QNAP TS-259 Pro Turbo NASMar 2nd, 2010 | By Simon
Good things come in small packages and the QNAP TS-259 Pro is exactly that. You shouldn’t be fooled by the small footprint. Packed inside this small chassis is a very powerful dual core Intel Atom processor with 1GB of memory. The result is a powerful server capable of RAID 1 performance with little overhead loss or a lightning quick RAID 0 configuration. If you’re strictly concerned about numbers, the TS-259 Pro will easily put up 100MB/s+!
The high performance of the TS-259 Pro Turbo NAS device doesn’t come cheap. Currently priced at just under $600 without any hard drives, it literally is the price of a small computer. However, you get much more. On top of the high performance hardware, you get the software suite included by QNAP. With all the basic file serving needs under its belt, QNAP has also expanded its capability in providing iSCSI, Virtual Disk Drive, Cloud Storage backup and most recently VMWare ready. Regardless, for those who want the best then the TS-259 Pro is the way to go.
- Very powerful with Intel Atom processor
- No significant performance loss with any RAID 1
- Quick file transfers
- Flexible design, lots of software options available
- Not the most affordable 2 drive NAS
Thank you QNAP for making this review possible.
