great home or small business NAS

Brian K., Newegg
12 October 2014
  • Summary: for me, this device has replaced an always-on spare PC for media storage and backups. it also allowed me to scrap a media PC in favor of a wi-fi bluray player with DLNA streaming. it hosts all of my tablet/phone/PC backups, and it performs all of my automatic cloud backups.
  • Pros: lots of features and native apps lots of 3rd party apps dual LAN connections low power quiet regular firmware updates 3TB drive support
  • Cons: needs more RAM! i find i reboot about once a month to clear some headroom in the memory and speed up my media server. the processor is not adequate for some of the apps this NAS supports (eg, plex media). but for a pure file server, backup/sync location, or DLNA media server it's fine. i wouldn't...

Qnap TS-412 is a great NAS option

Matthew Horbund, Amazon
16 August 2013
  • Summary: After much procrastination, and failed 1-TB usb drives, I went ahead and purchased a NAS. I spoke with several IT guys at my company, all responsible for network storage in a global company. They all said QNAP is fairly easy to use/install and reliable. I am quite pleased with my purchase.

Compact, Efficient, Easy to use

Darcy V., Newegg
28 March 2013
  • Summary: All in all I consider this a very worthwhile purchase. I got the expanded storage I needed for my media collection and backup needs, and the price was right. It looks great sitting between my two desktop / workstation machines, and its able to meet my data transfer demands.
  • Pros: Compact and stylish housing. 4 External Hot Swap bays. Easy installation and setup *See Other 25-40MB/second write speeds depending on file size and transfer type. 35-65MB/second read speeds depending on file size and transfer type. Supports multiple RAID types 0,1, 5, 6, and JBOD. Includes media...
  • Cons: ARM CPU, look its very powerful for the electricity it uses, but its still an ARM chip. The big downside is that a few of the QPKG plugins I intended to run on this server are X86 compatible only. If you intend to run PS3 Media Server or any plugin check the CPU type compatibility before your pur...

Great

Bjorn K., Newegg
31 December 2012
  • Summary: For the price, you can't beat it.
  • Pros: Works great, does all I need
  • Cons: HDD sleep mode with latest firmware. Take some tweaking to get the HDD to go to sleep. With the latest firmware, but I'm pretty sure they'll have it figured out soon.

Just not worth it

Ken H., Newegg
19 October 2012
  • Summary: I'm not sure who else is in the market at this price point, but do yourself a favor and find out who they are.
  • Pros: Web interface is well-designed and really easy to use. There are a lot of compelling features on this device.
  • Cons: We have 3 QNAP devices, two of these and one of a higher model, and they are hands down the worst purchase decision we ever made. They frequently mark drives as "Read/Write Error". There's nothing really wrong with the drivers, but you have to pull them out and run the drive manufacturer's fix an...

Setup experience

cc6, Amazon
28 January 2012
  • Summary: I came to the table with three external USB SATA drives filled with TV, movies, music, and documents. I wanted to consolidate all these drives into one network accessible location. The TS-412 appeared to be an excellent fit for my needs and an easy way to connect my individual drives to the network.

It's a NAS? It's an Ornament.

M. Posey, Amazon
28 January 2012
  • Summary: This review will be based on my experience with the unit. It's not intended to refute the "successes" of the others that have reviewed this box. I do not intend to assert that after "Detailed Study", it's the boxes fault. That said, on with the review. This box is AN ORNAMENT.

TS-412 NAS First Impressions

Amazon Customer, Amazon
28 January 2012
  • Summary: This is the first NAS, I have ever owned. I did a lot of research and was undecided between Synology 411j and QNAP and then between QNAP 412, 419P+ or 439s. Kept changing my budget from anywhere between $360 to $660 as you can see from the range of products I was looking at.

Pretty awesome

Jim W, Amazon
28 January 2012
  • Summary: I bought this about 2 years ago, in mid 2012. I have since recommended it to friends who have similar storage needs. The Good: -hot swappable bays galore -tons of external connectors (esata, usb, etc) -one touch copy is very useful (and programmable as well now) -fast enough for all my needs just...
