5.0 out of 5 stars Relatively easy to set up - works great!, 4 Oct. 2011
This review is from: QNAP TS-412 Digital Home Series (Diskless) 4 Bay All-in-One Desktop Turbo NAS Server Multimedia Station (Accessory)
It took a while to set this NAS up but that was mainly down to having to update the firmware on the hard drives that I had selected to use with the NAS - be sure you check the compatibility list for your hard drive selections as there are known issues with certain drives - most notably the green / low power drives which are not recommended for use with this...

Once the drives firmware was all up-to-date, it was a simple job to bolt them into the caddy's and install, power on and away we go. First area that I found a bit lacking was the documentation - the quick start guide is a bit too brief (how to install the disks and power on) and then the rest is up to you - there is a PDF manual on the CD, but who reads those right?

The UI is fairly intuitive - if you have ever set up a Router for your ADSL (via the web interface) you will have no problem.

I have yet to find anything this little box of tricks can't do - it's currently backing up my Macbook pro using time machine, whilst I am dumping my data to it from my PC workstation, and PC laptop. Also running now as a media server - I have yet to try it as an iTunes server but that's next on the list!

Overall I am very impressed - all the services you could want from a NAS and a media server all in one small little package - well worth the money.
