QNap is an awesome NAS box, but for me Synology is the top dog. I've had the DS1511+ for a few years and looking to buy another.
The software quality (especially UX side of things) is really in a class of it's own.
It's expensive, but some things are worth paying a bit extra for.

connecting Synology NAS to Samsung TV
I wondered if you have figured out a way to stream from your NAS to Samsung TV? I am using Vuze and can only stream from the laptops, but even though my NAS is seen on Vuze, I cannot get to its content on Samsung...

Unfortunately, I have not found a solution for it. I was looking into it and visited the Synology website and looked at my device's page and some other Synology products. I noticed a difference and that is that my model's (DS413J) page does not mention anything about it being certified for DLNA devices, so, I'm guessing that is the problem. On the other hand, Synology's DS212J mentions that it's DLNA certified.
I'm not a techie guy and don't know much about linking devices in my home network, but I think that could be the reason why I couldn't get it to work with my Samsung TV.
Hope I am wrong but for now I just use it for other purposes.
Please read my review on first page. I went on explaining some of the things that you are probably looking for as well.
I am hosting my website, which is just few static html pages from my synology nas and it works perfectly. I think you can also host websites that use database such as wordpress. You dont need any additional software, everything is available in the disk station itself and the Synology's UI is amazingly simple and intuitive. You should be able to find your way around it easily.
Synology is indeed a bit expansive but it's an amazing product with SO MUCH to offer compared to other NAS devices.

Chiming in here .... have had a QNAP NAS for 4+ years now and I cannot recommend one. I had a hardware failure (power supply) in year three, and QNAP refused to cover it even though it was a known problem with the power supply on my particular model. Since the replacement of the power supply, the unit has been ok (crosses fingers). I would not recommend QNAP if you're not seriously technically inclined, as I am not - I tinker (have built my fair share of PCs) but the QNAP is a fairly technical machine. One needs to know his/her way around networking and server configuration quite well to sort it all out - which is just a nice way of saying that QNAP's software UI isn't too friendly.
If I had to do things over I'd get Synology.
