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.

Little Box with Big Ambitions

Mr. J. Conroy, Amazon
27 January 2013
  • Summary: This little box has big ambitions. It can do just about everything you need to do at home, or even for a small business. Backup, Print and File Server, T.v. recorder, iTunes Server, can share files between different types of pc running different platforms ( windows / mac / linux ). At the moment only got one drive in it ( Seagate 3TB ), more drives will be on order soon. A good tip is too use the same sized drives, then use Raid 5 ( seems the most popular set up ).

QNAP TS-412 NAS

T Combe "Tee Combe", Amazon
4 July 2012
  • Summary: I would recommend this unit particularly at the current offer price. It performs well and as a newcomer to NAS drives is not too tricky to set up. However one needs to insert the disc drives which are not included; this is made clear. My only issue which is not made clear though is that, unless you delve deeply, a number of HD drives are not suitable for a RAID set up. I found this out too late.

Impressive and clever device, but a bit complex

Onion, Amazon
2 July 2012
  • Summary: Mine is a familiar story to Tech support weenies - I relied entirely on a 3TB external USB hard disk to store all my photos from my business as a professional photographer. I did have some stored online, but the majority were sitting on this disk, which was fine until the whole thing suddenly failed without warning. I have lost count of how many people have said, "I could have told you that might happen".

Not bad for the money

Neil Johnson, Amazon
10 December 2011
  • Summary: Like most people I have been steadily hoarding more and more digital media, so I thought it was time I got a NAS server to keep it all safe. I shopped around and to be honest I got caught up with the speed numbers for a while. Eventually I realised that I actually just needed something that I could copy my pictures, video's and documents to without waiting for eternity.
