Setup experience

cc6, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • 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. I'm happy with the performance and functionality of the unit but setting the unit up was a challenge.

  • Summary: I have been very hesitant to write this review because of my back and forth initial experiences with this NAS, but since owning it for a good period of time (bought it in Sept 2012) and now since the latest firmware update its been rock solid. First the drives I bought were listed as compatible (if a firmware update was done on them - which I did before installing) however gave me all sorts of problems.

TS-412 NAS First Impressions

Diwakar, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • 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. My usage is of a typical home user. I set out with the following goals: - Be able to stream up to 1080P media to few machines and TV at home.

Don't buy NAS if you just want backup

JHE, Amazon
6 April 2014
  • Summary: Unless you are intending to share your movies, photos and music around rhe house, and wirh other family members, then you don't need NAS - you need an external disk connected to the back of your computer. I have both, for differnt purposes NAS vs Backup 1. COST: Empty NAS costs just over £200 without disks. You can buy two 4tb drives for the same amount. I connect my external drive when I want to back up then disconnect it and switch it off. 2.

Some Minor Issues But Good In The End

Mr D, Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: I got the 8TB as was looking for a method of backing up my photographic collection that has >100k images of between 8 and 50MB each. After reading the instructions online a number of times I eventually got it running on Raid 5 giving me 6TB of usable storage with the knowledge the losing one hard drive would not lose my data. One of the disks sometimes fails to initialize, but pulling out and pushing back in again fixes that.

It does the job and then some

Spike Bainbridge, Amazon
19 October 2013
  • Summary: I wanted an easy way to back up data, music, video etc and being sceptical I thought multiple back ups was the way to go. I already had about 2Tb of data on various other drives (some backing each other up) and wanted somewhere to centralise everything. Probably not what the system was designed for but hey.... it works for me.

Nice bit o' kit

M. Saunders, Amazon
14 February 2013
  • Summary: Lots of features, easy setup, plugins available to expend its capabilities, quiet compared to a PC, nice GUI. Takes a long time for it to sync RAID5, but gets there in the end. It's still usable whilst syncing, just not fault-tolerant.
