I have TVS-471-i3 for 1+ years and I can confirm this is by far the best NAS server for PMS for 1080p videos. I am also running a Windows virtual machine on it!

And I think this is the first time seeing the x71 series has promo. Great product and great price.

Thanks! Just got one! I'm gonna retire my 269 pro and use it for purely backups.

it's tempting to get this. i even have a loose i5 CPU and RAM that i can use to upgrade this thing. but i'm perfectly happy with my 451...

EDIT: at this point there is typically a parade of idiots on a deal like this saying that they can build a much better NAS with less money. it's strange that they aren't here yet.

The 471 looks great, but I'm happy with my 451 for now. Still learning the ins and outs. I'd still be saving up money to buy that one over the 451, so I think I'm glad I got into it a bit cheaper for a solid unit, albeit much less powerful that the 471. Also, I second the noob question about the Dell server.

For the most part you're paying for the software and convenience with the Qnap. And I don't mean that in a bad way. If your primary use case is a home NAS or server then the Qnap will generally be less painful for you and easier to maintain.

Ive been looking at this for the past few weeks, this or the Synology and since this is Intel based verses ARM, allows you to run VMs (upgrade the RAM obviously) but for me Im getting a new 4K tv, adding a new home amp to handle the TV so PLEX and Airplay are the winners for me
And seriously this is the cheapest price Ive seen recently, one on EBay for $5 less
So unless someone doesnt drop this as a daily deal/Labor Day item, Im in
Now to find 2 x 4TB NAS drives (missed the Frys one by an hour)

Lots of reasons. Ease of use. Power.( nas is waaay more power efficient) . Space. Noise . But if you want something much powerful with super advanced features then a pc is the way to go. But you need to be real savvy to set it up right .

Whereas qnap software is solid and pretty much plug and play.

Can anyone explain to me - what are the reasons for upgrading a NAS? I have an old D-Link unit that has performed flawlessly for years. I use it for home sharing, music and pictures backup, mostly.

I have a Dlink DNS 323, great for 2009 but not any more, Win 10 isnt playing with it, the 2TB disc I think is going but at 7 yrs of backups, pic storage, itunes and UPnP server im not complaining (unless I lose the pics and videos then my wife will kill me)

Im about to upgrade to a 4k tv, 4k amp and with the video/audio capabilities of the 251+ (the + model is a Intel Quad based MB where the 251 is Intel Duo based as well as twice the RAM,so its time to upgrade my NAS as well

So for me the extra $$ to go to the + model with the updated CPU and twice the RAM

I have an old Windows Home Server that backs up my computers every day... can I use something like this to do the same thing? Does it include software to do this?

Thinking between Qnap 451+ or the Synology 415+. Hoping some deals come soon. The synology seems quite a bit more than qnap. Any particular reasons? Thanks.
