Summary: Have had this for about a week now. It was a very simple set up; basically a plug and play. RAID 0 on 4x3TB WD REDs was created in a matter of a few minutes. Copying files were a bit slow over the network with an average of about 35MB/s (I was only using 1 ethernet port). Have to look more into the configuration of the dual ethernet ports and see how to best manage transfer of large volumes of data.
Pros: - easy to set up, - tons of options including dlna server, iSCSI, access rights management (including LDAP or AD authentication), other standard NAS stuff such as NFS, FTP, SSH
Summary: Simple to start using, more complicated to master. I bought to replace a windows home server a job it largely does well, performs well as a media server and network drive. Easy to access from web. Does not have the excellent back up functionality of the home server and seems to take forever to perform back up and I have not managed to back up from remote location over qnapcloud.
Summary: I recently owned the TS-210 qnap nas, and it worked quite well with its ARM cpu, but i was running out of storage fast,and yes i prob could of just gone for larger drives, but i wanted expandability and other perks, so after uming and arring!! i plumbped for the TS-469L, it seemed resoanbly priced, i was not interested in an LCD screen( thats what the GUI is for) and didnt need locks on the drive bays( if someone was going to go to the trouble of taking them i would have...
Great for simple stuff, awful for integration into something more complicated

Summary: After what I thought was a thorough review of available options, I bought the QNAP TS-469L based on price and features offered (or at least their description on paper). Straight out of the box things were encouraging - insert the disks, power up, and the thing was up and running in next to no time. If only the rest of the configuration was so simple.
Summary: Maybe this unit is overkill for what I need it for but for what I do use it for its perfect. I bought this a few weeks ago and within it lives a 3TB, a 4TB and a 1TB drive for all my Movies (1080p MKV's and original ISO's). I also have all my home PC and Laptop documents library pointed to shared folders on the NAS as well as all my work stuff which I access through the MyCloud service and VPN.
Excerpt: Заменил iomega ix2-200 на Qnap. Вставил в него 4 серверных диска seagate по 2Tb, raid 0. Наконец-то получил скорости 100Mb/s и выше в своей домшней гигабитной сети (на iomega выше 15Mb/s не удавалось получить). Поставил Playstation Media Server вместо Twonkey. Подключил сетевую камеру к встроенному софту. Все работает на ура, даже mkv начал показывать через PS3 (правда, mkv при объеме >15Gb подтормаживают время от времени, пока не разбирался).
Pros: быстрый, тихий, можно ставить в гостиную в кач-ве медиа проигрывателя (встроенный xbmc и выход hdmi), честных usb 3 несколько портов. Много различного софта на все случаи жизни. Для дома и малого офиса подходит.
Cons: не для домохозяйки, т.к. диски нужно подобрать/вставить, настроек много разных - не раскроется без энтузиаста. понятно, что стоит дороже "чисто коробочного NAS"
