NAS products are equal parts hardware performance and software features. One complements the other in a balanced product. You need more hardware performance to run more software features at the same time.
The iXsystems FreeNAS Mini is a pure storage system. FreeNAS runs on FreeBSD, so in capable hands, existing modules can be installed or even custom built. There is a bit of a learning curve, especially for someone coming from the Windows or Taiwan-based NAS world. FreeNAS has a cult-like following with an active and vocal user base. Several blogs, forums, and even websites are dedicated to the software, and the people seem friendly enough to approach with questions or for advice.
A big benefit from purchasing a system preconfigured from iXsystems is the support that comes with the system. It's one thing for a company to say they offer support and then lead you to a forum, but it's another ballgame entirely when you ask for support and get a one-on-one session via a ticket based system.
