QNAP TS-439 Pro Turbo NASAug 25th, 2009 | By Simon
Manufacturer: QNAP System Inc.
Quality Network Appliance Provider defines QNAP’s mission statement and they’ve lived up to those standards by offering what they believe to be the best Network Attached Storage (NAS) and Network Video Recorder (NVR) devices. They have well over fifty products in these two categories; some companies aren’t even able to claim they have a total of fifty products let alone in two categories. What’s more surprising is that QNAP has only been around since 2004, making it probably one of the fastest growing and most respected network appliance providers.
In my last review I had the opportunity to take the TS-809 Pro out for a spin; this was QNAP’s biggest NAS in their lineup. With space for eight hard drives, small is an understatement. Not everyone has the kind of money to spend on the TS-809 but for those still looking at getting lots of additional storage space as well as a few extra bells and whistles not found in the TS-809, feast your eyes on the TS-439.
The TS-439 is powered by an Intel 1.6 GHz processor, sports 1GB of DDRII memory to delivery mind-blowing RAID 0/1/5/6/5+Spare/JBOD performance. Best of all, it has several USB and eSATA ports for future growth.
