For a long time we've been looking for a high quality NAS server to compete on the market with the same speed and abilities as the QNAP and Thecus products. What we've needed to find is a "QNAP-lite" product that allows users to store their data redundantly, allow for high speed file transfers and still use the DLNA protocol to connect to DLNA enabled devices. Many contenders have come and gone, yet all of them have either cost more than they should or performed so poorly that file transfers have taken too long. QNAP and Thecus make great products; sometimes they are too good. It would be very hard for either company to make a high capacity NAS with all of their bells and whistles and still deliver it at under 600 USD.
We've been reviewing ineo Technology products for the last year and been amazed at the price points they've hit with each and every product we've reviewed. At CES ineo told us about their bold plans for an ATOM based NAS server that has a handful of bells and whistles, but has a price point lower than their competition. Today we finally get to see the ineo NA559N Pro 5-Bay NAS and run it through our test lab.
Before you click off the screen thinking that the NA559N Pro 5-Bay NAS is a stripped down unit or one that costs 1000 USD, let me set you straight. The NA559N Pro 5-Bay NAS is a 650 USD NAS with a lot of software extras. The NAS is also very quick, delivering over 100MB/s in some cases of transfer performance on your Gigabit network.
Now that I have your attention, let's take a look at the specs.
