Here at DigitalReviews.net we have been reviewing NAS storage units for about a decade, from very simple one or two bay units to enterprise level rack monsters.

A Network Attached Storage system is a jack of all trades, a Swiss Army knife of interconnected computing, based on a bunch of drives that play nice with just about any computing platform.
That is my definition anyways...

But a NAS as a karaoke machine is a bit different. Mind you, it is just another app that will run nicely on this particular QNAP model in addition to the host of other standard NAS applications.
