QNAP TS-119 Features

TS-119 Turbo NAS is QNAP's next generation one-bay Turbo NAS with iSCSI, especially designed for small business and home users who are eager for an extremely large storage center to store, back up, share thousands of multimedia files or expand the capacity of their current storage device. Combining the fashionably shiny design, the TS-119 takes the lead in the current small business and home NAS market with the outstanding specifications and performance, powerful all-in-one server features, high stability, and high reliability.

Superior performance with abundant business features
Adopting Marvell 1.2 GHz CPU and large-sized 512MB DDRII RAM, the Turbo NAS maintains superior performance even when there is intensive access to the network services of the server simultaneously. The TS-119 also supports cross-platform service across Windows, Mac, Linux, and UNIX. Enhanced industry-leading features are also provided, e.g. built-in iSCSI target service, unauthorized policy-based IP blocking, instant SMS alert, schedule power on/ off, and two IP cameras for network surveillance.

Maximize the enjoyment of your home multimedia center
The built-in UPnP/ DLNA media server (with TwonkyMedia enabled) of the Turbo NAS supports a wide range of DLNA media players such as Sony PS3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 gaming consoles and works well with NFS-supported High-Definition (HD) DMA for HD video streaming. By installing DLNA/ UPnP application on your iPhone or iPod touch, you can access the Turbo NAS on the local network and play the multimedia contents, e.g. videos, music, and photos on the server. In addition, the high-speed PC-less Download Station with the unique QGet utility enables you to manage the BT/ FTP/ HTTP download tasks remotely over the local network or the Internet. The TS-119 is the ideal multimedia and storage solutions to enhance your home entertainment experience.

No fan design
The fan used inside a device is for the purpose of cooling system, no matter how quiet it is, the fan has to be activated for air ventilation. Somehow, it is inevitable to generate intermittent chirping noise which distracts your work or diminishes your enjoyment. TS-119 adapts no fan design approach by using black aluminum case for thermal dissipation. It provides an absolute quiet working environment for you!!
