2 out of 5 eggsForced use of RAID and no longer a hot-swap unit or ideal for off-site backups

Pros: Tons of features

Cons: Mandatory to use RAID

Other Thoughts: I debated 3 stars because this thing is chock full of amazing features but I went with 2 stars because of the new forced mandate of using RAID and the file system corruption that ensued causing a complete and unrecoverable of loss of my data. Fortunately I had an offsite backup that was 3 months old from my old TS-439 Pro. You can no longer have offsite backups with these new storage pool devices.

These new Qnap units mandate that you use RAID and give you no choice of using a plain Linux/Unix ext4/3/2 partitions. They call this the Storage Pool which allows you to aggregate many disk and assign a logical volume to them. Indeed very handy and useful; but only if one needs it. This new Storage Pool is essentially a forced use of an ext4 only partition on the primary data partition and ext2 on the smaller system partitions with LVM (Logical Volume Manager) slapped on top of the ext2/4 partitions and finally encapsulated in a RAID array. Even if you format the disk as a single disk, it is still a RAID array. If this Qnap unit dies, you cannot take the disk out and slap them into any Linux/Unix machine and get access to your data. You’ll have to get familiar with mdadm commands and reconstruct the RAID array and you can do that only if your SATA controller on the new machine supports RAID. A royal PIA!!!

I’m a prior owner of a Qnap TS-439 Pro that does not have the storage pool implementation and I used this as a backup server primarily. I then had two other disks in the device part-time that contained a mirror copy of the primary drive. One was kept in a fireproof safe and backed up every weekend. The other was an off-site backup that I kept at my parents’ house. With 1TB of data, the cloud was not an option. This offsite backup was actually two disks that I alternated every 1 to 3 months. I used command line rsync to keep these drives updated and everything worked beautifully.

If you are looking for a hot-swap unit to manage backups, these new Qnap units are certainly not for you. You have to keep your drives in this thing 100% of the time and cannot take them out. I am now building a Linux (CentOS) hot-swap server for my house. Using a Corsair 550D case and an Icy Dock hot swap cage, this is replacing my Qnap.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best although it costs

Pros: After reading Maximum PCs article on the 5 best NAS servers this clearly had the best performance and feature set, I was not let down. Beats Synology too. It feeds beautifully even in my fussy WD netflix DNLA etc TV inputs with MKVs avis mpgs mp4s and just about anything I want. Although many people use Twonky which QNAP has built in, the built in Multimedia Program does fine without any issues. Uses Qfile Androids and I-Macs (mac) both work great too. MXplayer is the goto along with Qfile to play movies stored in the QNAP. QNAP has a Intel 2 core chip and 2gigs ram. Much better then the Risc chips that all the others use with 256-512megs being the norm.

Cons: Expensive, no drives included

Other Thoughts: Recommend using WD Black ENTERPRISE. These have features designed to work in raid. The WD Reds are no good and if you look up the reveiws they have a very high failure rate. Why would you spend a lot of money for this type of unit to throw it away with bad HDs. RAID 5 recommended.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Media Server/Backup

Pros: Runs Intel i3 dual core instead of weaker alternatives. Proprietary Linux and CLAM antivirus integrated for extra security. Offers every known feature under the sun. USE WD ENTERPRISE BLACKS. . Excellent DNLA support. QNAP's own "Multimedia Station" for media streaming works flawlessly (With WD's notorious live streaming behaving itself). Unless you need cross referencing etc. Twonky has more overhead. I can stream MKVs, avis, mp4, mpg, Has a Plex app and Twonkey for those who want more.

Cons: Expensive. No manual. It is ridiculous that a $1200 unit comes with a PDFed manual. Thank goodness there are online print shops that will crank you out your own for about $35. Its the only way to learn all of the feature sets.The sync hardware is not backup hardware. Best solution is to image the backup to a directory in the qnap volume

Other Thoughts: After you load the hardware, start the unit and load the DVD on your PC. It all gets done from there.The WD Red line has been a disaster and if your going to spend this kind of money get the best drives you can. Seagates and all WDs except Blacks and enterprise fail at an alarming rate. Hitachi rates better but that is a non starter for many. WD Blacks are not optimized to work together. Enterprise rocks. 8 bought from new Egg 8 still working, some of which are 6 years old,
