What exactley is this item? A computer? Or Storage expansion device? Or Media Player?

sounds like another reason to hold off for Synology to up their connectivity game.

Enjoy all the vulnerabilities on Qnap. I'm sick and tired of constantly having to keep on top of updates as people keep exploiting vulnerabilities. If it ain't vulnerabilities in the apps, it's vulnerabilities in the os. Saying that I read they are completely changing the os soon on certain models.

I have mine running Z1, so the speed of the drives isn't critical, more of a bottleneck is the network link, which for most people running a 1GB network is a bottleneck across all components 2nd hand n54l is about £40-£60...why spend £200-£300 instead ?

Cheers, I did like the gen 8 also just never bit the bullet, will take a look 👌

Quote from Amazon: 1GB RAM, Annapurna Labs 4-core, 1.7GHz Processor - for reliable high performance home and personal cloud storage Seems a good price here.

Good find and first deal @swuarneg :)

Great deal. QNAP makes awesome NAS and in the same price range has a lot more power than Synology.

Does this encrypt the drives and make the data readable only to authorised users? Thinking of office use but, obviously, need data protected in the case of physical theft.

uchman365

Yeah, not quite sure why they're so stingy with RAM lol. My synology is 1.5 and just about does all I want it to but I would love the upgradeable one but can't quite stretch my budget atm.

I mean, there's a lot of uses for a NAS connected to the internet so .. it's all up to the individual

Stuby

I agree with your main point that no home nas should be exposed to internet. But having lawyers of security is important. At some point, nasties can be within your network. Having a device resilient against attacks is always better than a device with patchy track record.

CRWAB

Although to counter this a lot of the issues are for people that have upnp enabled and expose their Nas to the world. If you don't do that, and will be local access only you should be alright. Had mine for many years with no issue. If you dont understand security though, definitely a miss and go for a Synology.

Stuby

Qnap has really bad Track record in response to security threats and breaches. I would research throughly before buying.

Well, it depends if you have a back-up of non-sensitive data too. I lost 2TB of photos and videos (at full resolution) when my NAS was encrypted, had backups of about 70% of it on a separate hard drive and another 20% give or take of low resolution photos on Google. Not too much of a loss in the grander scheme of things as all of it could have been lost. Still lost a good number of photos and videos of family, always a bitter pill to swallow. They were asking for 0.2 Bitcoin at the time (about USD 2K).

NotBruceJustWayne

What if someone has a NAS with literally no sensitive data on it? Then it wouldn’t be a massive risk enabling remote access.

Frank30uk

Nice - also £156.99 on Amazon now. Heat :)

hcc27

Anyone who enables remote access to their NAS needs to have their head examined. Speaking as a victim of the DLink 320L NAS ransomware attacks from 3 years ago (CRIPTOR). Thankfully I had most files backed up

MiloW

Yep, same here. Providing you know what you're doing then the QNAP boxes are a pretty safe and capable device. Anyone who wants access to their data from home when they're out and about should be using a VPN, regardless of the device being accessed.

Qnap server ts-453d
colin10086

I was with you until the last sentence when you because offensive. Not everyone knows about the security issues, and it's an important thing to consider then choosing a vendor.

SlightlyFoxed

I was trying to have a somewhat objective discussion on the boxes themselves - the security issues are well documented and a repeat of this performance would spell disaster for them. Nobody here is trying to hide it. Still, preach away, dude.

I'm constantly updating my QNAPs, it becomes a bit of a pain in the a$$. I've got one of those TS x53a too. My pal has a couple as well, the last update locked all of them up this week. It completed the update and never returned to normal state afterwards, they all had to be physically powered down and booted back up so beware if you have any remotely. Also, It winds me up when QNAP remove features from the app store from so called partners, i think that's a BS move. I think i might replace my QNAPs and go back to Synology at some point. If you read the firmware logs there is always something being exploited and patched on QNAPS XD

Wowzers that's not good.

Im not going to lie there was another hack just this week..lol

With plex pass it can Hardware transcode, i use the original ts251 and it works fine

My Qnap is now over 7yrs old and never missed a beat BUT a micro platform PC will be used as as my next NAS.More grunt/flexibility and upgrade ability. Just need to decide on which OS to use, think Ubuntu would be a candidate. So if anyone else is a little ahead of me please share your findings

long-time-lurker

I was looking at various options. Decided to start by just sharing my 4K HDR films from my PC. You can the just get access to them via your TV easily enough. No lag at all and all wirelessly (be it 5Gz) and the files range from 20-45gb Worked so well ive decided against a NAS as the cost just isnt worth it and will still need to have it turned on like my PC. Just getting more storage now which is 90 for 5tb. Just to add I even get the Full sound too so Atmos is displayed from my sound system.

FatherTed

Now £268.50 after discount. Seems to be going up by the hour and will be cheaper to buy on Amazon at this rate.

canada16

I bought 1 as I have a very old TS-259 pro and it no longer supports Plex even though it works fine. Its 10 years old and on 24/7 and never missed a beat, but as I use mine as a plex server its no longer fine for me. Cant wait for it to arrive.
