QNAP TS-559 Pro II Network Attached Storage Review  - PCSTATS.com QNAP TS-559 Pro II Network Attached Storage Review
Mon, Sep 05 2011 | 4:03PM | Filed under: Networking| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

If you have been following our reviews here at APH Networks for the last little while, you will notice the same pattern every year. If you know exactly what I am talking about, this means it is now time for yet another QNAP network attached storage review. Case in point: Check out the dates on our QNAP TS-409, TS-439 Pro, and TS-559 Pro+ articles (Actually, it is just a coincidence, haha). While it is not necessarily explicitly planned to have one of these sweet network appliances landing at our Calgary, Alberta location near the beginning of the Fall semester every year, it just happened to be this way, so why break this excellent tradition now? With that in mind, sitting on our racks for testing this afternoon is QNAP's latest 5-bay creation for SMB/corporate applications. Okay, I am going to say "SMB/corporate" very loosely; just because it costs over $1000 at press time, and loaded with every feature IT professionals can possibly dream of, does not mean it is not composed with brilliant cloud multimedia capabilities even casual home users will come to love. Before we move into the meat of our review this afternoon, let me clear up a few things right off the bat. Firstly, for those who are new to the NAS market, why would anyone pay over a grand for a system powered by an Atom processor with 1GB of RAM? Simply put, you are not just paying for the hardware. The user friendly software -- and all the features it comes with -- is where its value stands. Secondly, what is the difference between the new QNAP TS-559 Pro II and the last generation TS-559 Pro+? To be honest, it is not a whole lot. Upgrades include SATA 6Gb/s, two USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports rather than five USB 2.0 ports, and user upgradeable memory. So if you already own a TS-559 Pro+, chances are that you do not need to upgrade. But if are buying a new NAS now, what does QNAP's unmatched reliability, brilliant software, and awesome performance bring to the table today? We will have all the juicy details covered in this review.
