Hardware Specifications and Pricing
Modern NAS servers have moved beyond data storage through a wire network. In order to get the most out of a NAS you need to look at the extra I/O hardware and the mountain of potential software features.
As we mentioned in the introduction, the QNAP TS-669L has the same hardware and software features as the much more expensive TS-669 Pro, other than the display and locking drive sleds. At the heart of the NAS is an Intel Atom 2.13GHz dual-core processor that's fed by 1GB of DDR3 RAM. Over the last several months we've seen the 2.13GHz Atom in a number of NAS products, and it's become the standard for SOHO / SMB products.
The TS-669L has a number of I/O ports for connectivity. To the network, you have two gigabit Ethernet ports that can run teamed or deliver storage on two separate networks. The unit also has dual USB 3.0 ports as well as five USB 2.0 ports. Two eSATA ports on the back of the NAS also extend the storage capacity that starts with six HDD bays.
The QNAP TS-669L also has a new feature that you may not associate with NAS products, an HDMI port for A/V functions. NAS HDMI was introduced nearly a year ago at Computex 2012, but it took the NAS makers a little time to program quality software for it. Now your NAS can play movies, music and pictures on your TV, just like a standalone media player or media center. QNAP sells an optional remote control, but you can also use your Android or iOS device as a remote to control the onscreen media functions. These functions built upon the other smartphone / tablet software packages that work to monitor or control QNAP NAS functions.
After an extensive search on Google shopping, we found the QNAP TS-669L available for as little as $780 in the US at the time of writing, which is roughly $200 less than the TS-669 Pro.
