Decent NAS but has some significant problems.

N N, Amazon

  • Summary: The QNAP is not bad for the value of what you get. The multimedia station included that will transcode files is not perfect but it works very well. If this isn't to your liking you can always download Plex or other "apps" that will easily take its place.

Love QNAP, but this one is too slow

Jim S, Amazon

  • Summary: Way too slow, even for home use. I have about 15 of these that I work with at my job. This is the only 212E that we have. It is just way too underpowered to do anything effectively. Spend the money and buy one with a larger processor and more memory.

Slow and too much bugs

Gc "iPoker", Amazon

  • Summary: Despite all the great functions that this device has to offer, it only works well on some of them. Fortunately the useful functions work fine. Con: -The transcoding will only scale up or down with compatible format, most likely standard mp4. Otherwise it will freeze without warning.

Video playback unsatisfactory

macaphile, Amazon

  • 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.

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.

Lots of Problems

eduardo, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: I would buy another NAS (other brand), but a friend told me this would be great. I did not like this. See below why: 1. NAS becomes slow on my network and I have to restart every 3 days. For example, to paste a mp3 file to another folder inside NAS it can spend 10 minutes 2.

  • Excerpt: Думал, это хорошее удобное решение, а оказалось, что это какой-то "подарок сисадмину".
  • Pros: Приятный внешний вид
  • Cons: Очень сырые прошивки Ни одна из функций толком не работает. Идущий с хранилищем софт под MacOS валится с ошибками
