Summary: Bought this over 2 months ago, the setup was very easy. Lots of options, very fast and reliable NAS. I am running it as a media server going to multiple devices, as a backup for all my data and as a ftp server.
Summary: Replaces a Quad-Core Windows 2000 AD-Server. I also have SheevaPlug computer which used to have a bunch of hard drives attached that was configured over SSH but the QNAP is worth the extra money for the software. All configured through the web browser and very simple to setup. I was using the latest 4.0.2 firmware with 4x1.5TB in RAID-5 and really was just plug and play. Also the power consumption with the Marvell ARM-based chips is a lot less than the Intel I was using.
Summary: This is my second server, my previous was a Bubba. Worked immediately on plug in and has a host of useful features. I like the web server part. With relative ease I've pointed a number of my site to the server. One tiny point, if you use both http: and http://www it counts as two so the total web server sites are halved. I'd still recommend the product mainly because of the raid five configuration and ease of use.
Excellent unit for the price - compact, easy-to-use and sturdy.

Summary: I'd spent some time looking around at different "server" and storage devices, as I simply wanted something to store backups, music and films on. Obviously I wanted an affordable unit, but one that was pretty good. Positives - Very easy to install software and get running - Excellent user interface that works seamlessly with windows. Drives have mapped fine.
Does what it says, delivery great, what else can be said!

Summary: I noted some previous reviews that offered caution however I already had a QNAP TS-410 which, other than power supply cable problems, has proved very reliable. So I needed another one and went for this based on the majority of the reviews. I followed the instructions on arrival and it worked a treat. No failures during migration of Terrabytes of data, no hanging - nothing. That makes it excellent and has performed fantastically ever since. Brilliant!
