OP, you say $289 for the 4-bay NAS after coupon, but I see $269. Was that a typo or did the price go down after you posted this deal?

As someone who's just looking for something to backup photos from my iPhone, would this QNAP offer any advantages over the Synology DS220j?

Not really. It will offer same features as long as your use case is considered.

I've been running a Monument for about a year now, and it works really well for automatically backing up the photos from all of our devices

Just in case anyone is planning on using this for anything short of a standard home use NAS you should know this particular model will be absolute garbage. I bought one a few years back and set it up to be a TEMPORARY replacement for my 453b mini.

QTS 4.x requires you to empty and relaunch everything in order to be functional.

The extreme limitations of the cpu, not only make basically any video trans-coding impossible, but it makes even dealing with the web interface painful and slow, and it failed about 2 weeks after I got it up and running. Not even quite long enough that I had an opportunity to shut down my 453mini.

At 189 it is still worth it for a setup and forget about NAS, but for the purpose I would say this is actually usable for, you are probably better off getting a Western Digital MyCloud, for the usage these are good for, those come with WD Reds pre-installed.

How's this compare to TS-212P I have now? Its been running fine for years backing up my pictures, files and security cam recordings. Its a little slow, will this boost performance a lot?

The TS-431K is stuck with 1GB of RAM and is not upgradeable.

The slightly higher model TS-431KX comes with 2GB of RAM and is upgradeable to 8GB. Of course it costs more and unfortunately does not currently have a discount.

So for someone who has been lurking for a while and has never had a NAS before, would this be something to dip my toe in the NAS world? I have a custom PC tower that i use now and need something for backup purposes.

I've been looking to switch to NAS from external USB drives for a long time now but haven't yet made the jump. I am an amateur videographer and often deal with large files, but I'm usually processing on internal SSDs and then archiving onto USB drives. So, at this time I just need a cost-effective way to store data. With that said, can any convince me that a NAS solution has benefits significant enough to justify the switch?

Thanks in advance.

I'm basically wondering the same. Right now I am running a Plex server on a regular desktop PC with a 12tb external HD attached by usb. This works great but I will need to expand soon bcuz 9tb are full.

These lower end models have Quad Core Arm Cortex processors. Which is fine if what you are looking for is just storage. But if you are looking at doing more than just storing files you are better off spending more for their models with Intel processors. One of the benefits of the QNAP or SYNOLOGY NAS systems is ability to run virtual machines, media servers, Network Video Recorders, media transcoders, ftp servers, web servers, etc on the NAS itself. That is something that can't always be done on these lower end systems due to memory and cpu constraints.

But these lower end models do come with some great features. USB 3.2 allows you to expand the NAS with more storage down the road without having to get a whole new NAS. The ability to add a 5Gbe network adapter is pretty cool as well....not that I know anyone running that at home.

So do you research and make a list of what you want to do, be aware of what higher end models can do compared to these, and then make a decision on what meets your needs. As it sucks to sink $250+ into something to find out it doesn't do what you need it to do. It best to buy it right the first time.

Go for a model that uses an Intel CPU, they'll have much longer lives for support too.

The TS-251+ or TS-451+ are good for most tasks.
