Be aware the TS-(x)12 and TS-(x)19 series is slower than the others
28 January 2012
Summary: First off I knew the TS-412 is the more efficient/green than the other QNAP servers, but wow I've been really spoiled by the TS-659, TS-459, and the TS-859. I figured since this server was only going to have my music and the logitech squeezebox software on it.
Summary: Running 4 x 2TB Hitachi disks in RAID5. Sustained writes around 28MBps and reads around 67MBps. 3.4.0 firmware was badly bugged, after about 2 days of uptime speeds dropped by 95%, writes would time out, etc. QNAP support was not helpful. Was able to downgrade to 3.3.9 without losing data.
Pros: reasonable price, good performance, many features, low powered and quiet.
Summary: I needed to move all my data to one central secure area. I had 3 USB drives totaling 4TB of data so was looking for a RAID 5 set up. After reading people's reviews of the product compared to the Netgear version I decided to go for this model.
Not bad ... once you've jumped through a few hoops

Summary: When I had to rebuild my PC recently (failed boot drive - never buying Maxtor again!) I bought two 3Tb drives with the intention of creating a RAID array within my PC. If I'd been able to get its RAID firmware to recognise drives over 2Tb that's where they'd be now.
Summary: Good Little NAS for storing files and streaming movies however it can get very loud when transferring files. The CPU isnt the greatest so don't expect any cpu intensive task to run smoothly on this NAS
Summary: As far as this goes from a NAS perspective and streaming and dealing with data i cannot fault it. The front end to configure the system is extremely easy to use and got everything i wanted to work, EXCEPT printing.
Summary: wollte eigentlich ein lüfterloses modell, hab mir drum zuerst die QNAP TS-119 zugelegt - leider war das modell das ich zugeschickt bekommen habe defekt, und es war das letzte modell (auslauf) - hab drum zur TS412 gegriffen...
Gute Preis/Leistung - Mir ist es allerdings zu langsam

Summary: Voller Freude über den meiner Meinung nach günstigen Preis des NAS habe ich dieses bestellt. Die Ersteinrichtung verlief rasend schnell und problemlos und das Webinterface ist grandios einfach. Ein perfektes NAS könnte man meinen.
