QNAP TS-669 Pro: pricy but good

Perfection in NAS territory: QNAP is getting closer

By


Introduction

Are you looking for a powerful NAS with lots of features? One of your options is QNAP, and if you have limited space but still want to have a lot of drives then the QNAP TS-669 Pro is an interesting option. It's based on the Intel Atom D2700 and equipped with 1 GB RAM, and while it isn't cheap, it's a very fast and comprehensive solution.


QNAP TS-669 Pro

Let's get one thing out of the way. The QNAP TS-669 Pro costs an average of £870, so it's definitely not the cheapest NAS out there. This model is a sibling of the TS-869 Pro (£944), TS-569 Pro (£800) and TS-469 Pro (£672) with room for eight, five and four disks. The price per disk space is as follows: £118 for the TS-896 Pro, £145 for the TS-669 Pro, £160 for the TS-569 Pro and £168 for the TS-469 Pro. None of these are very cheap, but the eight-disk version is £60 than the four-disk one. If you expect your volume to grow quickly in the short term, then investing in the larger version could be worth it.

These devices are aimed at business users or the more demanding home users. Generally speaking, QNAP network drives are typically more expensive than average, but you do get quality in return. For example, the exterior is a sturdy, metal chassis with quality disk trays that will fit both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch disks. Each disks can be individually locked with a key.
