"With its smaller drives and low-power Intel Atom N270 processor, the Qnap SS-439 Pro Turbo NAS consumes only 18 Watts with all four drives installed, claims Qnap. Aimed at SMB and SOHO users, the SS-439 Pro appears to be similar to the TS-439 Pro Turbo announced in February, except with 2.5-inch drives.

"Like the TS-439 Pro, the SS-439 Pro runs Linux on a 1.6GHz Atom N270, matched with an Intel 945GSE + ICH7M chipset. It offers 1GB of DDR2 memory, as well as a 128MB "disk-on-module" (DOM). The device offers four trays, each of which can hold up to 1.5GB capacity, for 6TB total of hot-swappable storage. It also provides three USB 2.0 ports (two less than the TS-439 Pro) and two eSATA ports for external storage and backup. As with the larger model, the SS-439 Pro offers dual gigabit Ethernet ports that can be configured as failover, load balancing, or serving two different subnets, says the company."
