Pros: Great personal storage solution. It has met everything I needed. Very easy to setup. After setup I have not seen any issues with speed. The interface is very easy to use. The extra apps are mostly useless, but I'm sure there are some people that they will use them. I tried the plex app, but it won't do any transcoding when installed directly on the qnap. Makes sense as there is just not enough processor and memory. Overall very happy with this device.
Cons: Not much. I did set it up with 4 3TB WD red drives in a raid 10. It took more than 24 hours to get the array fully online. That seemed a bit long to me.
Love this NAS even though I felt I had to modify it.

Summary: I got this NAS with the intention of replacing the stock (Linux based) firmware with a full Linux distribution (RedSleeve), but in the one day I played with the stock firmware I have to say I was quite impressed with the huge range of functionality it offers, as well as the slickness of the web interface (it feels like more like running a VNC session to a full desktop OS running on the NAS than a simple NAS control interface).
Summary: I like this and want to love it but I just find the web interface too temperamental. Initial set up is easy. The server is very quiet and looks great. I have two 1TB red discs and we use it for the whole family. No problems as a file storage unit accessed through explore but the clever stuff is all accessed from the web interface (control panel) With the default setting this is visible but I lose access every time I set up a new password or change the IP address to...
Summary: To be fair, the hardware is pretty good, although transfer rates copying from an external USB3 drive are surprisingly slow. However it is badly let down by the software provided along with the stupid default settings. In short, rather than ensuring the basics are provided, (i.e. a decent NAS), the software tries to be too clever and ends up crippling performance and falling over in a heap. When you buy a NAS it is because you primarily need a NAS. Not a multimedia PC.
Summary: Ich habe bereits vor mehr als 1 Jahr ein Qnap - NAS Gerät dieser Type gekauft und bin damit sehr zufrieden. Als sicheren ausfallfreien Datenspeicher, auf den im gesamten Netzwerk zugegriffen werden kann, sehr zu empfehlen. Die Type TS-421 ist wesentlich schneller im Datenzugriff - es ist beim Arbeiten kein Unterschied in der Geschwindigkeit gegenüber Daten auf dem PC direkt gespeichert
Summary: Bis jetzt bin ich zu frieden. Ich habe eine NAS gesucht die Ich ins Netzwerk stellen kann, und mit der mein Sat-Receiver auch arbeiten kann. beides hiermit kein Problem, und die Verarbeitung ist auch ok.
