Summary: So far, so good. Excellent back-up for my network computers. Also a good server for Logitech Squeezebox Duet streaming music system. OK, it is not lightning fast (few NAS are), but thoroughly competent with quality components, which is reassuring. My one gripe (and I suspect this would be the case whatever brand/model I bought) is that the documentation and help links DON'T SPEAK ENGLISH to me - they speak GEEK!!
Summary: In operation now for two months the Qnap is quiet and efficient, in use primarily as a back up device for 3 PCs and a music server to an iPad. The enclosure was purchased separately from the 2 HDDs which are Western Digital Caviar Green 3TB. They were recommended by the Qnap site and were bought for their energy efficiency. This may contribute to their sluggish performance which was noticable during set up but fine while the unit is working in the background.
One of the best value and reliable home nas offerings

Summary: I've had one of these over a year now and have to say its become a vital piece of the household - providing a central storage for all of our media behind the scenes Have had a disk failure during the year (one of the disks I bought separately to the nas) - and I managed to plug in a new disk with no loss of data - so its able to accomplish its primary purpose in life.
Summary: This is a great piece of kit, but some knowledge of computers is required to set this up. I have had this several days now and I still just seem to be scratching the sureface when it comes to the QNAP's capabilities. I am really glad I purchased this but its not for the fient hearted.
Summary: THE PRODUCT ARRIVED IN GREAT CONDITION. I HAVE HAD NO PROBLEMS WITH IT SET UP WITH 2X SEAGATE BARRACUDE 2TB DRIVES. HOWEVER THE PRODUCT WAS SHIPPED WITH NO UK MAIN PLUG WHICH I HAD TO PURCHASE SEPARATELY FOR AROUND £10. THATS THE ONLY REASON I HAVE RATED IT WITH 4 STARS.
Summary: The first thing to say is that the capabilities of the product are huge - whilst I have fairly simple needs, the amount of stuff you can do with it is pretty impressive. I bought it for two main uses - firstly as a backup device for files, photos etc, and secondly to stream media around the house, so my review only really covers these functions. The pros are: - it looks great, feels very solid and well-built. - it runs quietly.
