNAP servers I have tested in the past. I expected a performance improvement with the new generation of NAS servers, but not one as huge as that of the TS-470.
  • Pros: Strong CPU (for a NAS) that can easily handle any task, High network transfer speeds (currently the fastest NAS I have tested), RAM can be easily upgraded, Support for four hot-swap disks, Can scale to 36 HDDs with 144 TB raw capacity (with optional, Highly intuitive administration interface, Tons of features, Rich multimedia capabilities, Supports all popular RAID levels, Four Gigabit ports (with LACP support), Can take a Dual-port 10 Gigabit Network Expansion Card (...
  • Cons: High price, No front USB 3.0 port, Boot and restart time remain long, Warranty should be longer, The trays are not numbered, Slow read speeds at multiple client tests, at least with our equipment

QNAP TS-470 Network Attached Storage

  • Conclusion: As this final thoughts page for my QNAP NAS reviews gets longer and longer every review (Admittedly, I do borrow paragraphs from my past articles, and it kind of accumulates since I almost always add to it), it is nice to approach the conclusion with a different mindset than before. In the past, either I have covered QNAP's products from a business point of view, or a home user point of view. Not anymore. The TS-470 is really the best of both worlds.
