Great NAS Option

Kevin D., Newegg
31 December 2014
  • Summary: Hope to get SMTP working here soon.
  • Pros: The user interface is really nice. It integrates with Active Directory, and to tell the truth has way more options than we will ever use since we bought this purely to back up servers using Symantec BackupExec. It supports iscsi and works well so far.
  • Cons: There are so many menus that it took a while to learn where everything was located, but this isn't really a complaint. It is very friendly overall. The only real con so far is that we can't get the SMTP email notifications to work. Our firewall is opened up correctly. QNAP did help troubleshoot f...

GREAT NAS FOR PRICE!!!

Ben J., Newegg
5 August 2014
  • Summary: So much more efficient than my home built file server. Uses way less power so much so that I have noticed a $15 decrease in my power bill per month.
  • Pros: Hot swap 5 bays, plenty of add on applications, easy to set up and use, quiet, efficient
  • Cons: does allow you to run XBMC but can be sluggish at times which is not enough for me to remove an egg since this was a pleasant discovery and you should really use a HTPC for watching your movies, however what does cost this NAS one egg is that it only supports 3GB of RAM max.

Great NAS, I'm using it as a backup NAS next to a TS-869 Pro

Johannes Luijten, Amazon
5 June 2014
  • Summary: This is my second QNAP NAS. This model is very solid (as all QNAP hardware) and doesn't do under for the "Pro" model. The only difference with the Pro version is the LCD display, and the fact that you can't lock the drives with a key.

Decent NAS, not completely polished

Kris P., Newegg
28 May 2014
  • Summary: For the number of negatives I listed, I think it's only fair to add at the end that I overall like the unit and don't feel that any of the alternatives would necessarily be better.
  • Pros: Attractive unit. Supports large drives and any type of RAID. Has a myriad of features, including iSCSI, NFS and AD integration if you are looking at a business or home IT lab use, HDMI and VGA outputs with built-in xbmc to double as a home theater PC, various internet server applications. US base...
  • Cons: The documentation isn't very good or up to date. The user community (not the actual technical support from QNAP) seemed intentionally unhelpful and there are some clear firmware bugs (none harmful to data so far). Those interested in the home theater PC use should consider that the unit is a bit ...

Quick Snap to Set Up

James M. Bell, Amazon
30 August 2013
  • Summary: Qnap setup very quickly, considering it had to format and prepare 5 x WD RED 3 GB drives for RAID 5. 3GB x (5-1)= 12 GB of NAS space. It came with predefined folders and easy to map to each in windows, but functionality in Linux. Was not fond of the built in clients i.e. (FTP and Bittorrent).

TS-569 PRO-US

Matthew, Amazon
30 August 2013
  • Summary: This device is fast, efficient, reliable, and full featured. I run a small office and I have a tight budget so this NAS really helped out acting as our server. Not only is this budget friendly compared to servers, the QNAP OS is amazing.

Central Bank for Data and amazing fast!!!

JCC, Amazon
30 August 2013
  • Summary: I learned about QNAP NAS from a friend of mine. I need a centralize location where my family and I can access files at any given time. This unit is amazing fast downloading and transferring files. I also learned there is a HDMI output that will enable to turn the NAS into a media player.

Love it

Alfred Giordano, Amazon

  • Summary: Been running for a few months now and 0 problems. Fast, easy to use, all the features I could ask for and more. Great UPS connectivity feature shuts down the device automatically in the event of a power outage. Highly recommended.

BEST NAS EVER!

CTD, Amazon
30 August 2013
  • Summary: Bought one and I simply love this device. Some reasons why this is the best NAS for me. 1. The linux based os gives me the choice to tweak and change things to my liking. 2. The QPKG center gives me every add-on I need from wordpress, python, NZBGet, SABnzbd+, sick beard, etc. 3.
