Summary: Overall this is a great storage product for small business. I've used them for several years and numerous models. They also have a support line you can call for questions and assistance, which is nice. But they are not perfect by any means.

Summary: Fantastic NAS! I've had this unit for about two years and it has performed flawlessly. It has five seagate 4TB NAS drives installed (4 in a RAID and 1 as a spare). I was reluctant to spend so much on a NAS for my house at first, but it has become a centerpiece in the home network.
Summary: Very pleased with this new NAS. Bought it to replace a previous LaCie NAS (5 disk) when the enclosure failed. I expect hard drives to fail (moving parts), but very disappointed with LaCie enclosure failing, but I digress. The new QNAP NAS is 8 bay and I've loaded it with WD 4TB Red drives.
Summary: I purchased this with great trepidation. There are so many reviews online for QNAP and Synology NAS units that I finally made the choice based upon the number of discs (8) for the best price. To my great relief, the QNAP is a spectacular unit.
Summary: This product has performed over a year flawlessly. It has been easy to maintain, and was easy to install. The hot swap feature works as advertised. It is also very easy to spot a failed drive.
TS-869 Buy this before you waste your money on Synology!!!!
