Qnap TS-419P II Pro Reviews

xbitlabs‘s review Edit

The modern ARM platform has proved to be quite appropriate for midrange NASes. It is as good as the x86 platform unless you've got some special software to use or plan to load your NAS very hard. Talking about the particular model, the QNAP TS-419P II is a typical NAS for demanding home and business users. It offers four disk bays for up to 12 terabytes of storage. You can also connect external disks using its eSATA and USB ports. Its two Gigabit Ethernet ports can be used to connect to different networks or to ensure higher bandwidth or reliability. Its data-transfer rate is high for its class. QNAP’s firmware offers a lot of extra features that transform this NAS into a powerful server. The TS-419P II can work as a web or video surveillance server, download files from the Web, stream multimedia files to compatible devices, etc. The recently added features include Syslog and RADIUS servers and an antivirus plugin. The QPKG package management system helps you easily install more packages (email server, content management, blogging and many other systems).

The QNAP TS-419P II Turbo NAS server is more suited for the SOHO environment, but its size, performance and features could certainly fill a spot in the corporate enterprise market. The smaller two drive bay devices included in this test only allow for RAID-0 or RAID-1, and that's not enough for many small businesses, even though it may be all you need for the home office. Before we discuss the pricing in detail, remember that these systems are not discretionary items for most businesses, they are a necessary expense. The inevitable costs for not having a robust data management system in place are 10-100 times higher than any of the prices you will see in this paragraph. As of October 2011 the TS-419P II model was listed at Newegg for $549.99. If you need the wealth of features and the higher RAID performance the top TS-x59 Turbo NAS series provides, and roughly the same amount of storage space, the $959.99 is a possible choice at $959.99. Home users will probably feel more comfortable with the Marvell-based QNAP TS-219P+ at $299.99 for basic tasks.
