Summary: I am not sure what to think of this rail. I bought it to go with my Qnap Ts-421u Nas, which it does do, but it can't fit in my Navepoint 12U Deluxe cabinet, even though the NAS can fit in the cabinet. I can't seem find shorter rails that are compatible with both things.
Summary: I couldn't possibly recommend this NAS. It's very slow and very hard to use. The various apps (surveillance, media streaming, cloud support) promise much but, in my experience, are either clunky or just plain don't work .
Summary: I wonder how many are still functioning ? It was lightly used. It was fine, while it worked, though there is some lack of flexibility due to the default shares, which cannot be renamed or changed. Recently, I shut down the TS-410. It never came back to normal operation.
Summary: I bought that for quite some time now, and still works perfectly! QNAP releases a new FW from time to time (wich means the product is well supported). As an example, my other Buffalo NAS has no new FW since 2010, and there is a lot of promisses from the vendor do update, but that's only it.
Fast and reliable, fully featured and an awesome price. One of my better purchases.

Summary: Make sure you update the Firmware to the latest version before anything else and use compatible hard-drives, which is common practice itself. Having done that, this absolutely deserves 5 stars.
Summary: As a SysAdmin, one should be aware of the capabilities of raid5. one disk failing should not make the data unaccessable, nor should it prevent the embeded OS from booting; Both occurred. After obtaining a new disk, the data STILL failed to rebuild.
Pros: high storage capacity, fast io
Cons: When it fails, it fails. raid5 didn't rebuild
Summary: Qnap NAS is the best available NAS in the market. I am using it with 4 x 2TB seagate Disks. Also i added another Raid enclosure through the esata port in the back and working fine. However, take care that qnap is compatible with a short list of external disk enclosures.
