I'm often asked about bang for the buck NAS servers. No one wants to pay more for less, so getting a large volume of features, while retaining some volume in your wallet, is universal. When it comes to included features, QNAP takes the cake. QNAP's hardware and software features routinely outrank other products on the market, but the high feature count usually means paying a higher price.
QNAP recently addressed the price discrepancies with the new "L" designated product. You'll find the new low-cost products with an "L" in the model name, replacing the Pro found in similar products. Today we're looking at the QNAP TS-669L, a near replica to the TS-669 Pro.
As you can see in the image above taken from Google shopping, the 669L has a lower cost of ownership when compared to the 669 Pro. Looking over the two spec sheets at QNAP's website, we found only a few hardware differences between these two models. First, the LCD display and buttons for PC-less configuration are removed. In addition, the drive sleds are a bit different - the lower cost 669L does not ship with locking drive sleds. Aside from those features, the 669L is identical to the 669 Pro, according to QNAP's website.
For many, the TS-669L is just what's needed, especially if you have a media center replacement in mind. Without a display, you don't have the distraction when watching movies, and the new media center functions are pretty amazing.
