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

Small Linux Server That Runs RAID Too

Steve, B&H Photo
27 March 2014
  • Excerpt: 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).
  • Pros: Compact, Fast, Quiet

  • 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

Great product for the price, does everything and more that I need

  • 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: 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

  • Excerpt: В целом если его просто настроить для домашней сети, то очень даже ничего.
  • Pros: Габариты, количество сервисов на борту ( FTP/SMB/NFS/SSH/TELNET/Webdav/и т.п. ) Возможна установка различных приложений. даже DLNA несколько видов.
  • Cons: Процессор слабоват, закачка торрентов происходит как будто только последовательно. Медленно обновляет медиатеку ( при выставленных настройках обновлять в режиме реального времени и нажатие синхронизировать сейчас ничем не помогает )
