Workhorse NAS 09/15/2010
This review is from: QNAP TS-259-PRO-US Diskless System Superior Performance NAS with iSCSI for Business
Impressive might be an understatement. I've been using the QNAP TS-259 Pro for several months now (purchased in April 2010) to store all my data files, and without a single problem or hiccup.
I was drawn to this QNAP NAS by the fast transfer rates, great software and low power consumption. Certainly no complaints in this department. My 259 Pro runs for weeks, if not months at a time without any attention whatsoever. The Hitachi drives spin down into sleep mode as expected, further saving power.
I am also impressed with the ease of managing users and folder permissions using the QNAP software. It is so much easier to establish a secure working network compared to the Windows platform. For me that feature alone is worth paying a little extra.
Regarding QNAP customer service, I found it excellent. During initial setup I had some minor trouble. I called QNAP customer service and they were able to connect remotely to my NAS and fix the issue.
My Hitachi drives are a little loud, and this NAS does not do much to shield the noise.
Yes, this line of NAS products costs more than the some others. For me the speed, hardware and software quality, power efficiency and reliability of the TS259-Pro are completely worth the premium.
