As the performance graphs show the TS 109 Pro is more of a mediocre performer when looking at raw performance. The main factors working towards QNAP’s TS 109 Pro is its lengthy list of features offered. From the pricing point of view, the TS 109 Pro retails at AU$499 (Around US$340) which is significantly high for a single bay NAS device with no hard drive. If QNAP is to compete with other manufactures pricing will need to be reevaluated as you can get 2 bay NAS devices with almost similar features from slightly less.
Other than that, the QNAP TS 109 Pro is a very solid product. It may not be the fastest performing NAS system out there for a single bay device, nevertheless QNAP seems to be putting their bets on more features to win over user acceptance. Since there’s no external cooling fan, the TS 109 Pro runs extremely quiet at a slight cost of producing more heat than normal.
The TS 109 Pro was extremely easy to setup and operate and features like Q RAID 1, Web server, Backup features, Multimedia Server, TwonkyMedia Server are all very impressive which users will certainly enjoy having.
