1 out of 5 eggsreceived DOA

Pros: none, unit received DOA. - 1 egg

Cons: Received DOA. I have purchased 4 units for work and one for home. The fifth one I received DOA. Not acceptable.

Other Thoughts: will wait for replacement to comment.

5 out of 5 eggsRAID Config Thoughts

Pros: Just a few comments to RAID configuration. I have this system in the mail and will load with four 3TB enterprise drives. Research indicates that RAID 5 should ONLY be used if storage space is your absolute highest performance. Read/Write suffers due to the parity overhead. The gurus I read it from say RAID 10 is the only way to go if performance and fault tolerance overshadow space.
I see many reviews here where folks have set up RAID 5, and I presume that might be 3 drive with hot swap.

Cons: I've only read about firmware issues with MAC's AFP. I will test and review as I have a mixed network.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, user-friendly product

Pros: Easy to use QTS OS that gives you complete control of your device from anywhere.

Great features that work as designed.

I use this device inside a Windows domain along with apple products and it works each and every time with no issues. Hyper-V and VMware work like a charm.

Mobile apps that let you manage the system and its contents from anywhere.

Ability to view and share any media type to anyone, anywhere at any time. I stream my movie collection to my Android from anywhere - have not used Netflix since this went online.

Backups. Thank you for giving me the ability to retain the data once its deleted on network drives (can be configured for how long), backup of the entire OS configuration and simple replication to external devices / cloud space.

Cons: Mobile apps still can use a facelift and some tweaking. Combine the half a dozen apps into one since they all serve the same basic purpose.

Price - while the OS is great the hardware is not exactly screaming but is more then sufficient for what's it designed to do.

Other Thoughts: Final Grade - Solid A.

Setting up is easy. Upgrading to larger drives without loosing the raid or data is simple.

For IT folks who are looking to merge their thirst for IT knowledge (Hyper-V, VMware, domains, NAS ...) and simplicity of storage and media unit all in one - this solution is it. I downsized my entire configuration to this, 1 host each for Hyper-V and VMware, switch and router. This provides the storage that is truly flexible in every way.

While many features are available through other sources - this is great all in one solution that easy to manage

3 out of 5 eggsShould have bought a Drobo

Pros: Populated with 4x Seagate NAS 4TB drives in a RAID5 configuration, it's relatively fast (able to more or less saturate a gigabit link for large-file transfers--up in the ~80MB/s range). The 4.x firmware has a GREAT web interface--it looks and functions like a windowed desktop, and is almost shockingly fast taking that into account. Relatively easy to configure. A decent selection of add-on services like Transmission (BitTorrent), Plex, media servers, and a variety of web things like Joomla or Zen cart. Direct video output to a TV via HDMI. Can be easily upgraded to 3GB RAM. Network recycle bin feature is great (saves deleted files on the server side, and purges them on a set timer, plus has granular control to not save particular extensions you specify--.tmp and such).

Cons: SEVERE known but undocumented firmware bugs with AFP. I got it to use as a fileserver for my Macs, Time Machine server for my Mac backups, and iTunes media server to host my iTunes library, all of which I had previously been doing with a Mac Mini, and due mostly to firmware bugs it currently fails somewhat or completely at all of those tasks.

The 4.0.5 (current) firmware has a bug where files being copied to the server via AFP (at least from 10.9) or even just accessed (probably due to metadata update) will get silently corrupted occasionally--somewhere between 0.1% and 1% of the time. There is no indication this has happened--the file is just toast when you go to open it later. If I hadn't done a diff after copying 100K files, I never would have known some of them were corrupt.

QNAP knows about this bug, but for some baffling reason does not have any indication on the firmware download page that AFP is very, very seriously broken.

Time Machine also doesn't work under 10.9, probably for the same reason.

Their tech support claims that these issues will be fixed in a 4.1.0 firmware update some time in early 2014 (the current beta of 4.1.0 does *not* fix them), but even if so the fact remains that they've left the current version of the firmware live, with about as serious of a bug as a NAS could possibly have, with no note whatsoever to that effect.

On an unrelated note, the freeware that provides the iTunes server functionality does work if all you want to do is provide access to your files to iTunes running on a computer. It will not, however, serve media of any kind to an AppleTV, nor does it understand the iTunes library format, so you just get a list of audio/video files, not any playlists you might have created. Depending on your needs this makes it somewhere between good enough and useless for that purpose (although I could blame Apple for a difficult-to-decipher protocol/library format, that doesn't change this product's utility to me).

Also crashed on me once so far while deleting a bunch of files via the web interface, which was disconcerting.

Other Thoughts: Given the AFP bug and limitations of the iTunes server, I'm wishing I'd just gotten a Drobo 5N--for the same price as the QNAP, it has an extra drive bay (for either more space or an extra disk of redundancy), presumably working AFP (or if not, it's no worse), and since the iTunes server doesn't do what I wanted anyway I wouldn't be losing anything.

Mostly, though, the fact that QNAP has a known silent-data-loss bug in shipping firmware and decided not to put a warning on the download page has soured me to the entire company. I'm simply not going to purchase anything even remotely mission-critical from a company that irresponsible in the future. Honestly, I can't believe a company in the NAS business would do that.

Heck, I would have been surprised enough that the 4.1.0 beta on their site in which the bug isn't fixed doesn't have it listed as a known issue. Yes, it's a beta, but when something is that critically broken you'd think it would be mentioned.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat except as a Plex Server

Pros: First and foremost, I will say that if you want a great NAS, this is it. For home, I couldn't be happier except for one or two things. I bought this on Black Friday from a competitor for $150 off what Newegg offered (wasn't on sale), but it's the same price now more or less everywhere. I would have preferred NE if I had the choice.

Ease to setup, packed with features, the cloud apps work perfect. I love the interface over Synology. I have only been able to make it chug twice. It is quiet in my HTPC area. It does its job well.

HD Station is a GREAT tool, but could be better if there was a Plex player app. You need to upgrade ram if you want to use Chrome to the fullest extent, but it otherwise works well. I LOVE the remote control app.

The Photo Station app is incredibly useful for my 100GB+ archive of photos. It does tagging, albums, etc well. Could be a touch faster/more optimized for performance.

Cons: My only complaint is not so much the NAS's fault. You simply can't transcode 1080P or 720P video in Plex. It just won't happen. The CPU maxes out on ffmpeg process. I also can't figure out how to kill a process other than to SSH or full restart. They need to add that option or make it more apparent. The CPU is not enough for transcode. I am using redundant Plex servers through the house instead on traditional desktop hardware.

Would have been nice to have 4 ports for ethernet because I saturate the 2 with 5 people and 20 connected devices. It's not noticeable unless we all are doing large file transfers at the same time.

You need more ram. At idle with services turned off, you already utilize 50% of the memory. Plex scans and Chrome will chew through your ram. Upgrade to 3GB. My current config uses 60-70% utilization on average, but I removed Plex.

The download manager needs to be able to connect through a proper FTP connection so I can just browse and download. I have to use a workaround otherwise.

Time machine backups are limited to 1 for all I can see. I was hoping to have multiple for the several Macs in the house, but only I really care about backups so it doesn't matter that much.

It takes 5 minutes to go from reboot to ready. This may be just initializing the RAID.

Other Thoughts: All in all, at $500 + the 4x3TB WD REDs (purchased from Newegg) turns out to about $1k. I don't consider it a bad investment. It is chockfull of features, and is a decent enough performer.

I had a cheap Synology for a while. Dual core atom is the bare minimum I would suggest. I really want to get a more powerful unit when money allows and I need space. I currently have 7.4TB free on my RAID 5. No rush as of yet.

For $650 it is a better bargain than the Pro version. Unless you really need an LCD and locking trays, this is the way to go. The new models may be a touch better, but if there is a significant difference in price, I'd suggest this one.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat NAS, Terrible Media Player

Pros: Great All around NAS. Lots of features. QTS is a really nice web management OS.

Cons: Screen Tearing in XBMC it's not worth using. There is apparently intel driver issue that prevents XBMC from playing most video codecs correctly.
Kind of pricey.

Other Thoughts: I probably would have bought a less featured NAS if I had known that XBMC doesn't work.

5 out of 5 eggsNice box

Pros: This thing has speed, features and ease of use to satisfy any home use you can throw at it.

Cons: They have precanned shares that can't be renamed or deleted. The backup utility assumes that you have another QNAP drive or compliant drive.

Other Thoughts: I don’t normally write reviews, but I think I will here. What can I say …. I bought this for the primary reason of replacing my current NAS because it takes 2 ½ hours to backup my secondary computer. The other computers don’t have as many files, but they’re close enough. Well the QNAP blows it out of the water. I’ve reduced 2 ½ hours to 20 some minutes, getting at times 800Mb +/- write speed. But was disappointed with a little slower read times +/-.It is near the speed of computer to computer speed. I’m using 2 X 3TB WD Red drives in a Raid1 configuration. Once I get some more green I’ll get 2 more and put it in a Raid5. Once these drives are in I should have 8.3TB or so of space. This should last me an eternity, but then again I remember when I told my brother that a 110MB drive would last forever. Consult QNAP’s web site for compatible drives. Remember that a raid configuration doesn’t free you from having proper backups

To get these speeds it is not right out of the box. Once I powered it up to make sure it basically worked, I added a 2Meg memory stick to max it out at 3G of memory. I doesn’t cost much if you supply your own, but QNAP’s memory is probably only for businesses that want factory upgrades. Then I tweaked the Jumbo frames and decided on 7K frames after trial and error. I also gain some speed by not using any of the supplied apps, except I’ll activate the DNLA app.once I get time.

The only minus so far is that I can’t seem to figure out how to configure Sync, their automated backup program. My current NAS’ firmware seems to be out dated and doesn’t want to talk to the QNAP. I’m still investigating this and I’m sure there is a solution. I also would have liked to name my own shares to go with the purpose of them. Instead there are like 6 shares that you can’t delete or rename. I really don’t like someone telling me how my share structure should be.

As far as noise, it doesn’t make any more than my current pair of NAS’ that are sitting next to it. For my purposes the TS-469L is more than enough. No need to spend the extra for the PRO version. From what I remember reading this drive is meant for the high end home market or for small businesses. It should handle anything you can throw at it at home. I’ll put in the usual declaimer that your actual throughput will vary to your network capability and apps you run.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Thing Since Sliced Bread!

Pros: I bought this device to run an internal VMWare VSphere environment and to handle some misc storage needs. This thing has so many bells and whistles it's unreal. It has a bunch of apps that can be used to eliminate deploying multiple machines to handle small tasks. Some examples are a built in SMTP server, SFTP server, Web Server, Open SSL VPN server, remote file manager, and more. Some of these features aren't full products but they get the job done

Cons: One annoying thing I found is that the NAS comes with two NICs and they can be trunked and teamed for HA/Performance but can only contain 1 IP address per interface. You cannot subinterface and create multiple IP addresses if you want the device directly accessible.

Other Thoughts: Great device. Highly recommended.

4 out of 5 eggsEasy Set-Up

Pros: Very nicely made NAS box with a ton of features. I use this primarily as a file server at home. I have 4 3TB WD Red NAS hard drives running in RAID 5 in this box. Set-up is a breeze and was as simple as popping in the drives and running the set-up disc. The default choice was RAID 5 for 4 drives, so I went with an automatic set-up. This thing is great for sharing files and they have a lot of awesome android/iphone apps to help manage your media collection. I have yet to try a lot of the media playback over the HDMI port, but I will test that out soon. What is nice about this unit is that they natively support a variety of networking standards from apple, microsoft, and unix/linux. If you want to have an itunes server to stream music, done. If you want to see your pictures library on your tv, android/iphone, ipad/tablet, done. Streaming video is the only thing that seems to be a con based on the processor speeds..

Cons: Some of the QPKG applications can cause severe performance issues. The google cloud storage app seems to cause issues. I was able to transfer files to the box at 11mb/s and then when I turned on some more QPKG's, it reduced down to 5 or 6mb/s. Because the processor is not as beefy as high-end NAS boxes ($1000+), you can't take full advantage of some of the applications. The most notable app where that is an issue is the PLEX media server app. PLEX states on its site that you have to have a some minimum processor requirements to be able to convert 1080p content on the fly or to upconvert to 1080p.

Other Thoughts: Can you get a cheaper unit to serve as a RAID5 file server? Yes.
Can you get as many capabilities from a unit under $700.00? No way

The QPKG interface is updated often and the applications are reviewed by QNAP to ensure they are okay to put on the NAS. Having said that, a lot of the applications have not been regularly updated so it could be an issue with the QNAP firmware updates that cause some performance issues when used with outdated apps. Only time will tell if that holds true.
