QNAP TS-809 Pro Turbo NAS Review

11 May 2010
  • Conclusion: In terms of performance, the TS-809 Pro Turbo didn't just meet our expectations, it crushed them. The throughput was incredible and its sustained transfer speeds of over 100MB/s meant this device is in a class of its own, even when compared to Synology's highest performance SOHO NAS devices like the DS409+ . With a starting price of $1,700 it's obvious the TS-809 Pro Turbo is not intended for home users, at least not any with standard kind of needs.

QNAP TS-809 Pro

4 January 2010
  • Conclusion: For an enterprise NAS, the TS-809 Pro delivers exceptional performance of 80MB/s read and 180 MB/s write transfer rate in the Iozone tests. What is more impressive is its consistent performance across different RAID configurations. The real world tests represented by the Intel NAS Performance Tool Kit also show excellent results. The only place where the TS-809 Pro seems to fall slightly behind is writing files to the NAS under RAID 1 configuration.

  • Excerpt: Well, after reviewing another QNAP product I can honestly say they haven’t let me down yet. If several terabytes of storage and a ton of features are what you need, than the TS-809 Pro NAS will have your business network covered both now and in the future. The eight drive bays combined with robust processing power and a much improved interface provide reliable storage and a host of other server functions for up to 512 network users.

QNAP TS-809 Pro Network Attached Storage Device Review

14 July 2009
  • Summary: Benchmarking For some quick benchmarks, I tested SMB and NFS reads and writes. I setup the unit with four 80 GB SATAII 7200 RPM hard drives in RAID5. They were formatted with Ext4 and did not use encryption. A 6.1 GB file was transferred from my computer’s hard drive through its gigabit Ethernet interface to a Dell gigabit switch and on to the TS-809 Pro through its dual gigabit Ethernet interfaces.
