QNAP TS-509 Pro

techPowerUp!
5 December 2008
  • Summary: The QNAP NAS devices use mostly the same firmware, if you like one you'll like the others. Features that actually separate the models come in the hardware and the (storage) expansion options. We already knew the firmware is easy to use and full of features, there wasn't a doubt there. So what kind of actual improvements does the TS-509 offer? The TS-509 uses far more powerful hardware which improves performance over the previous generation a lot.
  • Pros: High performance, Feature rich, Easy to use, Built-in power supply, Plenty of external connection options, Highly moddable, Configurable without PC
  • Cons: Expensive, Slower with huge files

QNAP TS-509 Pro

ZDNet
3 July 2009
  • Summary: The QNAP TS-509 Pro comes highly recommended — it's a highly flexible NAS with an interface that's gaining usability as time goes on. Its weak point is in its add-ons — the Multimedia and Download Stations could do with a complete rework.
  • Pros: Slick NAS admin UI, Highly featured, SMS alert support, High transfer speeds
  • Cons: Cheap display on the NAS, "Stations" need to be overhauled
