This deal was previously front page at $219 and at $229. So this is a frontpage worthy price. Refer to previous SlickDeals on this product for commentary:

This may not be the best NAS for plex and transcoding, but if you can live without those things then it is a great value at just $229 for 4 bays and easy setup. I am buying this to use with two amcrest cameras as well as the backup and serving of data. I do not believe ram can be upgraded on this one. You'd have to pay more for the QNAP 451. Not sure if more than 1GB ram is necessary for most users. IP camera licenses are limited at 2 free. Must pay $60 for each additional. A Synology 4 bay with similar specs is probably the DS416 which sells for over $100 more.

This deal was also available at Newegg store on Ebay but it sold out hours ago.

I've been doing a lot of research for an NAS solution. I think the general consensus is that Synology is generally better but you pay more for the same specs (i.e. CPU clock, ram, ports, etc.). The Synology DS416 seems to have similar specs to this QNAP, but you will pay $300. You could get a Synology DS216 at this price point but then you only have 2 bays. I also explored options of building my own NAS and using FreeNAS and figured it was going to involve much more time and likely cost more.

Synology and qnap are basically the same. Synology has a little more features but this is an amazing price for a four bay. I use to work for a company were I tested all different types of nas units. These are always the top two. Qnap is easier to use.

How's this compare to Synology? I've been watching for the Synology 216j to go on sale again. Other than 2 more bays which one would be better for use as a music and video server?

I always hear Synology is better, but I think their IP camera licences are more expensive. I'd like the same setup as the OP, but would like more power for Plex in case HTPC goes down I have a backup. Anyone else with experience on Synologys IP camera setup?

Yes. I believe so. QNAP calls it Real-time Remote Replication (RTRR). See manufacturer's website: https://www.qnap.com/en/how-to/tu...ation-rtrr

Also manufacturer's main product page: https://www.qnap.com/en-us/produc...php?II=259

[edit] RTRR is listed on the QNAP 431P product page specifically. "Hybrid Backup Sync consolidates backup, restoration and synchronization functions (using RTRR, rsync, FTP, CIFS/SMB) into a single app for easily transferring data to local, remote and cloud storage spaces as a comprehensive data storage and disaster recovery plan. "

It has a maximum capacity of 48TB via (4) 12TB drives.

but does the TS-431P support RTRR ? it's not listed on the TS-431P page, but it is listed on the TS-451+ page

I have multiple QNAP, the built in backup can do 1 way or bi-directional file sync at hourly to monthly basis. However, the real time sync can not be scheduled or kept on. Seems the software is not quite finished. Otherwise the OS's user interface might be the best in NAS.

Got one from the previous $219 deal here.
