After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
The TS-209 Pro II Turbo NAS is a mainstream product geared toward the home user or someone who runs a small business network. The NAS is realtivly small and only supports 2 SATA hard drives. 2 drives will limit your RAID options since a 3rd drive is required for an sort of parity but still for most small business to home users this is not a problem.
