5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Fast, reliable, expandable, easy to use from dummies to power users, flexible

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: The perfect all in one unit that will grow with you.
Extremely flexible: from dummy users (initial setup is literally a 1-page manual, my Mom could do it and it works out of the box) to power users (ultimately you get a Linux under the hood, and you can even modify hardware to some extent).

Want lots of storage for all the content you create, in a safe RAID configuration that will help prevent data loss? Check.
Want all that data available on your very own personal cloud, without monthly $$$ fees for several terabytes of cloud storage? Check.
Want that cloud to also be a media center or a surveillance center? Check.
You happen to start a small business at home and need a starter server with basic services (email, ftp, file server etc)? Check.
You happen to be a developer and need a development server (sql server, version control server etc)? Check.
Want to add functionality to your NAS by writing your own apps for it? Check.
Want to tinker with the OS which is a Linux under covers? Check.
Want to add more RAM to your NAS? Check.

I don't write reviews often, but I've had this guy for about 6 months and couldn't be happier with this product.

5 out of 5 eggsHome NSA / Media Server

Pros: The unit may seem a bit expensive at first, but after using it for a while you will soon notice that the unit is worth every penny. This is a fast unit. Purchased this unit to replace my home server and to replace my media center. This unit does both very well. With the included HDMI and the HD Station with XBMC installed this is a great unit.
I use this unit to back up/sync with files on each computer in the house (Similar to drop box) on a user by user basis. I even have remote family using the sync feature of the unit. It was relatively easy to set up.

It is well constructed. Have the unit set up in a RAID 6 setup. Forced a hard drive failure and replaced the drive, No issues. Rebuilt the raid and was fully functional in 1 day. (4TB of data). I could continue to use the unit during the rebuild with no issues. (Only slight slowing of access time)

Unit also has expansion port should you need to have more than the 8 drives, you can get the 10bay add-on.

Cons: Slow to update the apps inside the QNAP O/S, (Synology is faster at that)
Phone apps are a bit slow to respond, they really could improve on that.
HDMI is 1080p. Wish it was 4k)

Other Thoughts: They are more expensive that others, but with all the features that are packed in to this unit, it was well worth the buy. I would recommend this to anyone looking to have a home NSA and media center. I will be getting the 10bay expansion in the near future. (I have ripped over 250 movies to my unit and it streams them perfectly)

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

Pros: Packed with lots of amazing features. You name it, this thing pretty much has it.

Cons: These new Qnap units force you to use RAID in their new Storage Pool. You have no option for opting out of using RAID and just a plain vanilla Linux partition.

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.
