The QNAP viewing area was full of products ranging from Network Attached Storage devices to Network Surveillance systems.

The TS-101 Turbo Station NAS Server features support for a single SATA 1.5Gb/s or 3Gb/s drive, three USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, and a 1.5Gb/s e-SATA port. The unit also features real-time or scheduled backup ability along with Block Level remote replication capability.

The TS-201 Turbo Station NAS Server has the same features and capabilities of the TS-101 except it supports dual drives along with RAID 0, 1, or JBOD.

Similarly, the TS-401T Turbo Server is a four bay unit targeting the growing SMB enterprise market. The unit supports SATA hard drives; dual Gigabit Ethernet ports with fail-over, load balancing, and standalone settings; dual USB 2.0 ports; remote IP settings and optional hot redundant power supply, to name just a few options.

QNAP has leveraged their storage expertise into a full line of network surveillance products. Once of the more interesting ones we viewed was the VioStor-220 four channel network video recorder. The unit has a built-in 8-port 10/100 Mbps switch, can monitor 4 network cameras at once via IE browser, and is a 5-in-1 solution with Network Video Recorder, Firewall, Router, Print Server and NAS capabilities.

    I've seen blurbs like this before for the F5000 ... Question still remains though ... what video system will be used? I'd love to see a 7900 GS or GTX in there. Reply

    That very last paragraph was worth the entire article! But thanks for the extra coverage too. ;)

    Don't forget to throw in some 32bit vs 64bit comparisons, since some benches are showing Conroe is finally delivering some on that potential 64bit advantage! I'm very much wondering if Vista x64 will show the same advantages over Vista x86... especially considering that the former is 4.1gb and the latter is a 3.1gb file size when I downloaded them both...

    BTW, need some extra security for your luggage? I'll even offer my services for free... :D

    That MR5S1, does it just plug into any old eSATA port if you get the SATA option? Seems like a sweet setup to get any RAID configuration you want, and I assume high performance using a hardware controller. How much is that gonna cost? A 3-bay unit seems like a good option they should have too, instead of only the 1, 2 and 5 bay units in the picture. 3 bays seems like just the right point for a user who wants high performance without quite going all the way to 5 drives, and it'd be a good size to hide away. Anybody else make similar products? Reply

    Is that a heat piped HS I see? Reply

    It is. I tried to get a close up with the display case open but no go. In fact, a couple of the OEM/ODM power supply manufacturers prohibted close up pictures of their products. It was strange to me as they were happy to provide brochures with bascially the same screenshots I wanted to take.

    Would be interesting to see how it was designed, every single watercooled PSU I've seen for example puts the primary (230VAC) and secondary (12DC and lower) diodes and mosfets on the same heatsink. They are only shielded by a thin thermal pad... So if something goes wrong there is high risk of 230VAC on the Secondary side, you can guess the effect on the computers components...

    Simple test; take a digital multimeter and set it to AC and measure from the chassi to the primary heatsink, on most designs you will read 160VAC... Now guess what would happen if you connected that heatsink to the other, and then imagine that the watercooled PSU I taked about above only prevents the short with a thin thermal pad...

    Sure looks so... I still do not understand why they have the cover on these units at a tradeshow...

    But it is probably to not reveal that they all use crap capacitors, everyone except Zippy and Seasonic (select models) use crap capacitors so...

    Guess it's good for business when your products only hold togheter for 3 years and then start giving the computer random lockup problems due to too much ripple current being let through?!

    Actually all of Zalman’s PSUs are built by Forton-Source, so their definitely one of the better ones out there. Reply

    Yup, that is right, it is an excallent design, however it such a shame that they have to spoil it with OST and Capxon capacitors :( Reply
