Longer bars are better

We witnessed some slightly odd idle figures, as it would occasionally draw between 15W and 23W before dropping down to 9.8W again. We couldn’t explain regularly power spikes, especially since the noise produced was consistently low throughout our tests.

The closest competitor to the TS-219P in our tests is the Thecus M3800, which costs around £15 more. Although the Qnap loses out to the Thecus on raw performance, it does a better job on power consumption.
