This review is from: QNAP TS-221 Diskless System Network Storage
Good performance for the price.
Unit's Ethernet interface failed. When that happens, you are hosed. In hind sight, a failback one could have implemented (while the unit was working) would have been to exploit the fact that the unit can utilize a USB WiFi dongle as an alternative network interface. Then, if/when the wired Ethernet failed, one could still (albeit much slower) access the unit. Various forums, including QNAPs, indicate this failure mode isn't all that rare.
So if you buy this unit, you probably should buy the extended warranty.
