Pros: This machine is fast, it replaced an acer AMD A-8 machine that I had, that started failing to see the HD. The speed isn't terribly noticeable, but it does seem a bit faster. I use this as a development machine (Java), and I wanted a machine that had a high resolution main display, and could drive two other screens. This one definitely fits the bill.
Cons: Like others I had problems with the windows update, it tried to do all of them as one massive batch (99 updates), and after 10 hours of working on it, it failed, and reverted. The next day I let it do a couple at a time, and then told it to reboot, so it didn't fail, and somehow it made it through the whole list that day. I then upgraded to 8.1, which worked just fine.
Other than windows, there were a few other small things...
It is not easy to replace the hard drive, I was going to put in a SDD, and there is a cable that seems like it is glued to the current hard drive.
The HDMI slot and the svga slot are too close together. In order to have two external displays I had to cut off the side of the svga connector and hammer down the metal to use it. It would have been nice if they would have planned for people who might actually want to use both.
Other Thoughts: I like this machine overall, it fits the bill almost perfectly for me, it was hard finding another laptop that had more than one slot for external display, and I didn't want to have a usb slot taken up by a display port.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: QNAP TS-201 2-Bay, RAID 1 Hot Swappable All-in-One NAS
Pros: Easy to connect to from windows, or web/ftp interface. The user & group management work well. Setup was easy, and haven't had any problems since set up
Cons: web interface can be slow, but not horrible. Wish I could set up SSH to the box, haven't tried to find a way, but not readily apparent.READ FULL REVIEW
