Summary: I researched reviews, tech specs, drives for the last two years before I settled on this product. QNAP has one of the best reputations in the industry for quality and workmanship. This has an extremely low power draw and I've acheived write speeds of 65 MB a second over gigabit ethernet which is far...
Summary: I purchased this baby on July 18, 2010 & since then, I have no problem with updating firmware & stuff: Pros: -High quality chassis (even feels a little heavy without HDDs cuz of all metal this thing was made of) -High quality components, Prosessor (Marvel), RAID controller (I don't recall its...
Summary: If you need serious storage, take a long look at this NAS. I was using a RAID 5 array in my server. I had it running with a hot spare and it had preserved my data very well over the last 5 years. Then one day I lost the MBR and poof! - all gone.
Summary: Overall I am pleased with this NAS. It is smaller then I expected from the photos (not a bad thing) and is well built. The latches on the drive bays could have been a bit more solid, the locks are really just there to prevent accidental drive removal, but will do little to no good against forced...
Summary: Honestly I'm not even sure why QNAP hasn't utterly trounced it's competition if it's products are all like this one. VERY reasonably priced, extremely full-featured, easy to set up, fantastic performance, just an all around winner.
Powerful, feature rich NAS with steep learning curve
14 February 2011
Summary: I upgraded from previous fan-less QNAP models (TS-109 II, TS-119) to the TS-419P. The 419P was my first introduction to data redundancy/RAID arrays, and I can say that while it did come with a bit of a learning curve, I have completely grown into relying on this product.
Summary: I'll keep this short & to the point: Time of ownership: ~8 months. Documentation is good - there's a quick start guide that gets you going reasonably quickly. It's geared towards PC users, but I was able to suss out the steps for OS-X.
Summary: Having done a lot of research before buying this NAS, I knew what to expect and it has so far not disappointed. It's been in full operation now (with four Seagate ST3000DM001 3TB drives in a RAID5 configuration and all updated to the latest firmware) for a week.
Summary: Bought the QNAP TS-419 12tb TurboNAS to back up my photo archive spread across an array of internal hard drives. The hardware itself is well made, feels sturdy - nice brushed metal and a reassuring weight.
Summary: I needed to replace my existing NAS as it did not support Mac OS Lion. I needed a NAS with good MAC and Windows support and large capacity for future multimedia growth. I bought the QNAP TS-419P II after reading good reviews of QNAP products and checking compatibility on their website.
