Any device on the same Thunderbolt bus as the QNAP is assimilated, making them unaddressable by my Mac. The QNAP can 'see' them, address them, etc. but my Mac can't. So the CalDigit dock goes (along with any attached hard drives), the LG Thunderbolt display can no longer be used, etc. Unfortunately, I only discovered this behavior after ordering and installing multiple hard drives, M2 drives, RAM, and so on. Amazon can charge me in excess of 15% restocking fee because these accessories are perfectly functional but the packaging has been opened.
I confirmed with QNAP technical support today that this issue cannot be resolved - you need to dedicate a thunderbolt port to just the TVS-882T and any other IP over Thunderbolt devices. All Thunderbolt devices on the TVS-attached bus will associate with the TVS, not your computer. This can be helpful behavior in case you want to use the Thunderbolt bus to attach a Pegasus / Areca / OWC RAID array, but its a stinker if your computer only has one Thunderbolt port and you'd like to use Thunderbolt devices other than the TVS.
If I had a Mac with multiple thunderbolt ports, the workaround could potentially be to have one port dedicated to the TVS, the other to 'everything else'. But if you have a Macbook Air or MacBook with just one Thunderbolt / USB3.1 port, your choice is non-existent. FWIW, the location of the TVS-882T within the daisy-chain is irrelevant, it happens with all configurations. Since QNAP tech support confirmed that this is the desired behavior, do not expect a fix. They did pledge to update their marketing literature, however, i.e. remove references to TVS series being a DAS, when the device really isn't.
The Thunderbolt issue aside, there is a lot to like. The inside of the unit is tidy. To get to the RAM or M2 slots, you have to remove the dual fans for the CPU (1 screw, two electrical connectors). The M2 slots include risers and screws that allow M2 cards of varying lengths to be secured. They even include two tiny heat sinks for the M2 cards, not sure where I would have affixed them given that modern M2 cards typically have multiple chips on them. Nonetheless, another nice feature is a thermal probe for each M2 stick that is spring-mounted. The CPU seems to reside under a massive passive heat sink that the two removable blowers blow over.
The two external PCIe cards (i.e. Thunderbolt, 10GB Ethernet) are easily accessible. There is room for one more, though I wonder how effectively the 10GB card will be cooled once there is a card shielding it. The audio gear sits on a daughterboard, suggesting that the design team wanted to keep things quiet there. Meanwhile, it looks like the OS resides on a small card near the RAM board. I also like how the power supply unit seems to be a standard part, i.e. you are not limited to sourcing them from just QNAP.
Lastly, the sound levels on my unit are not silent nor are they exceptionally bothersome. The fan hum is audible in a quiet room. There are at least 6 fans in there (!), so you are bound to hear something spinning away. Even the 10GB ethernet card features a dedicated fan.
The startup process is pretty painless and filled with lots of eye-candy. As a previous Synology user, I agree with some reviews that the QNAP user interface can be even more confusing than the Synology one. But those are addressable issues - study the manual, set the thing up, perhaps twice, move on to years of good performance. The Thunderbolt issue is a non-starter for me, however.
EDIT: The 2016 set of Macbook Pros have up to four independent Thunderbolt 3 ports, making it that much easier to dedicate a Thunderbolt port to this unit. However, I would wait for the Thunderbolt 3 version of this array if you're in the market for a Thunderbolt-equipped NAS and you've just bought a 2016-era Macbook Pro. Otherwise, you'll have to use a dongle and you'll get slower bus speeds also. Not the end of the world, but not ideal either.
The TVS-882T is more than just a NAS though. You can also access the storage over a Thunderbolt 2 connection. This allows super fast Direct Attached Storage, which performs so well you can edit in 4K direct to the drives with no problem. I have set this up so that I use the two SSD drives that I installed for video editing and the four (out of a possible six) 3.5-inch hard drives for backup and shared storage.
Handling such large files can be an issue, but I think I have finally found a workable solution.
It was super easy to set up and the user interface is a joy to use. There are so many configurable options and apps available to further extend the usability too.
