Very Nice but...

  • Pros: Fast and easy to setup. Works well in a shared Apple/Windows environment. I replaced a Synology DS213 that I could never get working properly. The 4.0.5 firmware/interface is cool and very easy to navigate, very pleased with the performance so far.The only issue I've had is getting Cloud services to work properly, could be a compatibility issue with my Netgear R7000 router, jury's still out as no response yet from QNAP tech support.
  • Cons: Tech Support

Failed after a few months

  • Summary: So if you buy this unit, you probably should buy the extended warranty.
  • Pros: Good performance for the price.
  • Cons: Unit's Ethernet interface failed. When that happens, you are hosed. In hind sight, a failback one could have implemented (while the unit was working) would have been to exploit the fact that the unit can utilize a USB WiFi dongle as an alternative network interface. Then, if/when the wired Ethernet failed, one could still (albeit much slower) access the unit. Various forums, including QNAPs, indicate this failure mode isn't all that rare.

  • 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
  • Cons: Slow Raid 1 / Mirror sync, cheap drive trays

High Quality, Feature rich NAS Solution.

Aaron Thorne, Amazon
1 November 2013
  • 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.

Good quality NAS

Jackson M. Nutt "Jakey", Amazon

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Десять раз подумайте прежде чем покупать сей девайс: на вторую неделю таймашина беспричинно перестала видеть диск на НАС. Оказалось что это болезнь всех qnap и универсального лечения для этого нет/ Есть специальный фикс но он не помог, прошился новой прошей - аж бета версией QTS 4.1.0 но это все рапвно не устранило проблему - таммашина не видит НАС и не бекапит на него хотя для ТМ он и покупался.
  • Pros: работает, поддерживает харды на 4 ТБ
  • Cons: шумный, глючит

Qnap TS221

KJosef Voß "miel", Amazon
9 February 2014
  • Summary: Ich habe dieses System gewählt, weil ich mit meinem Qnap TS119 sehr zufrieden war. Aber die neue Nas ist schneller, was die Bakups doch sehr beschleunigt. Steht im Keller, daher von der Geräuschseite nicht relevant. Allerdings habe ich es noch nicht geschafft, sie in den St-By-Modus zu schicken. Stromverbrauch ist daher bei Ruhe immer so bei 15/16 Watt. Aber sie läßt sich ja problemlos von der Einschaltzeit programmieren.
