5 out of 5 eggsRock solid NAS

Pros: Fantastic unit, serves all my needs for file storage, backup system, media server, etc. I've owned this unit since 6/2009, and QNAP support over that time has been great. I use it to stream movies/tv shows to 3 different rooms, stream MP3s and internet radio to a Squeezebox Duet, backup all my computers to it, etc. QNAP forums and user community is solid. I currently have 8 1TB Western Digital drives in a RAID5 config, but I am hoping to upgrade to 8 2TB drives in a RAID6 config. I've already gone through having 2 drives die before, getting each drive RMA'd and replaced, and rebuilding the RAID array. Note that rebuilding an array of this size is time consuming, but not to an unexpected/unacceptable level.

Cons: I've had trouble getting Tomcat to work properly with Java - several attempts at rectifying this have proved fruitless.

Other Thoughts: My next NAS will also be a QNAP, and may actually be a second TS-809 Pro!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: This thing is everything that I needed in a NAS box. Plenty of options to do almost anything you want. It has a VGA port and reconizes USB keyboards to access the command line.

Cons: Pricey. I had a problem with a couple of slots at first but it turned out to be faulty hard drives. I RMA'd them and all problems solved. It can get a little warm when you have it fully loaded with hard drives under load.

Other Thoughts: I use this as a movie and backup server. This is plenty fast enough for most of my needs.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid NAS

Pros: Large capacity, quiet, tons of features. The uPnP server works extremely well, I was able to turn off my uPnP server, and just use the one built into the NAS.

Cons: You are at Qnap's mercy in terms of the software you can run on the NAS. Their available QPKG software packages are great, but each piece of software is updates as part of the firmware, not on it's own. So you are forced to use the version of the software they have available, not the version that you want to use.

Other Thoughts: It's overkill, but then, I used to think my Terastation was overkill when I bought that 10 years ago (For the same amount I spent on this unit, including the HD's). I am a firm believe in you get what you pay for. When it comes to hardware you intend to use for many years, spending the extra money is well worth it. I did buy a discounted unit that has been opened/ returned to newegg tho. (I don't mind spending money, but I am not going to pass up a deal). So thanks to one of the negative reviewers that returned their unit, it now has a good home and it is working wonderfully.

P.S. Please send me the key for the drive bay doors.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Unit!!

Pros: This is such a good unit. I'm a home user upgrading from the Qnap TS-101:
- easy to use, easy to understand interface
- incredible power
- extremely quiet, even when right next to it
- very fast data transmission
- clean, sleek looking unit
- has a high quality feel to it
- formatted two, 2TB WD hard drives in 30 minutes-amazing!!
- solid Raid function. I'm using Raid 1
- seamless encryption
- excellent documentation
- I can go on and on... features galore

Cons: No jumbo frame support but the transmission speed is so fast you would not know it. I read some articles that Qnap may add this with a free firmware update soon

2 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review

Pros: QNAP quickly issued an RMA #.

Cons: Unfortunately, I got a bad unit and had to RMA it. I do have one BIG complaint about the unit. The web site allows you to monitor CPU temperature. Due to a bad bay, my unit was constantly rebuilding and the CPU temperature got HOT. UNFORTUNATELY, the fan control never turned up the fan because even though the CPU was getting HOT, the overall temperature was normal and the fan speed is controlled by either the general unit temperature or the hard drive temperature. As soon as I forced the fans to run at high, the CPU temperature came back down... but this leaves me not trusting the fans to monitor the temperature properly. The fans should turn on high if the CPU temperature is HOT.

Other Thoughts: Once again, I posted this comment (regarding the CPU temperature problem) on QNAPs site and there has been no response. I hope this doesn't mean they won't fix the issue with a firmware update.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat media server

Pros: QNAP forums are excellent, and well-staffed by QNAP employees. This is a company that listens to their customers.

I bought this in March '09 and as of June have not had any problems streaming high-bandwidth video. I have 4 WD 2TB drives in RAID 5 configuration with no problems (other bays are empty at the moment). I recently had a drive failure and the QNAP emailed an alert to me. The flashing red LED on the bad drive bay made it easy to swap with a new drive, after which online rebuilding commenced without any further intervention on my part.

The drives power down when not in use, and the fan speed is variable with heat. With 4 WD green drives I cannot hear the system from more than a few feet away.

System and drive temps are indicated in the web control panel. I let the room rise to 95*F for about 12 hours and the temp of each drive rose to only 100*F (system temp 102*F). The fan was quite loud at this point. Normal drive temp is about 5*F above ambient.

Cons: While I appreciate the feature-rich web control panel, the large number of links on the main page is a bit overwhelming until you remember the most-used links. Not a big deal, and no other cons that I can think of after 10 weeks' trouble-free use.

Other Thoughts: I have used several other NAS devices from Buffalo (Terastation, Linkstation) but now prefer QNAP. Granted, I have not used this in an environment with many users accessing data at once, but other discussions at the QNAP forums indicated this is the fastest of their products (as of April 2009). The CPU is faster and there is more memory available than QNAP's lower-numbered models.

3 out of 5 eggsA nice system with a few faults

Pros: I got my TS-809 in today and configuration has been very simple.

* Fairly responsive community support

Cons: I would have given the product a better rating had it not been for:

* absolutely no response to five attempts at pre-sales / technical support questions prior to buying the system. This was via their web-site form. If they are not going to response to their online form, they should be removed from their website.

* No printed manual and a quick start guide written in a size requiring an electron microscope to read

* Lack of QPKG support of MONO for running .NET applications. Lack of any response to such requests in the forums.

* For such a high price, I expect a company to go the extra mile. Why would any company stick a plastic cover on such an expensive machine. A brushed metal front would have been both appropriate and appreciated.

* Extremely SLOW access via Microsoft File Sharing.

Other Thoughts: It would be nice if the firmware update system had the option of downloading and installing the file from the web. As a raid server, this would certainly be simple enough to do.

SMS messages are widely available via messages to email address such as phonenumber@tmomail.com however, there appears to be no support for this FREE method of sending SMS messages.

Due to a fear of loosing my data, I'm glad to have the box and would get it again, but for the cost I believe it's missing some key features and honestly can't solidly recommend any product made from plastic.

1 out of 5 eggsNot ready for prime time

Pros: Excellent tech support. Easy to update firmware.

Cons: Never could get iSCSI to work. Thruput was never higher than 16Mb/sec (MegaBIT not MegaByte). Tried iSCSI, NFS and Windows Share and never got decent thruput.

iSCSI was a royal PITA. If the target was created but not all space allocated and then connected in Server 2008 or Vista and quick format or full format the drive, the format would fail at 95% with drive full error. If the iSCSI Target was created and all space allocated the build process would also fail at 95% with drive full error.

Other Thoughts: Tech SUpport via IM at 10:45PM on a Friday night!!!! Then the guy took control of my system and worked with it for almost an hour.

It took almost 2 days to get a failure on building a 4TB RAID5 iSCSI target. Very frustrating. Can't get the unit working and I have to eat $255 to return it and get my money back!!!!!!!!!

I wanted to give the unit zero eggs but Newegg doesn't allow that.
