Summary: I have owned a QNAP server for over 5 years and the NAS has been working flawlessly. In this unit I installed some of the new RED WD 6TB drives so I would have plenty of space for additional physical drives and data. They are not rated as certified, but they are working fine.
Great NAS, I'm using it as a backup NAS next to a TS-869 Pro

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.
Summary: After a few years of operation on my current generation of daily-offsite-backup NAS devices, my main unit started making more fan racket than it normally does, which told me it was probably time to replace it now rather than after it fails. So I did.
Summary: This is my second 5-bay QNAP NAS server I bought and use this as a backup. I have experience with Dlink and HP, and for home use a 5-bay might be a bit over overkill, but this unit runs quiet and cold. Setup took me a few minutes, just go to the QNAP site, download a utility and you are ready to go.
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).
Summary: I've been researching about my next NAS/Media center for a year now. After figuring out what kind of raid type and how much I wanted to spend for my system I finally decided to get this QNAP 569L, I figured that if im going for a Raid 5 might as well go for the most hard drives i can afford, (since...
Once I figured out how to configure it.....awesome.

Summary: So this is a fairly expensive brand, but you get what you pay for. This is a very solid box and the software is pretty darn flexible too. I put in 5 old unused 750GB Western Digital RE enterprise class drives which in Raid 5 doesn't give me that much space, but they are million hour MTBF drives.
