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.Read more ›
-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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
