Specifications, Availability and Pricing
With a 1.66GHz dual core Intel Atom QNAP has positioned the TS-459 TurboNAS at the upper end of the SMB NAS appliance market. To call the 459 an appliance is really an understatement since the new hardware moves the performance of the NAS deeply into NAS server territory. I think you will agree once we get into testing since in small office environments the transfer rates are nearly equal to those found on the flagship 8-drive TS-809.
Many of the same hardware features found on the TS-809 are also found on the new TS-459 that we are reviewing today. Dual eSATA and dual gigabit Ethernet are really just the start; other features like 5 USB 2.0 ports, one with a hardware quick button for easy backup are included as well as the LCD display that allows for easy front panel configuration.
When it comes to the cost, we found that you will have to pay a premium for the QNAP TS-459 TurboNAS. Newegg had the NAS listed at 899.99 for a short while, but it's currently showing an empty inventory. But you won't have issue finding it for the same price elsewhere. This is a full 200 USD more than what the TS-419P was when tested, but the TS-459 is a significant upgrade. QNAP does offer another new model that is capable of using up to four drives and has a reduced cost, the TS-439 TurboNAS. If you are not comfortable installing drives and configuring a new NAS for your network, we have recently learned that AVADirect offers free configuration of NAS products when purchased from the company. They list the AVADirect QNAP TS-459 TurboNAS on their configuration website already.
