QNAP's TS-231P is a good value in a RAID 1 NAS.

thanks for the review. I got the unit and noticing slow USB3-HDD to NAS-HDD write speeds. When I attach MyPassport HDD to laptop and copy a file to NAS, I get ~70MB/s. When I attach MyPassport to NAS USB3 port - speeds are <<10MB/s. Is this expected? Does review chart cover this speed?

The benchmarks include backup throughput tests for FAT, EXT3 and NTFS formatted USB drives.

These benchmarks use the QNAP's backup utility. How are you measuring the attached drive throughput?

I access file system from Laptop, both NAS and USB3 connected drives are visible. Then I copy file from USB3 drive to NAS drive. i.e. from \\gNAS\USBDisk1\fileA to \\gNAS\

That means you are moving the file from the USB drive, to your computer, then back to the NAS.

Use the built-in backup utility or File Manager
