Good, but Slow. and Buggy

prince1099, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Still buggy, but good enclosure. Better than the rest of the cheapies. The good ones start at $600. This one is cheap and slow. No power, ridiculously slow and overwhelmed processor and memory capacity. This would have been good 3-5 years ago. Today, we have different expectations of a PCNA - But.... You get what you pay for.

Small and powerful, but lacking in software reliability

ProfesShanel, Amazon
27 June 2014
  • Summary: This is my first NAS unit and I equipped it with two 3TB WD Red drives, the NAS is connected by CAT6 Ethernet directly to my Modem. The Bad: The NAS reboots every once in a while resulting in a long wait while streaming a movie to my Xbox360, also the main reason why i chose this over a comparable Synology is because this is capable of transcoding, I only wish I could completely turn transcoding off now but it seems to be impossible to completely disable.

Probably the best deal in town for a low end ARM based NAS device

Jeff D., Newegg

  • Summary: I bought this TS-212P more than 6 months ago at an insanely inexpensive price when it was first released, but just finally got around to setting it up the other day.
  • Pros: - Very easy setup
  • Cons: - printed documentation in the box could be more for beginners. Even if it is just a few pages that goes over some of the basics of logging in and pointers to the online docs.

Worked Briefly and then Died

Jonathan e., Newegg
22 June 2014
  • Summary: Like I've said, QNAP's customer service was really helpful but this product, IMHO, is a waste of money.
  • Pros: Easy to assemble/setup and compact
  • Cons: Well where to start.......The unit worked after initial setup however I didn't realized that this unit was cloud-based as opposed to attaching it to my existing network. So I got optimistic and tried it and its features. It was functioning for 2 days and then the 3rd day I could no longer connect to it via the provided software. I finally put the troubleshooting aside since I was going overseas and finally got back to it last week. That is when I found out that there ...

Works well

James Z., Newegg

  • Summary: QNAP likes their users -- this has ssh capability out of the box. Supports opkg extensions so adding more functionality is a snap for linux geeks. Decent user forum at qnap.com.
  • Pros: Works very well, both out of the box and after tinkering with it. Supports ssh, opkg/ipkg.
  • Cons: none

What...a...pain

Roger D., Newegg
31 May 2014
  • Pros: Delivered quickly, and packaged well.
  • Cons: So far, this has been anything but intuitive to use. Starting with the initial setup, I've spent more time troubleshooting it than I have had enjoying the features. My initial use for this unit was simply for backup and music streaming, so it's not like I'm doing a lot of power user stuff. In two weeks, have had two tickets with their Help Desk, (one still unresolved). The device keeps restarting every few hours for no apparent reason. Now having issue with back up, w...

Affordable and great cost / benefit.

ANDRE B MENGATTI, Amazon
23 May 2014
  • Summary: I also have a Synology DS212+, and this is my second NAS purchase. Even though I paid much more for my synology 2 years ago, this Qnap has almost the same hardware spec. It features RAID 1 support, a very versatile operating system, and it's decently fast for the price (40mb/s write and 60mb/s read speed). I'm using two WD RED NAS HDD with it in RAID 1, and it's all going well so far.

Decent NAS

Armen Galustyan, Amazon
21 April 2014
  • Summary: Pretty decent NAS, have a lot of features although most people won't use most of them. I have 2 issues with this NAS. 1) DLNA server doesn't allow you to specify default sorting of the files. The photos get organized alphabetically instead of by date. 2) The photo station app doesn't work that well, it doesn't create albums from the folders you already have on the NAS.
