Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The first thing you notice about the QNAP TS-420 is how robust it is, it's physically very solid and well constructed. The front sports LED indicators for Status, LAN, USB and eSATA, as well as separate LEDs for each hard drive enclosure.

This unit is diskless so the hard disks have to be fitted separately. The QNAP TS-420 does have a list of hard disks that it's guaranteed to work with, though personally I'm sure more or less any hard disk would work with this device. I fitted two 1Tb Seagate hard disks into the first 2 enclosures and fitting these was very straightforward and not at all fiddly.

I then connected the NAS to my router via a Cat5e cable and switched it on. I was relieved to find that no old fashioned CD setup was necessary, it was just a matter of pointing a browser at the device then following the setup wizard. The wizard prompted for the server name to be set, the admin password, the RAID type (all RAID types supported), as well as the IP address (manual or DHCP). Setting up the NAS and initialising the disks was impressively quick.

The QNAP TS-420 itself is administered via the QTS 4.0 Turbo NAS OS. This effectively turns the QNAP TS-420 into a fully fledged multi-media box of tricks. The look and feel of the GUI front-end is very iOS-like, icons can be dragged and dropped, or dropped on each other to create custom icon groups, similar to the iPhone. Multiple desktop spaces can also be created with different sets of icons on each.

The QTS 4.0 Turbo NAS OS makes navigating all the features of the QNAP TS-420 very simple. The main 'nuts and bolts' of the NAS can be administered via the Control Panel, this gives access to the all the advanced settings on the device.

I have set up the RAID with 4x3TB drives. These are WD Green chosen for low power and heat, rather than speed. It is RAID-5

The system has been running for a month and is used as a data storage for typically large files (eg 500GB). Current use is about 5TB out of the possible 9TB being used.

It is very quiet which is one of the main reasons I chose it. It has also been 100% reliable.

Speed is OK, rather than fast. Writing it is about 35MB/sec (125GB/Hour) over a 1GB network. Reading is faster. Very similar to USB2.0 speeds

I am happy with the purchase and my 4 stars reflects the speed. Other QNAP models do have faster processors that may be worth considering if speed is an issue

This is my first NAS although I have set up many network servers. The QNAP was all I was expecting and more. It is well engineered and feels robust, perhaps even better than many products intended for business use which commonly are flimsy and fully reflect all the penny-pinching of typical production engineering. Not so the QNAP. Full marks there !

I was concerned to read reviews of QNAP NASs in general where users experienced supposedly poor engineering reflected in problems physically mounting the drives. Report after report said it took considerable effort to push the drive trays into place and remove them. Yes, I did experience this - and discovered that I was at fault and not QNAP. Sorry if this appears laboured. I hope it will help.

I completely omitted to see the hardware kit of mounting screws discreetly taped to the inside lid of the accessories box so dutifully assumed I needed to hunt out my PC builder's toolbox. I used what I thought were 'perfect fit' countersink screws that certainly appeared made for the job and flush. They certainly felt flush. The drive trays were a pain and didn't fit as they should, drive 1 jamming uncomfortably. I applied some common-sense and removed all trays, then added drive 2 leaving bay 1 out. That fitted perfectly, suggesting fouling by the screws (the heads of which are toward the empty space of bay 1.)

Of course, (as one does :-) ) I then stumbled upon the QNAP screws described before, swapped them and even though they appeared so very marginally more recessed when mounted, this time all the drive trays slipped into place perfectly.

The other setup procedures are described adequately by others here so I won't repeat. So yes, the QNAP is good and appears to do all I require.

A great NAS, especially when combined with cheap WD Red drives.

The basic functions are pretty good, and the built in Torrent is very painless.

The biggest issue is that they have lost a bit of user friendliness over the years, and replaced this with "clever" macros etc. The problem is that many of the new upgrades use too much memory for all but the biggest NAS units. There are work arounds, but many of these involve delving into the Unix, and nearly all the technical support FAQs Online have this guy who prattles on about how he needs loads of irrelevant info to give any advice.

So, a great NAS, if being used "out of the box", but one that needs a fair degree of NERD to configure to use extra features, or do upgrades - users beware.
