Pros: I have 4 of this model in multiple computers and sizes. 120Gb, 160Gb and 300Gb.
Never had a problem. i do keep the firmware updated as the original firmware had a problem. I started buying in 2011 when Intel extended the warranty period to 5 years from the original 3 year period.
I have to assume that those with problems had the original firmware and never updated it as sudden death was a problem with the original firmware.
Cons: Can't really think of any.
Other Thoughts: After buying the first one I could not wait to switch all the computers to a SSD boot drive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: QNAP TS-220 Diskless System Network Storage
Pros: I have two of these currently with no problems using WDC Red 2TB drives, Knock wood.
I am thinking of getting a third set of these with the current promotion with the 2 WDC 2Tb Red drives. Decent speed and easy setup. No Tools required. I do not hear them running, Nice and Quiet.
Software control allows me to shut down the NAS when I do not need it from the computer. This should save some wear and tear on the drives and the cooling fan.
Cons: None at the present time.They just work when needed.
Other Thoughts: I'm happy enough I'm planning to get a third set of these with the WDC Red drives. I'm using these for secure Data backup due to mirrored Drives. I'm going to get a third for future usage despite the original two not being currently full.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I currently have four of these in two Qnap TS-220 Network Storage units with no problems. Knock Wood. I'm happy enough with the Qnap WDC Red combo I'm thinking of ordering a third set of them.
Cons: None that I can think of. They installed, formatted and work OK.
Other Thoughts: Time will tell just how good these are. UPS service in this must be better than elsewhere. The driver follows instructions and puts them inside the porch, Knocks on the front door as a notification they are here. The shipping packaging looks like new when delivered. Knock Wood, I've never had a bad drive from Newegg. Maybe the local distribution center is better than others? Packaging is good. The last Drive came in a custom type of bubble wrap that was shaped for the hard drive and was a perfect fit in the box.READ FULL REVIEW
