Works very well for what I need

Strengths of the product

Lots of features, works just like advertised. Meets all my needs and has much more to offer.

Weaknesses of the product

None yet.

Additional Comments

Great little server for the price. I didn't purchase this to stream video, only audio files and to store anything important. Once it was all set up, my receiver in the living room and in the garage immediately found it on the network and started playing the more than 19 000 flac files. My wife likes it for storing her many gigs of photos and it comes with different apps for working with them. Lots of flexibility. Quite happy with this purchase.

One of my clients has been using this without an issue for 2 years now so I decided to grab one for myself. The user interface is very detailed and has a lot of options for customization. It has been very dependable and has never had a problem.

Fine as a simple fileshare device

Strengths of the product

Longevity. Mine has been running for a few years now and only needs to reboot if my network router hardware gets changed. Power usage. It spins down the drives and goes into low watt mode so no need to sleep / wake it at all unless you're extremely power conscious. Device detection spotted it's Cyberpower UPS right away, so that was impressive. Not all my desktops can say the same.

Weaknesses of the product

Compute power is lacking. I tried the built-in transcoding feature but it choked on everything I fed it. Noise. Depending on which drives you use, you'll get some noise during use. The fan isn't too bad through. Leave it in a closet somewhere and it's no bother. Networking doesn't pick up on address changes very well at all. Set it a static address.

Additional Comments

I haven't actually logged into the thing since my initial setup. I played around with a few features then turned them all off. I keep it mounted on one machine as an rsync target and then browse it from other machines as a typical samba share. It hasn't failed me yet in this duty.

QNAP TS-231 does NOT work with Plex Media Server

Submitted on Tuesday, January 24, 2017
By Jay
From Winnipeg

Strengths of the product

None that I am aware of.

Weaknesses of the product

Crashes daily when being used to run Plex Media Server. I've been reading various Plex forums and advise you to stay away from the TS-231 and TS-431 models if you want to stream media using this NAS.

Additional Comments

Very disappointed.
