QNAP TS-410 review, 17 Mar 2011
Bought the TS-410 QNAP as i've used a similar model before.
Setup is easy, great features and the new interface is very good.
I have RAID5 setup with 4 HDD's.
2 minor negative points:
1. I cannot transfer files to the QNAP at the full Gigabit lan speed (limit is normal 100mb LAN speed), due to the QNAP's CPU going to 100% and limiting the transfer.
I suspect this is because i'm using RAID5 and there is an overhead with the calculations needed when storing data.
If you need to transfer very large 1GB+ files quickly then go for a newer model with the faster CPU.
My unit is still able to play back 3 different DVDs at once, so for normal use the bandwidth is fine.
2. The latest firmware supports Wireless networks using WPA2 encryption. But your wifi password will only be accepted if it uses characters and numbers only, no #?! or special characters are accepted at present (17/3/11), I hope this will be fixed in the next firmware update.
These are only minor point on an otherwise great product, which should serve me well for years!
