Very nice review Nemo....

Looks like a very nice NAS box and especially full feature packed...only thing I dont like it the price...

add 5 drives and you'd be $1,300.00 easily...ouch

There's a lot to like about the unit, but the price puts it squarely in the enterprise sector unless a home user has some pretty serious storage needs that requires the extra features like hot spare, and RAID 5/6 arrays. The performance is definitely one of the best out there.

I'm working on a review now of another NAS server that's targeted at the home user with some of the features of the TS-509, but at less than half the cost. Performance-wise it won't touch the TS-509 but it should be sufficient for most home users.
