Introduction

QNAP TS-119 Turbo NAS

At a Glance
Product QNAP Turbo NAS (TS-119)
Summary Latest, faster version of QNAP's single-drive BYOD NAS powered by Marvell's Kirkwood processor
Pros • Many features including full LAMP webserving
• Fast attached backup to USB and eSATA drives
• High performance
Cons • Relatively expensive

A pile o' NASes has hit the ol' SmallNetBuilder lab of late and I'm trying to work my way through them before the backlog gets too big. QNAP sent their TS-509 Pro for an oft-requested retest on the new test platform as well as its Intel Atom-powered TS-639 Pro. But I grabbed the TS-119 first because, being a single-drive NAS, the test time would be short.

The 119 replaces the TS-109 Pro II as QNAP's fastest single-drive NAS. In keeping with QNAP's one-OS-fits-all approach, the 119 has the same feature set as its predecessors and is housed in the same aluminum, fanless chassis that is differentiated only by its all-black color. Figure 1 shows the indicators, controls and ports, which include an eSATA connector for speedier backups to attached drives in addition to two rear and one front-mounted USB 2.0 ports.

The 119 draws only 15 W when active and 7W with its drive spin-down option (settable for 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 and 60 minutes) kicked in. You also have a shutdown / startup / restart schedule that you can set for further power savings.

Internal Details

Figure 2 shows the bottom of the TS-119's board, which I knew was based on the Marvell "Kirkwood" 88F6281 clocked at 1.2 GHz, with 512 MB of DDR2 RAM and 16 MB of flash. A Marvell 88E1116R is used for the Gigabit Ethernet port and an Alcor AU6254 4 port USB 2.0 hub provides the three USB 2.0 ports.

The top side of the board is mainly occupied by the hard drive, which slides into a board-mounted SATA power / data connector.
