Summary: Shipping was wonderful - arrived well ahead of my expectations. Unit rattled when unpacking it. Looked inside and found heat sink dropped off board and was loose in case - Obviously I wasn't going to turn it on. Requested return. Got email from PCRUSH saying response in 24 hours or less.
Summary: Très bon produit de sauvegarde et excellent serveur mais il faut le mettre entre les mains d'un vrai pro des serveurs car les paramétrages sont "touchy". Prévoir également un switch et un routeur Gigabit. Dommage qu'il n'y ait pas de périphérique Thunderbolt.
Summary: QNAP forum--don't be surprised if you get flamed for cross posting. The elite on there are far more concerned with etiquette than helping you solve your problem. If you decide to open your unit up, be sure to pull the custom drive board out before removing the mainboard or you will damage something...
Pros: Quality workmanship and appearance. If the software has what you need, it is quite flashy and easy to use. Wiki, Forum and How-To guides available. You can build QPKGs to add-in features not in the base software. Unit comes with both the Emulex and Intel mounting brackets. Screws and cables provi...
Cons: Under the covers the software leaves quite a bit to be desired--no ZFS and the RAID configuration appears rather cluegy. The hardware appears to be a genuine UEFI based PC, but it is only about 90% so. It's certainly not a standard ATX board. Many software packages refuse to install on it without...
Summary: I live far away in middle east, and I find it important to mention that QNAP factory packing is more than excellent. Excellent product, easy to setup, and the sound of fan is not bad at all if the server is placed away from your screen.
Summary: I complain about the price because its relevant to me, however if you fill the box full of enterprise drives and a 10 gigabit interface, it will keep up with SAN systems costing millions of dollars.
Pros: Easy to set up and full of functionality. This SAN/NAS has been very reliable. This box is extremely high performance, especially when you put a 10 gigabit adapter in it. The box is VMware certified and plays well with ESX5.
Cons: I wish it was about 10% cheaper. Also, DO NOT try and use it for the surveillance station option. That functionality is worthless.
Summary: For those who are looking for a large capacity NAS Server, the QNAP TS-879 Pro will fit needs up to 24To if fitted with 8x 3To discs . The Dual-core Intel® Core(tm) i3-2120 Processor (3.3 GHz) and the various Ethernet connections (1Go and/or 10Go) will insure speed to access the large data files.
Excerpt: В рекламе сказано - работает из коробки. У меня из коробки не получилось. Типа подключения у провайдера nat, роутер всем устройствам раздает отлично сетевые настройки. NAS при получении сетевых настроек почему то не схватывал dns сервера. Если выставлять статический ip работает все отлично.
