My 251 serves me very well. I think I paid $259 and that was a hot deal then in October. I wish I got the 4 bay, and the 4 bay was at this price.

Seriously consider the 4 bay over the 2. Disks will keep getting cheaper, and you can raid5 the four of them.

I've doing torrents and remote file access. works flawlessly. love being able to access my files from my phone when I'm away. however the backup app is very lacking; not a full system backup, just file backup and it takes forever.

I'd love to see that 251 under $200.

I paid $329 from Newegg for the TS 451 in April. I loved it until it died last week, dealing with an RMA now so we'll see how their customer service is.

I'm a Synology guy myself, but QNAP looks interesting.

I'm curious about their disk selection though; the last time I looked they had a very small list of "approved HDs".

Any comments on how to get around that little list???

Do you think Synology offer better OS and features?

Yes, Synology OS is better, and offers better GUI and functionalities.

Can't honestly say; never used QNAP. I've been using synology stuff for many years (5-6) but I see these great deals and wonder what the competition is like. From everything I've read, yes, Synology has the edge, but the prices are higher.

I checked out the list of supported drives a month or so ago and I was surprised it was so tiny. Makes me a little nervous to think that it lacks compatibility, but perhaps they're just lazy and don't update it, but if so, that's a bad sign in itself IMO.

I'm on my second QNAP, and I think they're comparable to the Synology. At this price point, I don't think you can beat the TS-451 (I have a TS-651.)

As to the disk, don't forget, you're talking about a very small subset of drives - consumer available, RAID ready drives. There aren't that many available.

Each company has a site to test their NAS is, I would test them out. From what I saw and read qnap is catching up synology and at this price point a much better deal. I picked up the ts-451 last time frys had this deal and its going strong with 3 Toshiba (hitachi) 3gb drives.

Hrmmm. Tempting to pick up a 251. I already have a 469L (and love it) but was looking at having one for some virtualization stuff. I tested one of their 1U models a month or so ago and it was pretty cool.
