Conclusion about TerraMaster F5-422
Despite having a few issues setting up the F5-422, I found it to be very nice. It does everything I need it to do and more. I especially like the ability to run a web server, which I use for testing. Although I think they could use a better user manual, there are quite a few videos on their website that explain how to do various tasks.
I face some issues while setting up the F5-422, but all over the performance is very nice. It does everything which is essential. The running webserver is a great experience though. You can use these videos on their own website.
