Great Device!

Pros: Easy to set up
Good price
Reliable (after a few updates)
Great User Interface

Cons: Bright LEDs! They work great as a night light...

Other Thoughts: Currently using it with two Seagate 4TB Hard Drives (ST4000DM000).

2.5 TB is set aside as an apple "Time Machine" and the rest is used for my Windows computer. The Apple devices It had issues connecting to it at first but QNAP fixed that with a firmware update like a year and a half ago. They've made a ton of improvements to it's firmware and now it runs great!

We've had it for almost two years now without issue.

Still working

Pros: Does everything I need it to do. Havent had any major problems with it so far. The backup feature is great and has saved me a couple times.

Cons: Not really a con as a whole. Sometimes after I reboot my computer, the NAS doesnt show up in the network at all. I can get to it by simply typing the name of it in the address bar, but its just a minor inconvenience.

Other Thoughts: Id say if something would happened to this one, I would most likely get another one.

Decent performance for price

Pros: very stable and oh so much better than nay mainstream comsumer brands such as linksys, netgear, etc..
many more support protocols such as iscsi than the consumer brands too. Most NASs i tested were anywhere from 10-30mb/s and this QNAP clocks in about 60 via ftp and samba.

Cons: pricey, could build a small itx system for the same price with bsd for much better performance. Only reason to purchase a good NAS is for power consumption

Very easy to set up and use

Pros: The setup was a breeze, and QNAP's firmware/web interface is very user friendly. I had never set up a RAID array before, but I wanted some data redundancy to protect some of my more important files from hard disk failure. I opted for two 3TB drives. Installing the drives took minutes and formatting them into a RAID1 (mirroring) array was as easy as the click of a button. The web interface looks great and QNAP is always releasing updates for it, which are a breeze to install if you use the auto update feature. It was very easy to set up the drive as a DLNA media server and stream my media to my smart TV. You can also one-click install apps from the web interface for other features, such as web servers, download tools, surveillance tools, CMS, developer tools, SQL servers, GIT repository, etc. I highly recommend this product.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend placing the unit on carpet because the intake fan is on the bottom of the unit and causes the temps to raise up a little bit. I recently moved it to the corner of the top of my desk behind my center monitor so it is still out of sight but better ventilated. My room is at about 76F right now and the unit is holding steady at 43C (hard drives between 40-41C)

Good for what it is.

Pros: 2 HDD bays
RAID 0 supported
TONS of features and options
CloudNAS
Android/iOS app
Price
Gigabit ethernet

Cons: SATA II max
Install instructions a little vague
Requires certain ports on your router to be open to access NAS from Cloud or phone app, which may or may not open on your router
Phone app crashes a LOT!! Has limited codex support
White? In a full black setup, it sticks out like a sore thumb (just kidding, this isn't a real con ;-) )

Other Thoughts: I have NO issues recommending this NAS to anyone. A little confusing for beginners, but enough options for most people in a Home NAS setup. Customer support is pretty great too. Fast, courteous service.

Awesome WebGui

Cons: TwonkyMedia QKPG could be better.

Good but not great

Pros: I bought this primarily for storing movies and streaming across the LAN and internet. Setup is simple and straightforward. Web based interface is a pleasure to use. Access control is thorough and allows you to have a detailed level of control over different users (specific folders, remote access, personal folders on NAS). Does not lag when streaming 4 different movies (4-7gb each) simultaneously.

Cons: The QNAP mobile app is restricted to streaming mp4s only that are less than 2gb in size. Means that I cannot stream 99% of my movies when I am away from the house. On the qnap forums, multiple posts have asked about these issues but the company has either chosen not to reply or shifted the blame on apple. Other App Store apps don't have these problems.

Other Thoughts: Running 2x 3TB seagate hdds in JBOD mode for a 6TB capacity.
