Hello, I have WD My Cloud PR4100, but unfortunately it disappointed me.
I'm looking for a NAS 4 bay that I can have a good UI, good backup and sync app and software, with good customer support.
any suggestions ?!

Qnap can be setup to sync with Google drive and has various options.

Alternatively, or in addition, you could setup a VPN to provide secure remote access.

Personally, not very happy with the crap firmware QNAP has been rolling out lately so staying with a slightly older stable release. I'd definitely check out Synology more too though. Don't have one myself yet, but probably the next time I'm in the market for a NAS.

"Synology drive" is the app you are looking for, your own Google drive:D:p
Of course you need a synology Nas, i currently own a ds218play 2 bay and a 4 bay ds918+
The ds918+ is configured with 16Tb and 2 SSD's as cache drives, it has all kind of software to backup, synchronize locally or to the major cloud providers.
Cant comment about other brands as i always used synology.
I believe Most Nases big brands provide a live demo to try before buying .
Here is one from synology:
