This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Anyway, it's a beast of a NAS for (relatively) little money!
10gbe & Thunderbolt

2 tier SSD caching, many disk bays

We use this NAS for our video editing guys - where high throughput and low latency is needed.

If you're just using it for movie storage, then it's totally overkill.

Not for everyone I grant you.

Look on the bright side. If you need £3,000 of storage. This will keep it cozy and well controlled.
For normal folk, you could buy a tonne of externsl hard drives, connect them to your existing PC, allow sharing on network, possibly run a program like Plex and vwola, you have a similar setup for half the price.

Although for a large company that requires high speed delivered across site. This is a good deal. Way overkill for normal peops

Why would anyone need a qnap in their house?
I thought this was a microwave at first glance lol
I'm on a IT course, can some explain to me in simple term what this is and why I would want to use it? If you don't mind please.

It's a professional grade network mass storage device. Basically a fancy Nas that is typically used in data centres. Nobody needs them at home IMO.

Repurpose a pc as an unraid Nas or build an energy efficient one for a fraction of this price.

I wouldn't be putting one of these in any of my DCs.
We use it for our mass-storage in the video / image editing suite where we have 5-8 designers working. Also stores the companies docs and files. Does the job nicely

Overkill for home and short of the mark for a DC, as @the__cat pointed out.

I have a 4 bay Qnap at home - it serves media to anyone in the house and uses a third of the electric that my i7 Home PC uses.

I find it useful for dropping movies, family photos and music onto.
Just buy a rack mount server instead, better processor, you can run zfs and much more memory for caching
It's a cheap price to pay to ensure the continued longevity and safety of one's "educational" movie collection of a more adult nature
