The good things are:
1) HDMI port. I like the ability to connect my TV to it directly to play back all of my media, as opposed to using the ever-kludgy DLNA navigation UI on the TV to access media on the storage. I use a wireless keyboard/mouse or the Android QRemote app for playback control
2) Gobs of functionality and apps. Just a crap load of functionality and s/w included with this little device. Surprisingly, it all just seems to work.
3) The OS is easy to navigate and use.
4) Overall, the device feels fast enough to me both from the storage and app performance perspective. I'm not putting any demanding loads on it and not planning to; for home use, I found it totally sufficient (I bought the 4Gb version).
5) Noise has never been a concern. You can hear it when it spins up the drives, but most of the time it sits there almost completely silently.
The main things I don't like so far:
1) The white soapbox plastic case is just a letdown. Nothing wrong with it functionally, but just not up to par aesthetically. I would happily pay extra $20 if QNAP made it in the black metal case like some of their more expensive models.
2) The setup was a little more finicky than I expected based on the reviews. Not hard, just took some retries due to sporadic failures. Also, the initial formatting of the drives took foreeeeeeeever (WD Red 4Gbs)
Overall, I do recommend this thingy for home media use - reasonably priced, has HDMI port and XBMC as well as many other apps. Ease of use is easy to use.
You can do this with a cheaper system, (like 20 to 50 dollars) but don't. This system comes with a 2.4 ghz Intel dual core processor, and 2 gb of ram. Others in this price range come with the Intel Atom processor and 512 mb of ram ( 1/4 of the 2gb in the qnap). This makes them slower and less capable of anything other than a backup. This will run plex, and numerous other apps you may like in the future. This system is a little more difficult to set up, but not to the point it would be a deal breaker. If you can't set this up without help, chances are your going to have problems setting up the cheaper "easier" Nas' out there. If you have the smarts to look at a NAS, you have the smarts to make this work for you.
I've done the cheaper and they work. Now I do a lot more with a qnap that cost about the same.
Having a NAS server for my home office has helped my quite a bit to get my office area organized, I do a lot of video editing and so I have many terrabytes of raw footage and edited video that I need constant local access to and replacing a small pile of external USB drives with this thing was a very significant boost to my organization and productivity levels. I highly recommend going this route to anyone with too many USB drives.
