5 out of 5 eggsQNAP makes a quality NAS!

This review is from: QNAP TS-420 Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: I originally purchased this little guy last year to keep all of my college lab files and some mod folders that me and my friends would readily be able to access as well as some basic movie/tv streaming. With x4 WD RED 3TB drives, this device has performed phenomenally with almost all challenges I've thrown at it. Thank you QNAP for a great product!

Cons: the only con I've come across with my QNAP NAS is when transferring a large amount of data, the rest of the system seems to bog down (significantly) and accessing other resources becomes a very painful task.

5 out of 5 eggsPersonal NAS

This review is from: QNAP TS-420 Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: Uses standard RAID configurations 0,1,5,6. It was extremely easy to setup and configure. The built in tools work seamlessly with all my wireless devices (iPad 2, iPhone 4s, and Nokia 920).

Cons: Rebuild Time Is Slow.... With that being said, online user group had a simple config change to the root OS that fixed the issue. The original setting on the unit is deliberately slow to allow other drives to operate with only limited performance degeneration. Knowing this, a minor alteration of the config file and my RAID 5 primary disk was rebuilt quickly.

Other Thoughts: Great Product.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent NAS

This review is from: QNAP TS-420 Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: Easy to set up. Admin interface easy to use. Lots of apps and modules to install to extend functionality. Ability to bind the two NICs. Ability to upgrade drive capacity in place (Using raid 10, just need to follow procedure and replace each drive one by one). VPN functionality, cloud access outside of network.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I used to run a server at home for the purpose of file storage, backup center, media center, etc... This replaces that system at a fraction of the cost and the size.

1 out of 5 eggsWhere's that unlike button?

This review is from: QNAP TS-420 Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: Relatively inexpensive; quality hardware

Cons: "easy to setup" Yeah; um not even a little bit Right at the start it makes you download firmware which I'm sure is OK for 'most' people but 2 hours later maxing out my cell I finally got to the desktop

It has a nice feature to plug a HD into the front and you can configure it to import or export to the drive automatically which is nice; but it's a PITA to setup and it creates a folder and imports the entire drive into that single folder completely disregarding the hierarchy on the drive making that feature completely useless to me

The Mac support/time machine is pretty atrocious When I got it to work on AFP the AFP share didn't show any of the files that did show on SMB

Time machine works after you use the finder's 'connect to' feature but connecting directly by clicking on network is spotty at best I get lots of delays and failed transfers on AFP *and* FTP For the money I'd much rather have a DAS This one is going back for a synology

Other Thoughts: I'm using it with 80211ac and gigabit ethernet and it's not exactly responsive in the interface

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice!!

This review is from: QNAP TS-420 Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: Easy to set up, if you are new to NAS or a novice, qnap has many nice apps to help you find your nas on the network and set it up through qfinder. Once set up and firmware updated it really is very nice. I had an older qnap and set up a few at my office, and these things are scalable, very compatible with macs/pc/linux, transfer speeds actually aren't bad. I can transfer usually at 38MB/write speed which is pretty good for the price. Many tools including antivirus, network traffic monitor, smart etc. Qnap has a pretty good library of apps to install on this thing which I use only 3 or so. Also, dual nics and it's pretty quiet.

Cons: It didn't come with a hat?

Other Thoughts: I have used these things for years and they are very reliable. I enjoy the "os" they have on it, very very user friendly and you can customize it with wallpapers and cutesy things like that

3 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: QNAP TS-420 Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: Looks like a great NAS and am looking forward to getting one that works.

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: 3 stars (instead of 0) only because Newegg immediately issued RMA and shipping label. Shoprunner free returns are great!
