Excerpt: I did a lot of research before going with the QNAP NAS. I wanted something that would allow me to backup all my Macs in one central location as well as a media server to play my extensive collection of music. This NAS fills all those roles and then some. Setup with 2 Western Digital Red 2 TB drives took about 30 minutes.
Summary: QNAP Nas Boxes have been great. I have numerous ones installed in various offices and they have been flawless. The latest bios update is a must, which makes installation and configuration a snap. You can't go wrong with Qnap.
Summary: This is my 2nd QNAP 2 bay unit. The first one survived a house fire, but I want a new one incase the other fails due to hidden damage. The unit is great, quiet, reliable, easy to setup and use. As I bought it twice, you can bet I'd recommend it to others.
Excerpt: I love everything about this NAS server. From the ease of installation, to the ease of management, to it's flawless performance!!!! I just had a little bit of difficulty making my Mac recognize it for Time Machine, but it was easily fixed by mounting the network drive from finder "Go" --> "Connect to server" and you can login with either a user name that you setup or user: TimeMachine and password and it will work like magic. Did not have any other problems.
Pros: Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible
