  • 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 provided. Relatively small size and low power usage. Two large quiet fans pull a good volume of air for cooling. USB 3.0 ports and SATA 6Gbit hot-swap drive bays. Excellent shippin...
  • 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 quite a bit of work. Tall 3.5" drives completely fill the drive trays and probably receive little if any cooling air. If you do not use exactly the correct Intel or Emulex 10...

Box of awesome

Tim K., Newegg
6 January 2012
  • 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.

Niet geschikt als ftp server

Richard, nascenter.nl
30 August 2012
  • Summary: Zonder flink hacken in de standaard software is deze NAS niet geschikt als ftp server. Door de standaard geinstalleerde ftp-server te gebruiken wordt de volledige root vanaf het www rechtstreeks beschikbaar. Het is dus niet mogelijk alleen een bepaalde map te delen. Antwoord van QNAP support hierop was "it's not possible. Sorry for the inconvenience". Wil je deze NAS als web/ftp server gebruiken, laat hem dan links liggen als je niet gedegen kennis van Linux hebt.
