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".

Disappointed with QNAP warranty, although as a product done the job correctly. Used for small Business.
