Summary: I used this product to replace a massive dell server configured in a RAID 5 setup for file storage. This blows it away for speed and has vastly improved network file retrieval and storage space. Its been a few months and I am still impressed.
Summary: I would love to go into great detail on this QNAP, but I don't have much time right now... I do really want to sit down and go over the entire OS and the great features. For now, here are the 2 best features: 1) Amazon S3 backup. This has a built in software to connect to S3. Now all data can be backed up to Amazon daily... 2) Google Drive Sync. Now put all of your files out in the cloud as they are changed for either Drive or on the QNAP... Very nice!
Summary: UPDATE after six months of constant use: This storage array has been in constant use as my home file server, bacup server, media server, and storage for my photo editing and video development. Now, back to my original review, already in progress... Three months ago I decided storage in my home had gotten too complicated.
Summary: This NAS is a pretty powerful little device. I purchased it mainly to stream content to my PS3 and I have found so many more uses for it. I would recommend, though, that you have an intermediate to advanced understanding of IT concepts. Otherwise this NAS might not be right for you. I started with 2 Seagate ST2000DM001 2 TB drives in RAID 1 configuration. The plan is to purchase 2 more of the same in the future and set up RAID 5.
Summary: QNAP builds solid NAS servers and provides excellent customer service both of which I want in anything I buy like this. This is a newer NAS from QNAP and it is one of the few SOHO ones that has USB 3.0 ports. There is at least a 8:1 performance advantage over the old USB 2.0 ports if you move data to or from the unit with the USB ports.
Summary: Jag har haft denna NAS i lite drygt ett år nu. För 2990:- (4490:- nu) på Dustin var den ett bra köp. Jag är väldigt nöjd. Jag kör 4st 2TB diskar i RAID5 vilket ger 6TB lagring. Får strax över 100MB/s vid läsning vilket är bra. Har en extern USB disk för att back up av viktig data. Det är smidigt med one-touch-copy. Jag kör även en hel del applikationer på NAS:en och det flyter på bra tack vare hyfsad CPU och 512Mb RAM.
