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...
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).
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.
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).
Pros: Simple setup, quiet, lots of software included - more downloadable via the web
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 )
