QNAP 269L vs 269 Pro
Hi,

I'm looking at these two variants.

The Pro has lockable drives which I don't need.

CPU speed is 2.13 vs 1.86, so 15% faster.

I wouldn't have thought this would have any noticeable impact on performance.

The most noticeable aspect of NAS performance in my experience is the time from pressing Play to hearing music.

Am I missing anything?

Thank you in advance.

The scale isn't linear (15%). The drive speed will be the slowest denominator but, frankly speaking, you'd be hard pushed to time the difference.

Regards, Mike

RE: QNAP 269L vs 269 Pro
The time from pressing play to start is going to be the buffer time plus next to nothing - hopefully.

Not much

RE: QNAP 269L vs 269 Pro
I bought my 269L a couple of weeks ago and it works like a breeze with MinimServer. I also installed the Lumin software (in addition to Kinsky & HDtracks) on my iPad and find it the most informative of the lot. I did not see the 269Pro when I went on the QNAP site, but if I did, I'd probably buy it as I tend to go for the highest spec processor whenever I buy an NAS. However, I have to say that I have no complaints with the 269L, and with MinimServer, it rescans my files of about two thousand albums in about a minute. In the past on my 259Pro+, a re-scan using Twonky took around ten minutes ! Its also very quite compared to my 459Pro+.

Another consideration is that the 269L is SATA2 and the 269Pro is SATA3.
