Summary: This NAS is the business Bought mine new in 2013 aware QNAP have retired this model with more powerful replacements . . . ... however it is still fairly powerful and able to handle the latest 4TB HDDs ...
Summary: I bought this item in 2011. After more then a year of use I can tell you now, it's a very good piece of kit. I was just going trough my past orders on Amazon and I clicked on Qnap to see how much, if at all, it dropped in price and I noticed some reviews have been left for it.
Summary: Purchased this home network server on the basis of a few of the many features. It has been rock solid and very easy to set up and use. There is an excellent utility for adding additional software applications which are then easily integrated onto the server.
Summary: Each firmware update brings even more features. Google 'QPKG Software' to find all the extra installable packages that extend the usefullness of the device. I would buy qnap again after this one, v.impressed!
Summary: Outstanding device. I originally wanted a device like this one to store and stream digital music, and also to act as a central backup for files. But it can do a whole lot more. It is basically a stand-alone computer with a big disk running Linux.
