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
Still there are a few things that have been a little bit of a pain. There is an option that allows you to enable or disable write cache to make read and writes faster on the network. This feature does work quite well after having been tested at a LAN Party with 8 to 12 people accessing the QNAP TS-209 Pro II Turbo NAS all at the same time. However if you do enable this option you need to disable some of the included software in order to get it to work. In the big picture it really depends on how you plan to use your NAS unit.
