    This review is from: Qnap Network Storage Server (TS-419PII-US) (Personal Computers)

    I wanted a media server, a backup device, a place to store files as well as a place to store security cam footage
    I like the media functions, it works fine with my Squeezebox and my WD Live TV Hub and My Logitech Revue for both movies and music.
    Setup was simple, you need to see the forum for the tricks on speeding up raid creation. I used 4 Hitachi 2 TB drives in a Raid 5, it took about 12 hours to build the raid. Make sure you check the compatible drives list on the website.

    The external Esata connection is not a powered connection so you need either a powered ESATA dock or a cable that combines Esata and USB.

    Its just been running since I set it up. I have a spare drive on the shelf for my Raid and I have a drive I am going to use in a esata dock for backing up critical files.

    Its been running for 3 weeks now, I am happy with my purchase and have no complaints and would recommend this device.

    I’ve had this product for many months now with 4 x 2TB Samsung HD204UI(F4EGs) running in RAID 10. Like one of the other reviewers, I have a WD Live Streaming and this product works well with it as long as you use the most recent TwonkyMedia Server with it. My roommates are able to stream videos with ease and the device performs much better than I ever expected (from my PC over gigabit lan + ASUS RT-N56U makes for 60MB/s writes and roughly 90MB/s reads on RAID 10 which are the limitations of the drives and not the device itself).

    When I initially for this machine, I set it up in RAID 5 but was seeing somewhere around ~40MB/s and realized that such large drives take a long time to rebuild (tested this but forgot to enable the bitmap – which greatly reduces rebuild times). I then deliberated and finally settled on RAID 10 thanks to it’s performance advantage (in most situations) and it’s lower rebuild times (since no parity is calculated, rebuilds take roughly 6 hours for nearly 2TB of data compared to 9+ for RAID 5).

    The only reason I have given the device 4 stars is because just about every drive I can find is not on the compatibility list or was changed when only had 2 of the Samsung HDDs. This is primarily my fault for not doing more research about the drives I buy, but the newer Netgear NAS devices don’t have the issues with many of the drives that this device does (namely Western Digital WD30EZRX 3TB drives). These drives are on the ‘unofficial’ compatibility list but not on the official one so I thought I’d try them out. DO NOT buy them for this device. They have caused many issues with my attempts to expand my RAID volume and take a very long time for various reasons – I won’t mention here but just know that these drives are not meant for RAID.

    I have not tried Synology or any 4-bay Netgear so I cannot compare this to any comparable product, but other than the hard drive compatibility list, I thoroughly enjoy this device and recommend QNAP to my colleagues and friends.

    Update: I have since tried a Netgear Pro 4 and found it to be far faster in every aspect of performance, but its weakness is the internal power supply – which is more difficult to replace. The firmware is a bit more robust on the Netgear devices but the QNAP is definitely more flexible in its design (by having an integrated MySQL server as well as several more services than the Netgear). For a while I had Netgear rsync backup to the QNAP and both worked very well with each other.

    Bottom line: If you need a simple solution, use the Netgear. Otherwise use a QNAP.

    This is my third QNap. I have a 409Pro, a 410 and now a 419PII. The software works well, and the performance on the 419PII is very reasonable with 38MB/s writes, 40MBs reads on gigabit with standard sized frames (no jumbo frames) Overall, no complains save for two BIG ones.

    1. QNaps, at least for me, like blowing their cheap power supplies.
    2. QNap support is non existent. So, if you do blow one, you’d better have ordered a spare supply ($130) directly from QNap. It may even work. But know you’re totally on your own.

    This is a shame because the basic ideas and design concepts work very well, but the quality control just isn’t that. It’s a random buy.
