NAS QNAP TS-469 Pro Review

Contemporary network storage units have already undergone the evolution era, and nowadays new emerging models do not differ so much from their predecessors. This basically touches upon external integration and major functional. Still, hardware and software layout is constantly changing, offering more advanced, more efficient, and more comprehensive facilities. QNAP has recently launched a series of four-disk stations, with TS-469 Pro model leading the series.



Design and Integration


NAS QNAP TS-469 Pro is based on a steel frame. The casing is made of dark aluminum, while the frontal panel is made of black plastic. The larger part of this panel features a bay for the HDD installation; HDD bay consists of metallic frames and external plastic straps.

HGST Announces Corporate-Class Ultrastar C10K1800 Hard Drives

Despite the emergence of ultra-fast and voluminous SSD devices, data processing centers still require classical storage solutions. Hence, HGST, an affiliate company of Western Digital, decided to comply with the corporate demands by introducing budgetary hard drives entitled Ultrastar C10K1800. The new-comers are targeting exactly DPC-systems which are in need of high performance combined with fail-safe behavior.



HGST Ultrastar C10K1800 drives feature 2.5-inch form-factor and come in diverse capacity variations (from 300 GB to 1.8 TB). The models employ SAS interface with 12 Gb/sec throughput. It should be noted that designers involved the minimal amount of plates on the maximal possible tape density. The latter are thought to rotate with 10.520 RPM.


The implementation of only few plates provides for the reduction of power consumption; this is supposed to be a great benefit since the drives are estimated for a durable 24/7 operation. Thus, an average power consumption …

Sharp Promises to Start Selling Its PN-K321 Betimes

Official announcement of a new professional monitor from Sharp earlier in November grasped all analysts and customers into anticipation. This was dictated by the fact that PN-K321 (the codename of a new model) was claimed to employ IGZO semiconductors in their framework. The implementation of IGZO technology implied the launch of a product with a really high resolution. Sharp managed to successfully introduce this technological 'know-how' into its monitor and claimed the maximal resolution for PN-K321: 3840x2160.



Sharp PN-K321 features 32-inch display with 16:9 aspect ratio. It is known to support Ultra HD format that is still rarity in this segment. The display is based on IGZO semiconductors that are a combination of indium, gallium, oxide and zinc. They ensure wide viewing angles and brilliant color rendering. Brightness index is recorded at 250 cd/m2.


The model accommodates two built-in stereophonic speakers, the overall power of which equals to 4W, 3.5 mm audio slot, …
