Haven't been able to use as intended.

Richard B. Romig, Amazon
15 May 2014
  • Summary: Installing the drives and getting my data restored to it wasn't much of a problem using the web-based utility. I still haven't found out how to actually use this as a Network Area Storage device. I'm not interested in using it as a personal cloud or as a multi-media or music player. I just want to be able to easily access it from any computer on my network, regardless of operating system by mapping a drive or mounting a volume.

Great Value

Chi Son, Amazon

  • Summary: It's probably the cheapest NAS that you can buy that supports RAID 1. Pros: 1) Easy to setup and configure 2) It works 3) It's cheap 4) It's great if all you want to do is use it as a pure network drive Cons: 1) The software sucks really bad. 2) You can't disable thumbnail generation permanently. When you browse a folder with a bunch of videos the first time, ffmpeg will spend hours generating thumbnails, and you won't be able to use the NAS during this time.

Video playback unsatisfactory

  • Summary: I brought the 212 prior to this model and video playback stutters and skips frames. Music seems ok. So thoroughly investigate if you are looking to stream movies. Also the Qnap app for both the ipad and the lumina 520 fails to recognize the server but my desktop and laptops communicate quite well. Technical service is about turnover. They have directed me to specifics in their website to find answers. In short more work than I anticipated.

  • Summary: Works like a charm. Kind of a chore to install the hard drives compared to other NAS's...not plug/play. Requires screws.

Works as it should

D. Long "DeAngelo", Amazon
2 May 2014
  • Summary: Deserves 5 stars because I have had no issues with this device. It does what it should and is simple to set up. I am not a tech guru, but I am not PC ignorant, either. Has a ton of features if you choose to use them. I just wanted a separate storage device that I could access remotely using PLEX. Works great!

Highs and lows

james taliaferro, Amazon

  • Summary: A ton of features are included with this device. You can access storage by almost any storage / file sharing protocol. Sorry, no fiber. The big downside is the weak ARM processor. For all the ways you can store and access files, you're going to be waiting for it to happen. Also, don't even think about streaming movies from this thing. The low powered CPU just won't cut it.

Great product a must to all that love to pile up pictures and music

Miguel F. Toriz Chong "MFT", Amazon

  • Summary: My first cloud device was a WD mycloud of only one HD, the software wasn't great but not that bad,it help me to keep my daugthters photo history and part of my music collection. It lasted a year and half and suddenly broke, with no possibility to access at the device. Thankfully I had about 75% of the data backed up, a friend of my recommended me a Qnap and I started doing some reasearch. I got a good deal on the TS-212-E with upgraded processor.

I did gave it a try but disappointed

clark, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: I saw this one was on sale so I decided to give QNAP a try since I already have two 2-bay NAS from Synology. The hardware is fine, solid, good looking and easy to install, however the software is buggy, both Ethernet and USB 3 speed are slow when compare to products from Synology with similar spec.
