I attempted to configure the RAID & it can't seem to include more than one HDD in the volume. The web app is clunky & not usable on mobile. Support is snippy saying the screen shots I sent them aren't a problem. If I don't understand what 'add no add part' means, it's a problem.
PROS. Tiene un potente procesador, mucha memoria ram, espacio suficiente para almacenar, Codificación y uso de PLEX server. Tiene un puerto de 10 Gigabits
CONTRAS: Tienes que invertir en un disco duro, de preferencia SSD, para instalar las aplicaciones y posteriormente para almacenar. A comparación de otras mas amateurs como WD my cloud. Es básicamente para conectar y listo. En el caso de uso de PLEX a mi experiencia las películas 4K HDR, sino tienen codificaciones pueden stremearse a cualquier tele con las mismas prestaciones, no tienes que codificar nada. Ahora si tu biblioteca es 4K y quieres ver una película en un Celular o una tele FULLHD, sacara todo el jugo este NAS, hasta 2 codificaciones al mismo tiempo. Pero sirve para bajar la calidad. Digamos que es cuestión de gusto y en el caso mío al tener todo en 4K solo me sirvió para poner potadas a las películas. Además hasta hace poco se logro poner la opción HDR en plex. Así que aunque tuvieras unas caratulas, no servía de nada el HDR en la plataforma.
Sin duda algo que creo se tiene que tomar en cuenta. Para mis necesidades las NAS con 1 Gigabit de transferencia, sin codificar nada y con un buen MESH y un almacenamiento de 35 TB sigue siendo mi red de preferencia. Algún día actualizaré mi red a 10 Gigabits pero no es el momento
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
- I was pleasantly surprised at the build quality, build specs, and feature set of this device, especially at this price point.
- The interface is clean and easy to use, though I've found the whole thing a bit buggy, and I worry about its data security.
- Several parts of the UI show translation issues where whole words were not translated into English. This isn't a huge deal for me, but it's certainly sloppy.
- The mobile app is not production ready. It's missing very basic features and looks awful.
- Some of the built in applications simply don't work. For example, I tried connecting the device to an existing OpenVPN. That's supported under the Network tab. Note, I'm not trying to host a VPN, but connect to one. It will not connect to my VPN (despite plenty of other objects happily doing so) and the interface to connect doesn't even make sense as the combination of inputs is wrong.
- Getting into the box via SSH shows many areas which are configured drastically wrong. Several folders have 777 permissions which means literally anyone with access can gain access to files regardless of how they're configured via the other interfaces.
- When attempting to open a support ticket, they wanted remote access to my desktop and the NAS device as a first step. This is absolutely ridiculous and I would not give someone else this level of access to my infrastructure. Especially not as a first step.
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.
