I currently have a DS414 that I want to replace. I hesitate between the DS 920+ and the TS-453D, I want to keep my disks (4X WD Red 4TB WD40EFRX).
The Qnap seems better equipped:
- 2.5 Gbps vs 1 Gbps network
- 1 pci-express port vs 0
- Max ram 32 GB vs 20 GB
For the Os I know DSM well and like it (simple and stable). QTS looks better provided in settings which I like but is it also stable?
The 2.5 Gbps network interests me even if it requires some modifications (compatible switch and router) and makes me prefer QNAP.
I wonder if my hard drives allow me to take advantage of this speed?
What do you think ?
thank you in advance
I am Having a little difficulty choosing a NAS. My use cases are for For backups, Business file services, surveillance, downloading hard copy movies to NAS for plex, and scanning personal pictures and photographs. I live in Canada Ontario if that helps you with your search. The file services portion is the most important however we still want a NAS that can consistently do the other things. our budget like listed above is $800 CAD to $1400 CAD $1500 CAD being ABSOLOUTE max. this price is not including the price of the drives as we will slowly build up the # of drives. I really hope you can help just like your videos helped me choose out our first NAS. BTW we need anywhere from 6-8 drive bays
I have a Synology DS-718+ and use Surveillance Station. One problem is that Surveillance Station does not let you use AI the the DS series NAS devices. It only works on the DVA or NVR series devices which are dedicated devices.
Some of the newer security cameras have AI built into them. Instead of triggering and recording movement from every shadow, branch, dog or bird, they are able to recognize people or automobiles.
I was wondering if these new AI features of these cameras can be used to trigger an event on Surveillance Station running on a DS-718+.
It would be nice to get AI functionality on a DS-718+. Will this work?
I'm looking to buy my first nas. These are the things I'm taking into consideration:
- Im looking at a 2 bay with 2x4tb with raid for redundancy
- I mostly want to use it for backing up 10-12 years of photographs and from now on whenever take new photos and upload them I want them to be automatically backed up
- I work in lightroom and still want to keep the original files I'm working on on my local ssd as it's a lot faster to work with
- I would like to be able to access, upload/download files when I am traveling
- I don't need a plex, I use netflix, disney+ etc, youtube music etc
From watchin a lot of great videos from here on nas compares I think I narrowed myself to these 2:
Qnap ts230 and the ts253d
I think that the ts253 would honestly be overkill for my needs but there are also some very nice black friday sales coming on newegg and the ts253 is currently 399 cad $ and the ts230 179 cad $.
Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks very much
I currently use 8 x WD30EFRX (WD Red 3TB CMR) from circa 2012. They are whisper quiet in my DS1812+ and - even during data scrubbing and high load - the noise isn't intrusive at all in my office.
I'm looking to get a new 8bay Synology NAS (either DS1819+ or DS1821+) and would like it to be similarly quiet if possible... so I'm wondering if the newer, giant-capacity drives are still as quiet?
I've heard the Seagate IronWolfs are both noisier and harsher in sound/tone, especially under load, so I'm avoiding those (but happy to be corrected if I've got heard wrong about them, of course).
I'm looking for a new Synology NAS and I believe 8-bay is the sweet spot for me (I like to use RAID6).
My current 'old faithful' (~8yr old) NAS is a DS1812+, which has always been rock solid and is the reason I want to remain loyal to Synology tbh.
I've read some absolute horror stories about unreliability and eventual NAS-death caused by dodgy Atom CPUs used in the DS1815 and DS1817 units, which worries me a bit. I understand the newer CPUs used in the DS1819 don't suffer the same issues... but it makes me worry a bit about the 'new kid on the block' - at least in Synology boxes - AMD Ryzen CPUs.
Any advice or opinions on which to choose - DS1819 or DS1821 - would be much appreciated please!
I am planning on buying a DS920+ for home and business use. I run a software consulting business from home. Typically only 2 people will access the NAS and our storage needs are low (no plex, video, or surveillance needs). I chose the DS920+ as an investment in something that is scalable that I won't need to upgrade for a long time. (Tell me if I should reconsider this.)
Considering I currently have low storage needs, what is the best strategy for hard drive selection? Do I populate all 4 bays with hard drives or only 2 or 3 bays? What size do I buy- the largest I can afford? Do I buy the same size for all hard drives or maybe 1 large and 2 smaller sizes? Ideally, I spend no more than $600 USD (around the same price as the NAS) for hard drives. How do I best allocate this?
