Well, I've been watching the price on this unit, reviews has been good. Camel shows avg price $444, so this is some what of a deal, but lowest is $354, still not sure if I'll click that button. Anyway, for those in the market this is not bad of a deal.

When I had an issue, they connected remotely and immediately helped resolve the issue. I know it's only one guy's experience, but they aren't all bad.

I hate how they advertise these nas devices as plex encoding, seriously. These cpus will struggle even with 720p streams, but other than plex they are great nas devices and good app support + low power consumption

I was personally in the market for Nas devices like Qnap or Synology, but after doing good research I went with Dell T30 server with Unraid and gotta be honest very impressed so far. The only downside of T30 is the power consumption, with 4 HDDs my power consumption is about 80-90 watt average, in my area it translates to about $60 a year 24/7 usage, not too bad

Depends on the issue. I don't get replies from their support page until days later. An actual support person connected over a week after the request. And they have yet to fix the issue. Its been over 2 weeks since the issue was finally "escalated". This problem has been ongoing for months. Absolute garbage.

QNAP is the worst.
They advertised for Apple and Windows environment but for actual use? Not so much. Its been a total cluster fark for ACL across the board.

And yuea, that is the tradeoff off for more performance is more wattage. Your better off building a server/pc and setting up NAS (FreeNas) for media. Most standard NAS's and Servers choke on Media Trancoding.

Agreed! I've been doing A TON of research on this topic. And I mean A LOT. I have called both Synology support and QNAP support and bombarded them with a lot of questions. Most responses I get from QNAP are ConfusedConfusedConfused

That said, people, please pay attention to the file system being utilized. ZFS followed by BTRFS are the two you should focus on if you want to avoid data corruption/bit rot. So it's either Synology or DIY FreeNAS.
