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 . I'm the only user and often with no other apps running, no backups, no file access, etc the web interface times out because because the server is too busy. WTF is it doing?
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. After a great deal of time and trouble trying to figure out what was wrong and retrieving a few files that were not backed up elsewhere, my only options are to throw it out, or spend more time & money to...
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. Getting back to to QNAP I'm able to get a sustainable transfer of 25 to 30 MB/s.
Summary: This network attached server is amazing. The setup of the RAID drives was totally simple. The software pre-installed on the system allows it to provide useful services immediately. I have it serving up photos, videos, and music to my home entertainment system with no problems. I am setting it up to store backups of multiple machines on the network. There are additional apps to expose a web file manager and a download station (FTP/HTTP/Bit Torrent).
Summary: I have moved all of my valuable data to the QNAP and let all my systems access it over the LAN. The performance is great and I find that it just works. The management interface is straight forward and easy to set up. I was able to set quality access permissions, etc in no time.
Summary: I have used this product for 1 week now but I am quite impressed with it already. This is a NAS SERVER so if you are looking for just a dumb (or RAID) disk enclosure then this will be an overkill (I recommend the Startech S354UFER (crazy name but great product) which is an excellent RAID enclosure). At this price this is a real quality product. The disks were a breeze to install, the metal frame seems both solid and also made installing the disks easier.
Summary: I like the System, easy interface, so many set up options! Overall opinion, recommend, very happy with purchase, my main concern was power outages and the ability for the system to manage a UPS and shut down as needed, and this puppy does this! Only one personal thought, as I like to run drives as cool as possible!
Summary: Having had this NAS for a while now, I'm extremely pleased. Most of the products that are out there and around this price range have big limitations somewhere (must use specific drive manufacturers, small RAID options, slow transfer speed, etc.). This device STARTS with the 4 drive option (with a huge range of supported drives) and then is capable of EXPANSION with more devices!
Summary: I have owned this NAS for almost a year now and have absolutely no complaints. Set up is very easy and it has done everything I needed it to do and more. I use it as storage for all of my music, movies, and pictures among all of my other files. I use the web interface extensively from work and on the road. I use both secure web and ftp with no problems. Speed has been just fine.
