QNAP TS-212-E Diskless System Network Storage

1 out of 5 eggs On 2nd Thought 09/16/2014

This review is from: QNAP TS-212-E Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: It works well, if you don't need to access it outside your LAN or by more than 1 person

Cons: It is worthless if you need to access it outside the LAN by more than 1 person or if you need actual human support.

Other Thoughts: So if you see my review below you'll see I was generally happy with this NAS. That was while I was using it only on the local network. Still good for that purpose. The problems arise when you try to access it outside the LAN and on the web via other PCs. If you want to access it with just the account you use to setup the device in their cloud service it works fine. Also works fine on a cell phone via their qfile app. Want to access it via the user accounts you created with proper security so that each user sees what you want from their own interface, forget it. Support doesn't answer the phone or emails, they direct you to a forum with about as much "help". I've followed every tutorial, every forum post, every web search. Mind you I have setup dozens of NAS previously, am VERY familiar with port forwarding, UPnP, you name it. I even tried a different brand of router all together, nada.

To sum up, if you want it to run locally, not a bad choice.

If you want any worthwhile support or to use it by more than 1 person (with any security at all) outside the office, go elsewhere. In fact, run elsewhere, fast.

4 out of 5 eggs Solid little NAS, with exceptions 09/06/2014

This review is from: QNAP TS-212-E Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: Work well with a wide variety of drives, decent options for additional apps, very easy to setup and configure

Cons: Not the fastest NAS out there, limited RAM/CPU power for more demanding functions

Other Thoughts: Overall I've been pretty happy with these units. If you need a simple network file share this would definitely fit the bill. If you're looking for something more high powered or need very high speeds you might want to look up the higher end models as it's pretty easy to max out the CPU in these. Some nice media sharing options built in and it was very easy to configure (plug it in, turn it on, use the qfinder app and follow the prompts to insert drives and configure).

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Worked exactly as intended, run cool and low power

Cons: Not the fastest drives out there

Other Thoughts: I've already got an array of these drives from a previous order about a year or so ago. At that time I had to RMA a few new drives due to defects. Happy to say this time around NewEgg shipped them quickly and in individual boxes and after full surface scan testing all of the drives (5) were defect free and 100% functional. No issues creating the arrays and they run cool and just a bit faster than the original generation drives. Couldn't be happier!
