QNAP TS-209 Pro review: Mini-server or NAS? You decide!

Posted by SmallNetBuilder

Last year, when we did a review of the TS-101 from QNAP, we found it to be a powerful little NAS with a few drawbacks, the main one being limited availability in the US. Now, a year later, QNAP has improved their US distribution channels, and has come out with the TS-209 Pro Turbo Station, a higher-end unit geared more toward business users than home users.

Instead of being single-disk based like the TS-101, the TS-209 Pro supports dual hot-swappable drives and adds a number of high-end features. In this review, I'll check out the new capabilities and see how well QNAP's "Pro" line stacks up to similar units we've reviewed recently.
