After every few hundred gigs of disk writes, my NAS would stop letting PCs write to it. Some of the disks were noisy, but I've also been running 100% SSD for years, so I popped the disks out, and scanned them. First, SMART and dmesg (a Linux command with kernel output) showed nothing. I scanned all the disks from other computers, and popped them back in. FYI, you should do this before putting disks in any NAS anyway. The longest and most thorough tests showed no issues.
By this time, I had popped in the TerraMaster-branded 8GB RAM module. I wasn't using all much RAM, but I thought it would possibly fix the problem because of my large RAID 5 array. Nope. I made sure everything was backed up to a USB or my desktop, and prepared the unit for return.
READ THE STORIES ON TERRAMASTER'S FORUMS, and read the other reviews on Amazon and other places for other models. It will scare the $%&* out of you. I honestly thought this was associated with CoolerMaster because of the similarities in both name and logo.
If you absolutely end up buying one of these, I wouldn't put any sensitive data on it (I didn't). I just don't trust this company. Something feels fishy and off with the alpha quality feel of the OS.
Here's hoping that Amazon can practice some quality control with vendors, because anybody can sell anything on here, and there's no guarantee that it won't be third-rate garbage. Nothing felt better than sending this unit back, and I ponied up just a little bit more for a QNAP with 8 bays. If you care about your data, or you care about the time to start from scratch, look elsewhere.
TL;DR - Terramaster's DAS products have great reviews, but I wouldn't buy anything from them with an IP address
About the device itself, I had an issue with the installation but it got sorted out by a pro help. This device, TNAS as they would like to refer, I am using as a PLEX server to broadcast to my devices throughout my home and out. There are no hiccups as fas this device is concerned. Playing a 4K movie tends to buffer but it is not the issue of this device but rather my internet speed. This device came with 4GB of RAM and I upgraded with 8GB. Bit 4GB is sufficient if you want to use as Server and use the files on the run, obviously you will need good internet speed at both ends. I can say one thing about this device, very reliable and good specs. I wish I had opted for 4 bay or 5 bay version of this TNAS. I think
TerraMaster has good products and an even more good support system.
Gave them another chance. I went to a foreign country. Tried to access my drive. I wanted to upgrade the TOS (their online operating system). I upgraded, it failed halfway through. 3 more TB gone. Screw this. They are lower priced for a reason. Get something better.
