Top three mobile application threats

We also tested the TS-219P for DLNA (using a Playstation 3) and Xbox 360 streaming ability. It had no problems delivering media to these consoles, although it did struggle a little when tasked with fast forwarding through a 1080p high definition movie, something many £400+ Nas can handle with ease.

Caddies support 2.5in drives too

Average write speeds, incomplete scheduled on/off functionality and no LCD are the only flaws in the TS-219p’s package, but they’re overshadowed by the extraordinary array of features this device offers. It’s a very capable server – whether you’re hosting web pages or an FTP service – and functions as an excellent in-home Nas for backing up a few computers or streaming films to a Playstation 3 or Xbox 360.

Verdict

An extra £15 will get you the Thecus M3800, which has three drive bays with Raid 5 support and a 1080p HDMI output so you can view media directly on a TV alongside its regular Nas capabilities. But the TS-219P is better value, easier to use and has a more complete interface plus a bounty of software features. The TS-219P has a more comprehensive firmware than any other dual-bay Nas we’ve tested. It’s not the quickest and its power management needs a small upgrade, but Qnap has created a Nas that geeks and layman alike will spend many hours enjoying.
