    Re: News - QNAP launches TS-210 Turbo NAS, keeps chipping away at NAS pricing

    I'd be interested to know how its performance compares to the Synology DS209 (the 1.2GHz model) as it's a fair bit cheaper but still better than a 266MHz CPU.

    It's got similar specs to my DS207+ so I'd expect ~20-30MB/s read and 15-20MB/s write (assuming gigabit networking).

    Nearly half the price I paid for my DS207+ earlier this year!!

    Er, what RAID modes other than 0, 1 and JBOD could a two-drive NAS support?

    It'd be great if Hexus could review some of these. I'm after a multi-bay NAS but I'm wondering what real-world compromises these cheaper units would bring compared to the gruntier ones.

    Well, that's your lot really. But it would be cool to use LVM to break the disks up into partitions that have their own RAID mode, a bit like Intel Matrix Storage. So for example you have half RAID 0 and half RAID 1.

    Warning to RAID manufacturers: If you don't do it, I will

    hmmm - i'm getting them specs from my 109II (800mhz 256mb RAM) so it must be better than that....

    Doubt it, the CPU/RAM & NIC are the bottleneck, not the 1 or 2 drive nature of it... the 207+ is only a bit slower IIRC.

    Re: News - QNAP launches TS-210 Turbo NAS, keeps chipping away at NAS pricing

    Well, late last night I spotted that SCAN has this and a 1.5TB Samsung Speedpoint on offer in Today Only, so I bought one of the former and two of the latter.

    I'm not that fussed about performance so long as I can get a shell and do some rsyncing - it's going to be quicker than my 266MHz N1200 any road.

    doh! sorry - thought it had the same CPU and RAM as the newer QNAP models (1.2Ghz/512MB) - its still a VERY good buy though taking into account I bought my 109II at the beginning of this year (and now its end of life! ) and costs the same price....

    Can't fault QNAP for their new V3.0 firmware either - its pretty awesome for linux noobs like me

    Re: News - QNAP launches TS-210 Turbo NAS, keeps chipping away at NAS pricing

    Got mine, it's really good. Haven't really tested its throughput yet - need to migrate off my old NAS box first.

    The web UI is very nice, but I stick to SSH most of the time.

    Still, it has a tonne of configuration options and uses next to no power.

    Re: News - QNAP launches TS-210 Turbo NAS, keeps chipping away at NAS pricing

    Just out of curiousity steve - does it have functions for auto-shutdown and auto-startup?

    reason I ask is only the newer devices i.e. 1.2Ghz cpu ones seem to have this function - but no auto-shutdown for the older models

    Yup, this one has scheduled poweroff/on.
