QNAP rolls out TS-410 home NAS

QNAP furthered its push into mainstream network-attached storage on Monday with the TS-410. While resembling its work-oriented drives, the NAS is meant for the home and has built-in DLNA and UPnP servers to share media over a local network, including to the PS3, Xbox 360 or to iPhones and iPod touch devices through an iPhone app. It also brings BitTorrent, FTP and HTTP downloaders to grab files no matter which computers are online.

The drive nonetheless mimics QNAP's more professional models in other features and has four SATA bays that can hold up to 8TB of total storage either as individual drives or in RAID 0, 1, 5, 5+ and 6 arrays. It also has two gigabit Ethernet jacks to better integrate it into a network and allows iSCSI Target service. For expansion, two eSATA connectors and four USB ports can work either to expand the TS-410's storage limit or create a removable backup of the array.

An 800MHz ARM processor and 256MB of RAM prevent heavy network loads from bogging down the NAS, QNAP added. The TS-410 works with Linux, Mac OS X and Windows PCs and ships without pre-installed drives sells for $449.
