This is the first NAS, I have ever owned. I did a lot of research and was undecided between Synology 411j and QNAP and then between QNAP 412, 419P+ or 439s. Kept changing my budget from anywhere between $360 to $660 as you can see from the range of products I was looking at.

My usage is of a typical home user. I set out with the following goals:
- Be able to stream up to 1080P media to few machines and TV at home.
- Put up a personal cloud for browsing my content on road.
- Android/iPhone support.
- Provide WAN access to my parents and sister to view my media.
- Have good and granular user level control over the shared stuff.
- More storage (3TB support) per bay. Don't have many old hard drives lying around that made sense even with Synology's SHR, so although SHR looked good on paper but was personally not a big point for me.
- Hot swap capability. Again only during your initial testing phase you may make more use of this.
- And at some time in future play around with iSCSI, VDD, setting up web server etc, just to satisfy the engineer in me :)

TS-412 has accomplished each task and much more with aplomb !!

Things I have tried and have worked well :

- Did firmware update from installed 3.3.9 to 3.5 as soon as the device came.
- Installed WD30EZRX - Western Digital's 3TB Green Drive (on sale these days) and officially NOT IN SUPPORTED LIST on Qnap's site.
- The drive is working well and stays around 32C temp. Since it is NOT an enterprise drive, I have used Qnap's power management features to spin down these drives after 20min of no activity and to shut down the system from 1AM to 8 AM. We'll see if this helps.

The Qnap TS-412 is my first NAS device. Before selecting it I looked at Drobo and Synology models. My conclusion based on other users' reviews and a feature-by-feature comparison was that the Qnap offers a good feature set, excellent performance and excellent reliability (not as many features as the other two, specially in how it handles multiple-sized disk combos, but it shines on the other two criteria). The services provided by the box (time machine ready, itunes server, upnp media streaming, on-line backup, etc.) scratch every itch I had in my home network, and the administrative interface is polished and easy to use. I'd definitely recommend the Qnap TS-412 as a complete home/small business NAS solution.

I came to the table with three external USB SATA drives filled with TV, movies, music, and documents. I wanted to consolidate all these drives into one network accessible location. The TS-412 appeared to be an excellent fit for my needs and an easy way to connect my individual drives to the network. I'm happy with the performance and functionality of the unit but setting the unit up was a challenge. I wanted to share my experience because there were a lot of things I didn't know before I actually got started. I setup each of my drives as an individual volume on the device, if you setup a RAID your experience may vary.

-Any drive you install in the unit will be formatted with a Linux EXT files system! I thought I could plug all my NTFS SATA drives into the unit and be off and running. Not the case. You need to install "bare" discs into the unit and format them before you can load files onto the unit. I had three drives that were mostly full, there was no way for me to shuffle data around to have one empty disc to start the process. I ended up buying a new 2TB drive for one of the unit bays. Once that disc was installed and formatted I was able to connect one of the SATA drives to the unit USB port with a SATA adapter and shuffle data onto the new drive. Once the USB disc was copied onto the unit I was able to install that disc into the second bay, format it, and then copy another external drive onto it via USB. Rinse and repeat to get the third drive on there.

-Use the web file manager for copying files! If you access the unit from your computer and use Windows to copy files from an external disc onto the drive, your computer will act as an intermediary between the external disc and the unit.

This review will be based on my experience with the unit. It's not intended to
refute the "successes" of the others that have reviewed this box. I do not
intend to assert that after "Detailed Study", it's the boxes fault. That
said, on with the review.

This box is AN ORNAMENT. It is entirely well suited to placing in ones
office with lights flashing so others think, "WOW, is that cool or what?".
It is only a NAS in that it does attach to a network. And, it does have
storage. I guess that's enough. But, as a flexible, functional, RAID
server, it is NOT!

I bought this NAS/RAID Server to replace my Promise NS4300N RAID file
servers which were getting long in the tooth. Hell, I bought an extra
one as a warm backup/standby. Well, go figure, both my NS4300N boxes
died almost simultaneously. I was able to transfer all their data
just in time to the TS412.

It was just in time because the 3TB file transfer on a GBit ethernet
to the TS412 took DAYS! Shortly after that, the last NS4300N finally
gave it up.

I am now backing up the primary TS412 on my secondary TS412.
According to the NAS, the remaining time is...... 13 DAYS! That's
13 days for a 5TB transfer on GBit Ethernet. The 412s are right
next to each other connected by a 3 foot Cat6 cable. I utilized the
fact that they have 2 network interfaces. I set them up to do
backup so as not to busy the primary network. The bandwidth
usage graph for that interface shows less than 7MB/s! Remember,
point to point over 3 ft Cat6 with no intervening hardware....
7MB/s! Must be the processor? Nope... less than 50% utilization.
Must be the Memory? Nope... 60% physical/12% virtual utilization.
