Hi there - I'm looking to get this for my home use. We're an all-Apple household (MBP's, iPhones) and I'm looking for a NAS that is: 1) Fast... I'd like the fastest read/write speeds possible for a budget under $450 without disks 2) Supports AFS and Time Machine 3) Has an option for external access (aka private cloud access) 4) Supports DLNA so I can stream media from it to my XBOX 5) Has the option for RAID 1 Note that I expect to only have a max of 3 simultaneous users streaming media or accessing files from it at any point in time. And having 3 concurrent users would be rare. Norm would be 1 to 2 concurrent users. We definitely will use it for backup of personal files, photos, videos. We want the ability to browse photos on it too without slow performance (e.g. opening a folder that contains 1000 photos shouldn't take more than 5 seconds). Based on some research I've already done, Synology seems to be too pricey, Western Digital seems to be too "dumbed down", and NetGear seems to have poor quality. So... if anyone is already using a QNAP TS-251+ (or any QNAP NAS) and would like to share their experiences, I'd really appreciate it.
