Excerpt: USE: I am unable to use the product for it's intended use.GOOD: Decent looking product. Appears to be a solid build product.NOT GOOD: Most of the apps, both the preinstalled, and the third party apps., do not work consistently. The GUI for access to the apps, in my opinion, lacks functionality and usability.
Summary: I'm looking for a 1 bay NAS to help solve a problem. What I need to be able to do is to synchronize folders on multiple Macs and PCs without disrupting existing file structure. To rephrase it in terms of my workflow, I have photos that I need to be able to edit on different workstations. Because all of the photos are typically 100+ megabytes, working over the network is a bottleneck so I need LOCAL copies of all these files.
Excerpt: Still working with tech support for solutions...this unit is NOT for the computer timid or beginner unless you are using a normal modem/router that does not include TV, e.g., Prism. This has been, perhaps, the most challenging and frustrating computer hardware installation I have experienced in a long time. Does not play well with a Cisco DDR2200.
Summary: Purchased to deploy at my parents home so they would have some media center storage options, backup, etc. and using it for RSYNC/NAS to NAS back up from my QNAP TS-469Pro unit. Works like a charm, no issues 2 months later. Only items on the wish list for this product is an option to install additional memory and an HDMI port to take advantage of the 4.0x media center functionality. I would definitely recommend this product especially at this price point.
Summary: Excellent NAS....I use it to stream to my Logitech Squeezeboxes......It handles 24/96 streaming with ease. The new interface is just great. This is my second QNAP device, I still have a TS-110 that has been solid.
Summary: First I got a very good deal on this item, which is kind of a steal. Pro This NAS is quick moving my files onto it is a breeze I'm talking about over 50mb per sec. I have bought WD personal cloud before returning because of speed. But this one you have speed, size and QNAP OS with endless possibility. Although relatively expensive but it's worth every penny. Con It doesn't take delivery and do the dishes.
