Rock Solid

Derek M., Newegg
30 November 2014
  • Summary: I have had this product for more than a year. I own several different Nas'. I own Qnap, Synology, NetGear (formally Readynas), Thecus. This unit is very feature rich and has been really stable.
  • Pros: OS is stable Wide variety of apps hardware runs smoothly No compatibility issues with Mac's, Windows, nor Linux machines
  • Cons: Little bit of a learning curve for all the options in OS A tad expensive Not as many memory upgrade options as other NAS

file format support problems solution.

Brandon Stone, Amazon
7 October 2014
  • Summary: I own a qnap but not this model. To those complaining about video format support it is very limited yes, but it does have a built in time converter you can run manually on files. And for a massive file range support try installing Plex from the app center.

Not a good choice for vmware iscsi

Richard T., Newegg
3 September 2014
  • Pros: With new software the SSD cache feature is nice. Lots of additional QNAP applications can be installed.
  • Cons: Known issues for years as an iscsi target for vmware hosts. Works fine with windows. Reboots often and very specific hard drive requirements.

Good, but needs improved cooling.

sawdust, Amazon
7 August 2014
  • Summary: This it takes a few days when first setting up if you are using 5 TB drives, as I was, before you can access the Storage Management function. The cooling capability is less then ideal, the drives are cooled unequally. The ambient temperature needs to be less than 75 degrees F.

iSCSI - DONT BUY THIS

Richard T., Newegg
5 April 2014
  • Pros: Firmware 4.1 now supports SMB3.0 - However it still does not support Hyper-V 2012 R2 virtual machines over SMB
  • Cons: The iSCSI functions on this device are terrible. And since you can not use the SMB function either for hyper-v 2012 R2, this device is not viable for virtualization. IF you search the QNAP support forums, you will find a luandry list of issues with iSCSI when the device is under load.

works as advertised

Prof. C., Newegg
4 September 2013
  • Pros: We use it only as an off-site BACKUP machine in a well known US university. I bought 10 seagate 4TB disks and format in RAID 6. I turned off most of the manufacturer features and installed a solid rsync package from Ipkg-Optware (look inside the Application.QPKG menu). I was able to make a cronta...
  • Cons: The software is a little slow.. I would prefer having a machine with more than 150MB of flash so I can install more features inside.

Over two thousand dollars and still disappointing...

Eternal Vigilance, Amazon
20 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought this 10-bay server and loaded it with 10 4TB Hitachi 7200 RPM hard drives... It was easy to install the hardware and easy to learn the software mechanics (never owned a NAS before but I am moderately computer literate)...

Beast...

Isaac K., Newegg
2 January 2012
  • Summary: Completely irrelevant: It reminds me of a giant macbook air in desktop form, If it had a DVD drive, i'd use this as personal computer...
  • Pros: The thing is awesome, we keep this in a frat house and everyone (26 people) shares their music, photos, and projects here at IADT. Currently have five 1.5TB installed and close to half the storage open.
  • Cons: A tad expensive but you definitely get what you paid for.
