Get it! You won't be sorry 02/16/2011
AMAZING!!!. This thing does everything except maybe your pancakes for breakfast. Nearly silent, small footprint, runs cool, feature packed. Interface is very intuitive. I love it! I run it as FTP to do nightly (CRON via cPanel) backups of all my websites. Serves as my media server and desktop backup server for now. So many more options to still explore and implement. I have it packed with 4x320 WD Blacks and 4x500GB WD Blacks setup as 2 RAID-6 arrays. I can experience loss of 2 drives per array and still not loose data, you've got to love that. Totally love the form factor and very low energy usage.
None I can see.
Don't be stupid and order 3.5" drives with this. This unit requires 2.5 SATA drives (laptop sized). I only buy drives that are 7200 RPM, don't waste money on anything slower. If you need lots of Terabytes than go with unit that supports 3.5" drives that are 3TB each if that is what you need. Synology DS1511+ here on NewEgg is a great unit with great reviews. I just wanted the 2.5" drive form factor. (think lowwww power usage, no heat)
Make sure the first thing you do is update to the latest firmware/software available from QNAP. A lot more features available with the new software, even the manual tripled in size to cover all additional stuff.
