Hmm exact opposite interaction with QNAP from my experience. Been a Qnap user for over 3 years now, in the last 1.5 years their OS kicks the synology in the balls on usability and robustness. If you can read and comprehend you can setup most of the features. I have never had to contact support for anything. I get updates pushed to my NAS every 30 days and have never had anything get messed up...

I would still pick the 453Be over this though, since I dont need the SSD slots.

That's great. I similarly installed FreeNAS on an old Dell PowerEdge server to use it as a storage device. But for many people this QNAP device provides a lot of functionality in a small, convenient box with little hassle. And it only uses 23W (standby) or 39W (typical) power. That's a lot of electricity savings if you leave the device on 24/7.

Not sure how i would use the 4 ssd trays on this qnap. I rather the 8 regular bays ones. I still have 2 empty space on my 4 bay qnap, just need the 10tb harddrive to go back on sale

Nice, I wish I had a true need for this not just desire for it. Probably more realistically should look at a 4 bay or two bay for home data, file storage, streaming needs.

I went with 873 but this a good deal...

"If you need future proof solution the x73 series are really the way to go. The x51x is a fixed solution which can not be expanded much. There is no Pcie slot or cache slots on the board. People who buy 51x know that this is all they ever gonna need from this NAS. If you have growing business you need expandable/up-gradable solution."

You need the 4 SSD trays to do a raid 5 with SSDs and set up QTier for higher performance. I wish this one would have 2 10gb nics

I'm same boat - dont need SSD caching, but could use 4 extra bays from my current filled 4-bay. I have though about TR-004, however you cannot RAID across it for 1 big raid and why an 8-bay RAID 6 would be perfect. Just expensive as shit.

Some of the reviews i read about this nas is the lack of manuals and confusing set ups. Also qnap updates that mess up the system all together. I think i will just wait for synology on sale. This one seems really good on paper tho.

I have had my 8 bay Qnap for 2 years. They update their firmware very frequently. Sometimes I would run into some weird problems/bugs. Can't say how it compares to Synology since I have never had it. I would still buy a NAS all over again, just not sure if I would stick with Qnap.

I'm with both of the above users. No Synology experience, but I've had two QNAPs (my foray into NAS devices) and am pleased with how easy they are to use. Currently have the 453 and play everything from music to 4K HDR MKVs with no problem (including outside of the house via Plex).

Yuh most of the reviewer was also from qnap user. They said this particular model is different from the rest of the qnap line up and had bad update history.

CPU upgrade, typically no. Quick look up says that ram can be upgraded to 32gb
