Summary: I already have a Drobo on firewire which I got for firewire speed. This time, I needed a NAS and traded off between QNAP and Synology. I settled on QNAP because of price, the OS/Software experience, and I wanted to give some of the apps a try (particularly Plex). Setup is *fairly* straightforward using QNAP's QTS operating system (that looks like some linux that's been customized).

Great product for the price, does everything and more that I need
18 November 2013
Summary: I debated between this device and an equivalent Synology device. While both had great reviews, in the end QNAP had everything I needed at a lower price. At the price I paid I got more than what I would have from Synology of equal price. Any extras I would have gotten from Synology at a higher price I wouldn't need or used. My main purpose for buying this was to be a central file storage, process a backup to an external drive, and have access to data while away from home.
Summary: I use a pair of WD 3T Green drives - everything works at advertised. Throughput is acceptable across the wire - slower than my old G3 Compaq/HP server but MORE than adequate for home/SOHO use (about 1/2 a gig was my best case on large files with large frames). Hot swap is nice - the drive trays feel cheap/"plasticky", rest of the unit is fine.
Pros: Simple setup, quiet, lots of software included - more downloadable via the web
Summary: This NAS Is both fast and has many great features. Setup is a breeze, for someone who has never used a NAS before. Experience users will love the options that are available. I put in 2 3Tb Seagate Baracudas, they where recognised straight away, formatted and ready to use in under 10 minutes. It has a lot of security options from Active Directory integration to Groups and individual users. It handled quotas and everything you would need from a NAS.
Summary: This is a really good product. Fairly easy to install ans set up. Menu's are clear and easy to follow. There are a lot of included apps but most are not very useful. It works very well as a DNLA box streaming FLAC music and my videos across my home gigabit network. The included TWONKY media server could do with some work but it does the job I suppose. All in all a great device.
Summary: en remplacement d'un ts212 très performant pour une utilisation personnel. Un effort sur l’emballage est à faire (carton trop grand et peu de papier bulles) RAS sur les délais la livraison en point colis c'est bien passé
Summary: Je l'ai depuis 2 jours et il fonctionne très bien, très facile à installer, le firmware se télécharge d'internet vers le serveur sans passer par le pc et tout est gérable via le navigateur donc compatible avec tous les systèmes d'exploitation. Il y'a vraiment beaucoup de réglage, très précis, donc il faut prévoir d'y passer plusieurs jours. Très silencieux, le ventilateur tourne plus-ou-moins vite en fonction de la température.
