Amazon has the QNAP 4-Bay NAS with SATA 3Gbps, USB 3.0 (TS-469L) for $449.99 shipped. That’s $310 or 41% under the original listing, between around $70 to $220 under the next best prices and the best price we’ve seen.
QNAP NAS servers can be a handy way to store your shared files/assets/videos at home or at the office. It houses an Intel Atom 2.13 GHz Dual-core processor with up to four 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch hard drives or SSDs. You can even “connect a HDTV to the TS-469L via HDMI to enjoy high-definition multimedia content stored on your TS-469L.”
QNAP Turbo NAS servers are a new approach for sharing digital photos, music, and movies/videos, and keeping home computers backed up. You can easily view photos, listen to music, and even watch Full HD 1080p movies on a widescreen TV or projector streamed from the NAS over the network through PS3, Xbox 360, or other network media players.
This model has received a 4.3/5 star rating among Amazon customers. This QNAP does not come with HDDs inside, but WD’s Red drives are specifically designed to handle NAS operation and are very well received among Amazon customers.
We also spotted the Buffalo LinkStation 2-Drive 6TB (2 x 3TB) RAID NAS Personal Cloud Storage and Media Server (LS220D0602) at Woot for $269.99 plus $5 flat rate shipping. That’s as much as $175 under the original listing, $69 better than Amazon and the best price we can find.
