Summary: I've owned this QNAP product for a year now. I'm using it with 2x 2TB WD RED's as single disks. Everything you read about QNAP's quality and hardware is true. When comparing QNAP (side by side) to it's competitors (like models) QNAP units typically have more powerful processors and more installed...
GREAT device, make sure your drives are compatible!!

Summary: After reading review after review and after flip-flopping between this and a comparable Synology model, i finally took the drive on the TS-219PII-US model. I would have bought on Amazon, but a competitor was offering the exact same unit $50 off... i now see that Amazon has matched the price.
Summary: Overall i've been happy with this QNAP hardware as it's provided redundant backup, seedboxing and transcoding for my TV. Rsync/cloud backup has been nice as well as it takes away some of the issues with having backups on locaiton.
Summary: $299.00 not cheap, they should have better and solid hardware. Junk, find better hardware, sure not from QNAP anymore. I think I bought the last disconnected one
Pros: I like the OS and how easy to us on QNAP servers (first time user)
Cons: This is the worst hardware (NAS server I ever had), the fan never stops and load, and hard drive always running even after I disconnected from iSCSI, I have 2 bay NAS server from another company, very quiet, and you never hear the drive spinning when on Idle, but this QNAP never stops even after ...
VMWARE & iSCSI feature set is incomplete / poor support

Summary: I find the product lacking in its redundancy feature set and customer support. This comes from first hand experience during the failure of a drive in the QNAP TS-879U-RP, 8 drive product, in January 2013. I am writing to update this review in May 2013. My issues are not solved.
Summary: This is a great product. It's working perfectly: I've been using it for easily a year. The external attached drives is a great future and they have a really good user support forum. It's definitely worth the money.
Summary: I have had this item in use for a few years now with no issues. All my music is here to feed my SONOS music system They are a great pair as no pc needs to be on for me to have instant music anywhere in the home.
