Performance with Debian might be slightly worse because the mainline
kernel doesn't yet have all optimizations that the original vendor
release from Marvell had.  (But this problem also applies if you ran
Debian on the DNS-323 with a mainline kernel.)

I'm away from my TS-209, but hopefully someone else can post some

I'm not sure why the QNAP would be slower than the DNS-323 since the
hardware is quite similar.  In any case, while there are instructions
to run Debian on the DNS-323, there's no official support in Debian
and the installation doesn't use debian-installer but is a manual
