Summary: First off, thankyou QNAP for thinking of in the low end of the market! NAS devices tend to be pretty overpriced for the grade of components required, and QNAP is less overpriced than most. Whats to like: You throw some matched big disks in there, turn it on, and pretty soon have a ten terabyte storage device on your network. And without the power bill of leaving a computer online to manage it!
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 using one ethernet port -uses almost no electricity -software constantly getting upgraded. Apps are generally much better than when I first bought this.
Summary: And, several of other models. QNAP just makes great affordable very robust easy to use Network Attached Storage devices. And, their support is awesome, and I have called and emailed with them. Always courteous and helpful. The features found, would cost 10x as much from other vendors and not be as easy to use. I use these as RRTR targets, and as a portable big drive for image sets. Speed is right on the money!
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. I knew nothing about using a NAS or setting one up, and ended up buying just 2 2TB drives and setting them up as RAID-0.
Summary: I'd bought a TS-419 but it came with a mother board issue, so i returned it and bought the TS-412 model, it was cheaper and has almost the same features. in my opinion not to have a display is even better, the blue light from the TS-419 display keep annoying me at night
Summary: We use QNAP for storing of our High Definition MegaPixel Surveillance cameras with no reported problem, when used with the approved HDD's. Jose M. Noy President/CEO ComSurv, Inc. High Definition Surveillance [...
Summary: The setup was not too hard, and it works generally well, but has a couple of problems - e.g. the Mac share does not work, sometimes my Mac does not find it in the network, and the media library is unreliable. The basic NAS features work fine.
