QNAP SS-839 Pro Turbo NAS Shrinks Mega RAID to Notebook SizesS

The QNAP SS-839 Pro Turbo NAS is the smallest 8-bay networked attached storage solution on the market. In fact, it's just a hair larger than a 7-inch cube.

How is it so tiny? The SS-839 uses 2.5-inch SATA drives instead of the clunky 3.5s you find in desktops (and most NAS systems).

But beyond its compact 4TB capacity, the SS-839 features plenty of performance enhancers, like a low-voltage Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and 2 eSATA ports along with 5 USBs. Fully loaded with 8 hot-swappable hard drives, the system sips on just 34W—a handy side effect of its netbook/notebook components.

There's no word on pricing yet, but QNAP has more networking specifics over at their site. [QNAP and BW]
