Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Right off the bat, the biggest selling point for the ineo I-NA559N Pro 5-Bay is the price. At 649.99 USD from Newegg you are still spending a lot of money, but to put the price in comparison to units we normally look at, the QNAP TS-559 Pro+ costs 1,087 USD at the time of writing. Both have 5 bays, both deliver over 100MB/s over a Gigabit network, but the QNAP has a very refined software / firmware package.
The QNAP has a few other little goodies as well like dual Gigabit Ethernet, an established software add on collection and a name that is considered the best in the industry. The ineo has a single Ethernet port, high speed data transfers and an easy, yet no frills software collection.
When it comes to NAS appliances, users are always going to get more features than they need. These are basically small computers with enough processing power to be used as a desktop and to be honest, most are more powerful than your work notebook. Many users really only want their NAS to hold their data securely and to play that data back to their TV, PC, PS3, Xbox and so forth when asked to do so. The ineo I-NA559N Pro 5-Bay can do all of those things and more. It can do it at a very attractive price as well.
When it comes to the hardware, the ineo NAS uses an Intel Atom processor and 1GB of DDR2. ineo plans to offer 3, 4 and 5 bay systems, but today we are looking at the 5-bay model. Our 5-bay has all of the RAID array options that a consumer could ask for. Even though RAID 6 is offered, I think most users will opt for RAID 5 since you get more storage space and still retain a 1 drive lead before disaster.
