This review is from: QNAP TS-869-PRO-US Diskless System 8-Bay, All-in-One NAS
Pros: It's a NAS. It's a cloud. It's a DLNA media server. I can access it from any PC on my network. Or my iPhone. Or my i-Pad. It's an FTP server. It has integrated antivirus. It does all that and more. I love it. It is expandable, can do RAID level migration, RAID 0,1,5,6 or 10 and it has both hot swap and hot spare capability! Make sure you use NAS rated drives. I currently have 5 WD Red 3TB drives and one Seagate NAS rated drive in a RAID 6 array and one WD Red 3TB marked as a standby in a slot.
Cons: My only con is that this thing is capable of doing so much that it is overwhelming. It can do things that only a really techie person can understand...such as an IT or SYS ADMIN.
That means it can do everything that I, a home user, wants it to do and more.
Other Thoughts: If you want a NAS and don;t wnat to have to buy again for a long time, this is the one to get. 8 bays, easy to set up, looks great, easy to install and remove drives, easy to use GUI menu through your browser, and iPhone / i-Pad access makes this thing a big winner. I even have my own FTP server and cloud hosted by this beast.
