Honestly, if we could just put a GeForce in the NAS we would have a very capable gaming system. The TS-809 Pro uses a Core 2 Duo running at 2.8GHz. In the hardware world we would consider this an E7400. This high level of processing power gives the NAS blazing fast speed and makes it capable of being able to run application after application without the need to turn features off. The 2GB of RAM that is included with the base system is also hearty enough to run applications and have enough in reserve to aid in RAID 5 and RAID 6 write operations.
The 128MB Flash Memory is essentially a solid state drive that holds the operating system and boots the TS-809 Pro Turbo NAS very quickly. When it comes to storage the NAS houses eight SATA HDDs with a capacity of up to 2GB each. That leaves us with 16GB of data storage in RAID 0, but RAID 5 or RAID 6 would be more useful for the target audience and as we will see later in the review there is no performance penalty for using advanced RAID arrays.
With Cap and Trade on the horizon here in the U.S. businesses and home users alike are starting to worry more about power consumption. The TS-809 only uses 41 watts when sleeping and that number doubles when in operation mode. This is much less than a single PC.
The NAS has a small footprint that we will look at in detail later in this article. A rack mount model is also available, called the TS-809U-RP.
