I'd personally pick the qnap 231p for $140 at newegg as it is ranked 3rd on smallnetbuilder, while this netgear is ranked 9th - and costs more.

Benefits to QNAP -
better OS,
hot swappable drives
newer unit

another option for the same price might be this Thecus with a Intel based processor and 2GB of RAM (if you need 4K video transcoding support) ($169)
