just a little FYI:

QNAP just released updated versions of their "P" NAS boxes (hence why this one is discounted)

TS-231P2: https://www.qnap.com/en-us/product/ts-231p2

now the new "P" series boxes have quadcore processors, upgradeable memory, and volume snapshots. for some these added capabilities are worth the extra money. for most using this just as a network storage server for media, sync, and backup it doesn't really matter. save the money and get this one from this deal.


and most who know me, know i'm a QNAP over Synology guy. i will go over one of my beefs with Synology. QNAP's "P" series is meant to compete with Synology "J" series. Synology also just released new versions of their "J" series NAS boxes. processor is marginally better but they kept the memory at 512MB despite it being a new release in 2017. QNAP "P" series have 1GB of memory and now the new versions have memory that's upgradeable to 8GB and a quadcore processor. shame on Synology. QTS is phenomenal and very easy to figure out. yes it will take time to learn how to use it like anything else. QNAP's tech support also is amazing. they respond to emails sometimes within hours. they can do team center sessions and show you how to do whatever it is you are having difficulty with. and the hold times for telephone support are under a minute. Synology is known to not even reply to a tech support request, despite being ticketed

I'm in the market for a local and off-site NAS. Mostly been looking at Synology, but perhaps I should consider QNAP. What about the argument that the Synology software is easier or more feature rich? Are you primarily for 4-bays?

Thanks for the info. I ordered this and cancelled. At first I thought to myself, I didn't want the extra expense, but at 2 times the prices you can get 4 times the ram, and the quad core processor. I realized after I ordered this, I shouldn't be a cheap skate, as hopefully this will be something that will last a little while.

Amazon is selling the TS-231P2 with 1GB of memory for $250. Then you can add your own memory whenever Newegg has the next sale on DDR3 etc.: https://www.amazon.com/TS-231P2-1...B074VLM36R

but again if all you are using this for is strictly network storage, backup, and sync...8GB of memory, even 4GB of memory, is overkill. the P1 would be sufficient. where the P1 would not be sufficient is if you start loading the thing up with apps. look at the QNAP QTS app list and see if there are any apps on there you think you may want. the $150 in savings (includes 8GB memory upgrade) could be used to buy 2 hard drives for the NAS.

you can dabble in both environments i believe on Synology's and QNAP's websites. see which one you prefer. there also are some youtube videos, but ignore the ones that are a year or two old. a lot has changed with QTS 4.3 and subsequent revs. honestly you can't go wrong with either today in 2017.

as far as features, i haven't found any features applicable to me that a Synology box has that my QNAP boxes don't (comparing box to box within the same price range etc). in fact, my TS-853a 8-bay NAS is superior to the new Synology 8-bay one that was recently released a few months ago.

as far as NAS boxes. i have an 8-bay NAS then several 4-Bays. if you can get away with a 4-Bay, great. for me the issue was the large media libraries i have with movies and whole-series TV shows that would fill up a 4-bay too quickly.


for backing up to an off-site NAS using QNAP QTS's Hybrid Backup Station, here is a quick video overview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsluYwZjkiU
QNAP Overview: https://www.qnap.com/solution/hyb...ync/en-us/
QNAP Instructional Tutorial: https://www.qnap.com/en/how-to/tu...a-qnap-nas

i don't know if things have changed on the Synology side, but to do what QNAP's app does requires downloading a few different apps on a Synology NAS. there are a bunch of complaints on reddit and youtube video comments about QNAP's app not working. there was an alpha version put out about 1 1/2 yrs ago that was a cluster F mess. obviously things have changed since then and now the app is rock solid and as mentioned, does everything that 2 or 3 apps on a Synology box does

POTENTIAL $10 off AMEX PROMO:


if you have an amex card check your Offers and see if you have one for Newegg. amex just sent out a $10 back on any $75+ purchase from Newegg today 11/3, thus potentially bringing the price down for this to $137.99. thus making it the same price as the inferior Synology DS216J and ~$50 lower than the clearanced deal the other week on the Synology DS216Play model (OOS, but can be found on ebay for $200-$260)

ARM Cortex-A15 dual-core 1.7Ghz, 1GB RAM, SATA 6Gb/s, 2x Gbe LAN, 3 x USB3.0, HDD hot-swappable

Looks like this is the Dual core one, not a newer quad core...unless Newegg's info is wrong on the page...

correct this is for the TS-231P, the dual core model. the TS-231P2 was just released, hence why this is being discounted to make room for the newer one which has quad core and upgradeable memory

This or the Synology DS216Play for $179? Just need network file storage and possibly hooking up cameras in the near future. No trans-coding necessary

that clearance sale ended (was being clearanced for the new DS218Play). if you want to see why the deal ended so quickly, hop onto eBay where every flipper and their brother dumped their max 3 qty purchased onto ebay for $220-$250. i see someone is still selling one for $199.99. honestly i don't understand how someone can buy it for $180 and sell it on eBay for $200 and make money

if you go QNAP, this is the best deal right now for a 2-Bay NAS. the 251 Amazon UK deal for $88 was canceled for everyone.
if you prefer Synology and are strictly in this sub-$200 price point range, you really only have 2 options. DS216Play if you got in on the clearance deal for $180, or the DS216J for $150. the J model only has 512MB of memory just a FYI.

whichever way you go, both QNAP and Synology include 2 free camera channel licenses per NAS box
