QNAP makes a quality NAS!

Branden D., Newegg
30 July 2015
  • Pros: I originally purchased this little guy last year to keep all of my college lab files and some mod folders that me and my friends would readily be able to access as well as some basic movie/tv streaming. With x4 WD RED 3TB drives, this device has performed phenomenally with almost all challenges I...
  • Cons: the only con I've come across with my QNAP NAS is when transferring a large amount of data, the rest of the system seems to bog down (significantly) and accessing other resources becomes a very painful task.

Personal NAS

Stephen B., Newegg
17 November 2014
  • Summary: Great Product.
  • Pros: Uses standard RAID configurations 0,1,5,6. It was extremely easy to setup and configure. The built in tools work seamlessly with all my wireless devices (iPad 2, iPhone 4s, and Nokia 920).
  • Cons: Rebuild Time Is Slow.... With that being said, online user group had a simple config change to the root OS that fixed the issue. The original setting on the unit is deliberately slow to allow other drives to operate with only limited performance degeneration. Knowing this, a minor alteration of t...

Excellent NAS

Tom F., Newegg
10 November 2014
  • Summary: I used to run a server at home for the purpose of file storage, backup center, media center, etc... This replaces that system at a fraction of the cost and the size.
  • Pros: Easy to set up. Admin interface easy to use. Lots of apps and modules to install to extend functionality. Ability to bind the two NICs. Ability to upgrade drive capacity in place (Using raid 10, just need to follow procedure and replace each drive one by one). VPN functionality, cloud access outs...
  • Cons: None that I can think of.

Where's that unlike button?

aaron l., Newegg
6 May 2014
  • Summary: I'm using it with 80211ac and gigabit ethernet and it's not exactly responsive in the interface
  • Pros: Relatively inexpensive; quality hardware
  • Cons: "easy to setup" Yeah; um not even a little bit Right at the start it makes you download firmware which I'm sure is OK for 'most' people but 2 hours later maxing out my cell I finally got to the desktop It has a nice feature to plug a HD into the front and you can configure it to import or export ...

Very nice!!

Christian S., Newegg
14 April 2014
  • Summary: I have used these things for years and they are very reliable. I enjoy the "os" they have on it, very very user friendly and you can customize it with wallpapers and cutesy things like that
  • Pros: Easy to set up, if you are new to NAS or a novice, qnap has many nice apps to help you find your nas on the network and set it up through qfinder. Once set up and firmware updated it really is very nice. I had an older qnap and set up a few at my office, and these things are scalable, very compat...
  • Cons: It didn't come with a hat?

DOA

John F., Newegg
13 March 2014
  • Summary: 3 stars (instead of 0) only because Newegg immediately issued RMA and shipping label. Shoprunner free returns are great!
  • Pros: Looks like a great NAS and am looking forward to getting one that works.
  • Cons: DOA
