QNAP TS-869 Pro 8-Bay NAS Review - Benchmarks - HD Playback

When QNAP went high-end last year with 10GbE capability, they left an opening for lower cost units designed for true small office environments. The x69 Series fills that gap while still offering high drive count NAS products, but reduces some of the enterprise features only used in large office environments.

When rolling through the tests we found the 1GB of RAM to sufficient for a single user environment, but later we'll show that the TS-869 Pro as configured from the factory could use a boost in the RAM department.

 

The single drive JBOD results were also low across the board. This was something that caught us by surprise since QNAP products tend to do very well with just a single drive. I would also like to note that this was our second test with the TS-869 Pro.

 

The first time we ran through the unit the performance was down considerably, but after applying the latest firmware updates, the unit sparked to life and became the 100+ MB/s beast you see in the charts today.
