Everything was going so well for the QNAP TS-419P Turbo NAS. QNAP released the new AJAX interface that gave it a big boost over the competition in ease of use and until now just about every time we compared a QNAP product to a competing Thecus unit, the QNAP has performed better in the benchmarks. You can't win them all you say?
The negative notes don't stop with the performance. The cost of the TS-419P compared to the N4100 is also offset and with this economy the cost weighs more on consumers purchasing decisions than performance. 600 compared to 420 Dollars, the margin of difference is quite large and given an informed choice it is pretty clear which is the better value based on performance per Dollar.
Luckily for QNAP NAS server transfer performance is just one part of the equation. The faster processor and twice the amount of memory will allow users to run more applications on the NAS and also take less of a performance hit when those applications are in use. When it comes to applications QNAP has always delivered a full dose, allowing you to run a web, file and email server right on the NAS. Other applications include Download and Surveillance Station which are both quite useful if you use the features.
When it really comes down to it, I think QNAP dropped the ball with the TS-419P. In a standalone review the TS-419P would have looked like an average performer with a lot of great features, but once the benchmark numbers were laid out it appears that QNAP needs to look for ways to optimize the programming to work with the new Marvel processor.
UPDATE: TweakTown had the opportunity to inquire about the performance numbers of the new TS-419P. In our conversations it was revealed that QNAP engineers are hard at work optimizing the source code for the Marvell processor and the next firmware release will include these optimizations that increase both read and write performance.
QNAP also wanted to be mention that the Marvell chipset is designed for multiple concurrent accesses and provides for a very stable NAS platform.
