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!
Be aware the TS-(x)12 and TS-(x)19 series is slower than the others

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. This server was replacing an Acer WHS that died. I put 4 Hitachi 2 TB drives that in other servers ran fast so the drives aren't the issue. By no means there isn't anything wrong with the device.
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: 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. I liked the extra applications and it appears to be more than a one trick pony.
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. However I couldn't so thought perhaps it was time for a NAS and after much research QNAP fitted the bill.
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. I was absolutley not expecting my current printer to work and as such knew i would probably need a new printer. QNAP provide a list of printers but how wrong was i in terms of getting a new printer.
Summary: Well do I start with this. I took delivery of my NAS today and with great excitement set about the process of transferring my music, films, photos etc. Most of this is stored on my PC but I also have a couple of 1TB external WD HDDs. Installing the software, updating the firmware, formatting the disks, getting up user accounts permissions, with a bit of common sense are all easy enough.
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... war mir persönlich aber einfach zu laut, hat es drum wieder zurück geschickt.
Summary: Som sagt var så ger jag denna Nasen betyget acceptabel, vilket betyder att den fungerar bra till just lagring men inget mer, den är helt enkelt för långsam för att ha till annat. Har sedan tidigare 3st andra Nas bla en Qnap TS-659 Pro+, som ju är många gånger snabbare än denna. Har slängt i 4 st "Hitachi Deskstar H3IK40003272SW 32MB 4TB" diskar som jag hitintills upplever som mycket bra och passande diskar till denna "lagrings Nasen" om jag nu får uttrycka mig så.
Gute Preis/Leistung - Mir ist es allerdings zu langsam
7 February 2012
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. ABER: Ich kopiere häufig große Dateien hin und her und bin mit der Performance absolut nicht glücklich. Unter "Turbo" verstehe ich etwas anderes. Im Schnitt konnte ich Schreibraten von 25-30MB/Sekunde erreichen.
