    I'm really curious about Terramaster and how their units compare to QNAP and Synology. Quality obviously has to be lower, but I wonder how much?

      I'll let you know, I brought the 4 bay one and waiting on delivery. Should turn up Monday, Tuesday. Im curious as well.

            @tugman: The 4bay one you bought is less powerful. No upgradable memory either. Works ok but not for Plex. Incredible price for $280ish for a simple data storage nas.

              @econzune: Well I sent the Device back to Amazon. What a terrible device, had so many problems, I can see why they are cheap. The software just sucks, and is so buggy. I took 3 goes just download and install the software, the raid performance sucks. It would go 110meg to 0 to 110meg to 0, My QNAP was just constant 110meg. Im sticking to QNAP or Synology or BYO in the future. Complete waste of time. Just my opinion and im sure others have had better experiences, but just avoid it.

              Their tech support is non existent, go to their "forums" and people just complain how shit they are.

      I really like mine, works reliably. Every issue I've had I caused myself or was rogue software.

      Software is definitely not on the same level but you can install Synology DSM unofficially if you wanted to. Terramaster support on the forums are good and they will add new features if people request them. In recent versions they overhauled the graphics so they look far more polished.

      The x86 NAS drives like this one are better than the ARM ones and offer more apps. Terramaster are actively trying to get more people to develop apps for their OS and are even offering free NAS drives.

      I use an older model for backing up my PC as well as some Docker apps and it's excellent.

      I’ve got one of these. The 5 bay.

      It’s well built. Zero issues with that.

      The UI is pretty basic. There are some weird workflows to set stuff up.

      The app catalogue is sparse. You’ll need to set everything up in Docker which ranges from easy to painful.

      Support is almost non existent.

    don'k know how long service support lasts but there is some. Ordinary enclosures are good but become more expensive because of the long standing economic war on china

    Just a shower thought I just had. Wouldn't it be more cheaper to buy a cheap SFF machine that can fit 2 HDD drives for <$100 and setup a nas server from it?

      You could but it will use x5 as much power.
      I only turn on my server/PC when using it as it's always using over 100w, I have a GPU which does not help.

    Deal is dead?
