Ah, a decent (FOUR BAY) reduced price NAS, still don't personally see the advantage over a pc, unless you are unwilling or unable to configure a pc as a NAS. The pc will inevitably be bigger and won't have removable drives, but in reality how often do you remove drives?

Can you install xpenology on this? :-D

Really tempted to upgrade my 2 bay one. The reason why this suits people better than a pc / build your own micro server etc is the plug and play / no faffing aspect. With this I know it’s solid wherever I am in the world and I won’t have the kids screaming because ‘Plex isn’t working’’. I also have Plex running on a pc and it’s the bane of my life lo

Also cost cheaper to run a nas drive then a pc.

Make no mistake, this is a great deal especially for Plex-ers.

Rare to get a deal on a QNAP.. heat added. Does anyone know of any deals on WD Reds or equivalent at the moment?

I would rather have the HP Microserver which is much cheaper and can be configured with upgrades etc.

I'm looking for a NAS too and waiting for good deal on a Synology box. Would this be a good alternative? I've heard so much about the Synology OS.... Thanks...

Great spot op, currently have a QNAP ts-231p, brilliant item, just not enough power for plex, and also only had 2 bays, whereas this had 4, great price. Ordered this for same day prime delivery.

What's so much better about it? Except additional 2x Ethernet and 1x HDMI, it has an inferior processor, from what I see.

To start, you can use it as a karaoke machine.
Outputs 4k video, Mono-LCD display with backlight, all USB ports are 3.0 and 4 camera licenses. 2 extra ethernet ports are very important for some people. It means this Nas is twice as fast.

This one also supports 4k (streaming) qnap.com/en/…51+ . To plug in 4 ethernet cables I would have to buy a switch, I just don't see the value in that for everyday use. It is true you get more cameras licenses 40 vs 4, but again, unnecessary for me. Thanks for the post though, it made me research more!

The two Ethernet ports are for different VLANs, 99.9% of home users who buy these will not being using two different routers, two different ISP contracts, two different home networks.
