Anytime you are able to get over 100 MB/s transfer speed over Ethernet you are really flying. The QNAP TS-809 Pro Turbo NAS is able to achieve this magic number in several of our tests and more times than the closest competitors leading product, the Thecus N7700 Pro.
When comparing the two flagship products side-by-side the QNAP wins many of the categories; data transfer performance, interface ease of use, capacity (8 drives verses 7 with the N7700), features and hardware specifications. One area that is going to hurt QNAP in this battle is the cost. The QNAP TS-809 Pro Turbo NAS costs 1699 USD, but the Thecus N7700 is only 939.99 USD. Newegg carries both. Obviously the QNAP has a large advantage over the Thecus, as mentioned earlier, but the price difference may be hard to swallow for some when compared to the competition. I do have to admit that the TS-809 TS is a bargain when compared to similar NAS servers from other manufacturers.
The improved specs for the TS-809 Pro as well as the price makes it well suited for larger user groups. The 4GB of memory that comes installed in the unit from the factory makes the TS-809 run smoother in these large user groups and the N7700's 1GB would obviously reach a wall sooner.
