QNAP is better than Synology IMHO.  Both are similar in functions and reliable except for one important feature as a corporate NAS that made me choose QNAP over Synology.  I have both and find that the Synology (even with the newest) firmware have issues maintaining ISCSI connection (it doesn't reconnect).  When I start the Windows computer I have to reconnect to Synology ISCSI manually where the QNAP is automatic.  Not sure if they have this fixed already but QNAP for corporate use.  Synology for personal use.

I wouldn't bother with Netgear, etc.  The QNAP and Synology I have personal experience with and they have been reliable as a RAID NAS.  We now run all QNAP for NAS.
