4.0 out of 5 stars Competent NAS for SOHO use.
Reviewed in the United States on 13 March 2019
So after spending a couple of months with the QNAP NAS I think I am fairly comfortable offering a review . First, it's somewhat confusing to setup for the first time as a novice. The difficulty will be deciding on how you want to set up your hard drives, whether you want a RAID setup or use your drives as Single storage volumes or JBOD (using multiple disks as one volume). You need to be familiar with what Static/Thick/Thin volume types are in order to setup the drives. Once you get past this part of the setup, everything else runs smooth.

While there are many apps (mostly free) that you can download and use from the QNAP store, some get the job done, others are just terrible all together.

One of the biggest benefits of this NAS is being able to run docker containers. Container Station works but is lacking. Updating containers doesn't work at times since it changes the name of the container tags to something like (..data-1). Also, should your NAS go down in a power outage, your containers will not automatically restart since QNAP requires a system file check once booted back up after a power loss. If your away fom your NAS when this happens, you will have to remote in and perform the file check and then start the dockers containers manually. I ended up installing Portainer as a docker container through CLI and everything runs much better outside the Container Station limits. Watchtower also works, updating the containers and keeping the proper tags afterwards.

For torrenting, Download Station is pretty basic and has a lot of limitations. I installed Deluge as a container and have had no problems. I use Transdrone on my android mobile phone to add torrents remotely and have access to all the torrents.

QVPN works like it should, but I would like to set it up as a VPN client and have specific apps and containers use that while others not. Right now, it's all or nothing.

The 2GB memory model is VERY limited in what you can have running in the background. I run a few apps and containers and 2GB was not enough, so I updated the memory to 16GB. While the system claims it does NOT support anything over 8GB, it works fine with 2x the Crucial DRAM - 8GB DDR3 PC3-12800 Unbuffered NON-ECC 1.35V 1024Meg x 64 CT102464BF160B. Photo added to show that it does work. if you are considering this NAS and plan on using it to run containers or VM's, either get the 4GB or 8GB model, or get the 2GB and upgrade the memory yourself for less. I consider the 4GB as the minimum for a NAS in this price range and in order to take advantage of all it's strong points.

If you can't find any official apps on the QNAP store, you can always search for an app in the Un-Official QNAP club. Just be aware that these apps are user supported and may have separate dependencies that you will also need to download. Your other option is looking up docker containers and using Portainer to install them.

I also recommend you disable SSH access to the NAS. I found my NAS logging many attacks coming in from outside my network on port 22. I changed the port number and I only enable it when I need access to it, which I then turn off when I'm done. I've had no issues since.
