Pros: If you need it Buy it....
Cons: Price is over ,,,,,, over the top man,,,
Overall Review: Need more...
Pros: As describe. has alot of settings and is working good installed with no problems on a Win 10 pro system.
Cons: None at this time..
Overall Review: If you need WiFi and not able to run cable this works out good.
Pros: I have three older hard drives just sitting around, I put them in and have been testing them to see how this unit would react, so far not one hiccup. I'm going to add four Seagate IronWolf Pro ST10000NE0004 10TB 7200 RPM 256MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drives later this week. If all goes well, later I'll add my second TR-004 to my TS-253Be. (according from Qnap Two TR-004 is the max you can add to compatible Qnap Nas systems)
Cons: Not really a con, Four bay unit. Add four drives to start out with. You can't add more drives to expand your raid automatically.
Overall Review: Inexpensive unit to buy got mine for $199.00 Newegg. I would recommend buying the best high end drives, this unit will treat them well.
Pros: Added two of these in my QNAP QM2-2S10G1T Working and running well.
Cons: None at this time.
Pros: Added this to my TS-253Be Unit.. Planning on using the 10G later.
Cons: Found none at this time.
Pros: Sure is fast on my rig...
Cons: Have none, Been running this sense 2018
Pros: Still running this every day.. Bought this in 2010
Pros: Still using this board to this day.... and still running like new..
Cons: Bought this in 2010 wow...
Pros: Still running since I bought this in 2007 and the two Hd's I put in it.. Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD5000KS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive
Cons: Never have had any problems
Pros: Nice little unit. Very well made. I have 4 HGST Deskstar NAS H3IKNAS40003272SN(0S03664) 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" High-Performance Hard Drive for Desktop NAS Systems Bare Drive
Cons: none at this time.
Overall Review: Update... Still running like new and the HD'S. I bought this and the HDs back in 2014
Pros: Needed more memory for my QNAP TS-253Be. It had just the 2GB stick, and on the most part ran okay. But now Runs much better.
Cons: No cons about this product.
Pros: I have never had any problems.. knock on wood,,,,,,
Cons: None so far...,
Overall Review: I would recommend HGST because I have own for over 6 plus years various other TB in size and they are all running like new.
Pros: Very simple to setup and run.. I picked this unit because I needed to setup a Plex environment for all my DVD's. Note: I recommend you get on board with PLEX!
Cons: None that I can think of..
Overall Review: I would indeed recommend this TS-253Be to anyone that would like to setup "Plex Server". Small price, big performance.
Pros: This works as good as my Linksys EA9500 Max-Stream AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router. I had to buy this one (EA9300) due to my Linksys EA9500,, was having problems with the 2.4. Note: Linksys has replaced my EA9500,, thank you..
Cons: No cons... well maybe this is a con.. family and friends tell me " love your Wi-FI " can we move in.... hahahahah
Overall Review: Lots of options, I also have one of theses LINKSYS RE7000 Max-Stream AC1900+ Mu-Mimo W-Fi Range Extender up and running on one end of my house and was very easy to setup. I just bought one more to setup on my other end of my house. Both the Linksys EA9500 and Linksys EA9300 married up with no hiccups. I love it when a plan comes together. Thx Linksys for making great products.
Pros: Have this working with my Linksys EA9500 Max-Stream AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router
Cons: No cons...
Overall Review: After seeing this wok well with my Linksys EA9500 Max-Stream AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router I am buying another to add in my garage,,
Pros: Did find in very good grade B condition. No complaints here..
Pros: Well built unit can't complain, also the pros about this unit, it's easy to install. I have this unit hooked up to my email server which does a variety of other computer back ups, picture file accessing and various other duties. I wanted to see how this unit would run under heavy heavy loads. I had several computers backing up to it and at the same time accessing picture files, unit performed quite well. I was very surprised and it's been running very well with no problems. I would recommend buying one of these units because it's very easy to install and works quite well.
Cons: Did have to be careful on inserting my drives into the lower part of this unit the top two were easy to insert so I don't know exactly what the problem was with that but other than that I was able to insert the drives but had to do it with care
Overall Review: You will need to know how to set it up in windows. I have it running on windows seven professional and when I first received the unit I hooked it up to my windows 10 computer just to see how it would perform under windows 10. I do believe the instructions help you through setup, pretty much straightforward.
Pros: Everything running well. Was able to update to the latest iOS 10.2
Pros: Wow.... Love this... Working like a champ! all my devices are happy now...
Cons: Does get HOT! So here is my solution, I bought these. AC Infinity MULTIFAN S5, Quiet Dual 80mm USB Fan for Receiver DVR Playstation Xbox Computer Cabinet Cooling. theses are great quiet and cools nicely. I just sat it on the top of unit and used the 2.0 USB to power it..
Overall Review: I would recommend this product. I have used Linksys for years and have never had any problems...
Pros: I would recommend this if you have the $$$ and need to PTZ around..
Cons: I think the price is to high.
Overall Review: I would recommend this if you have the $$$ and need to PTZ around..
Pros: Running very well.
Pros: Bought 4 of these and have them in my QNAP TS-420 unit.. Running very well.
Cons: None at this time...
Pros: Have this mounted on the wall in my garage. I have three TRENDnet TV-IP321PI 1280 x 960 MAX Resolution Outdoor 1.3 MP HD PoE Dome IR Network Camera at this time and have had zero problems.
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: Looking into adding more TRENDnet cameras.
Pros: Just works! the camera software is really good and works very well. Bought three of these and they are running well.
Cons: Would be nice if I could mount the camera on the wall and be able to adjust the video. Can only ceiling mount or table mount. Did find some very nice Wall Mount Bracket DS-1258ZJ and have the camera on them.
Pros: Met all my needs.... Needed it for data recovery on four HDD. Installed in spare computer and Special software. Had it work very hard for over a week 24/7
