For a comparison today we're using the QNAP TS-419 II, a unit we debuted in our To Hell with Their Cloud, Build your Own Today article. We managed to find the TS-419 II online for $473 shipped so the QNAP model costs a bit less than the Thecus N4800 we're reviewing today.

 

As you can see in the HD Playback chart above, the extra money spent on the N4800 goes a long way in the performance category. Across the board the N4800 outperforms the TS-419 II in HD playback ability. In some cases we see the N4800 doubling the bandwidth of the TS-419 II when both units use a single gigabit ethernet connection to the switch.

 

This is the typical network configuration used in most small and home offices.
