Fine as a simple fileshare device

- 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.
- 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.
- 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
Jay from Winnipeg writes:
- None that I am aware of.
- 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.
- Very disappointed.
