Summary: I've given this 2 stars because it is possible that it might be OK for an expert user. From my point of view however it scores zero stars. It was fiddly but not difficult to install the new WD Red hard drives that I had also bought from Amazon, and the Cloud-based initialisation works beautifully.
Summary: Having a few different NAS units, including a few QNAP, I bought this for a wee unit for occasional (Semi) portable use. Frankly this was a mistake, as I am only competent at Linux, not an expert (see other reviews).
Summary: Very easy to set up and configure. I use it as a shared network drive, which works very well with windows 8 File History (Start -> File History). I didn't have much luck with setting it up as an ISCSI drive (so it appears like a local hard drive attached to your computer).
I've had this unit since April and am pleased I went with it

Summary: I've had this unit since April and am pleased I went with it. Setting up the unit was pretty straight forward. I'm probably using it a little different to most folks so just wanted to relay my set up and functionality I have used it for. I initially installed 2 x 4TB HDDs in a RAID configuration.
Summary: I have upgraded to this unit from a WD MyBook Live, which I've found to be too slow and unreliable for my home media set up. The QNAP is working well so far. I installed one WD Red 2TB drive, which was super easy. Red drives are recommended because they run at a low temperature for NAS systems.

Summary: This is a superb and very reasonably priced nas. I have tried quite a few different nas enclosures and this one is by far the best in its in a class above even the highly rated synology offerings imho! You can install just about anything thats usefull for a nas.
Summary: Works great with all my mobile devices. In all honesty I've not spent too much time with it. I only transferred my data onto the NAS and am using it as a network drive on my PC or through a media client on my mobiles.
