Darn....I've used Synology for a long time, but thought QNAP was finally getting their act together.

A quick read of the recent reviews however, suggest that it's the same old QNAP. A better price than most Synology servers (which are too expensive IMO) but probably not better real value. I can't recommend it, but YMMV.

I am using the TS-431. Works perfectly so far but cannot seem to get Plex server running smoothly. Others have this issue and nobody seems to know how to resolve it... in case you're planning to use this for Plex

Synology has arm and atom cpu while qnap is cheaper and built with celeron (x86). Qnap has virtualization support. I don't see any synology alternatives to this unit for sane price.

Look at the plex compatibility list: https://docs.google.com/spreadshe...=314388488
TS-431 is totally different model with lower ARM CPU. It can't transcode even 480p.

Read the first review on your link. Virtualization has been removed in the most recent update.

Additionally, while I can't confirm it myself, Synology's software is still purportedly better according to everything I've read. Don't misunderstand me, I'm not against QNAP, they just don't seem to deliver to the same quality level regardless of what chip they use, and that's too bad because Synology needs the competition.

N.B.- I don't use mine for transcoding/Plex...

I've had an older QNAP and a new Synology box (DS214play). If you're not Linux savvy but you plan on using Transmission and other third party apps, I found QNAP to be easier. Things didn't work out of the box with Synology -- lots of command line stuff.

I read the review and the reviewer must have had a bad upgrade or something because I have used the 2-bay version and have upgraded just a few weeks ago and had no problems with the Virtualization software. In fact there was just an update to the Virtualization software a couple weeks ago.

Synology doesn't have virtualization station. Qnap does. Depending how deep your pockets go you can get one that you can upgrade the cpu and ram. And hdmi oh shit lol

I got a qnap that's got a arm. w/e it was slickdealz cheap 3 years ago. But I've been meaning to ask someone. How do you like virtualization station? If synology don't get its shit together I'll make the next upgrade a qnap with virtualization station capable

I think symbology has become like Apple in some ways; they just keep reselling the same thing every year for high prices and expect people to upgrade. I've been hoping QNAP steps it up and would like a better and cheaper alternative.

Would this be fast enough to use as a file server to work off of for video editing?

Yup synology sure does copy apple so much all the presentations they do have mac's in them. Well they suffer the downfall of diyers. Hackintoshes and build your own synology exist

The virtualization is great. I think it's one of the best features. I can run an Ubuntu server for whatever usage I want. The only thing would be to upgrade the RAM. It's very easy to import an Image into the software and get it up and running in no time.
