QNAP unveils TS-459U-RP NAS device

CeBIT: Also targeting media streaming

QNAP spokesperson Ted Tang talked PC Advisor through the company's updated line of Turbo NAS storage products at CeBIT today, including the four-bay TS-459U-RP, due to launch in the UK in around two weeks.

QNAP's new '59' range of Turbo NAS products - the TS-259, 459, 659 and 859, named after the two, four, six and eight bays they contain - are targeted at business users and feature iSCSI initiators and online RAID capabilities.

QNAP believe the products will be particularly appealing because of their simplicity of use - rather than configuring the devices remotely you can switch between RAID options with a single button.

While the rest of the products in the 59 range are available now, the brand-new TS-459U-RP - the extra letters at the end indicate that it has a redundant power supply for improved data security - will be available in the UK in around two weeks. QNAP estimated that it will cost somewhere in the region of £730.

Tang was also keen, however, to stress QNAP's interest in the multimedia space, showing off the company's new NMP-1000P firmware.

The NMP-1000P media player features an HDMI output and can handle 1080P HD video content. Its format support includes H.264 MKV, FLAC and BDMV. The NMP-1000P also supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD surround audio output and allows you to access Flickr photos and Picasa web albums and play them on your HDTV.
