QNAP Desktop Models Ryzen being dropped?

This question is really directed to Rob and others in the know. But a number of us who have been waiting on a Ryzen desktop refresh appear to have been dropped off the radar. I was planning to purchase the 12 or 16 bay Ryzen desktop, but didn't want to buy 2 year old cpu's when much newer versions were readily available. Now it is confirmed that Qnap has no plans to update the Ryzen desktop systems. This is sad beyond belief as the ryzen models were a great balance of cpu, ram etc. I wish this could have been push during the recent Q&A that Rob did with Qnap. So whats my question? Where does this leave those that wanted a great cpu based system, but dont want to purchase rack options. The latest QuTS Xeon's are lets face it, not inspiring. Oh well, very sad times.

Help and advice with Upgrade for Storage Expansion set up?

The Problem: - I did what I could only do and installed my 4 x 10TB existing Sata drives into the new TVS 682, it appears I cannot use static volume with the new Qtier SSD drives function (Qsync over our network to 5 Computers?) – presently able to carry out our normal nightly back up of each computer drive (Documents and its Qsync folder) I suppose I am looking for a heads up before I have to click the rebuild button? Is this right or is there another option? Looked till I am now confused – (I’ll say it first - yes I am easily confused) BTW - Purchased TL D800S via SPAN – TVS 682 via Box

Which is best for my situation?

I'm looking at the qnap ts-451+ and the Asustor AS6404T. I'll be using the NAS to hold movies to stream throughout my home via LAN. I have no need to use the HDMI port, I already have media players (Nvidia Shield and Mibox Android TV boxes) so the Nas will just be a storage and access point. Files are also backed up in the cloud. Which of the 2 Nas devices would you recommend based on your expert knowledge? Thanks In Advance

PLEX on qnapTVS-672N-i3 or do I need it?

Hi First thx for a intressing website and Youtube channel. I have today since a couple of years a WD pr2100 wich has served me well. I use it mostly for Plex and some minor backups. I also have some friends who uses my Plex server. I think of upgrading to get more bays and a more powerful NAS. I have consider synology 918+ or 920+ or maybe a terramaster. But recently I also have been looking at the qnap 672N-i3. Regarding on more Plex users is the qnap a better choice? Mainly the material is 1080 p. Is it more futureproof regarding some 4K with the qnqp ? Is there another better NAS option ? I have ofcourse Plexpass with transcoding today on my wd pr2100. I dont mind spending some money on a new NAS.

Shared folder?

I've followed several of your video tutorials and set up my DS220+. Can you help please? I have created a shared folder on the NAS and mapped it to Z : on my PC and I want to use this folder to be my main working folder for photo editing with photoshop and luminar. I also want to be able to show those photos on my TV on the same network but the TV will only see the 3 Media Server created folders "photo", "video" and "music". I don't want to have to copy the photos from the shared folder to the media folder. Am I missing something? Thanks for a great series.

Creative professional - first NAS?

Hi NAS compares - the site has been really useful - thank you So I am about to need to sort out my storage and I think I need to move up to a NAS - below are some current details I am a small outfit creative professional (artist / graphic designer) - so have large project files that need access to (but not across large groups) Currently I have a macbook pro with a nearly full 1tb SSD in the machine. I use a 3TB Toshiba external hard drive for time machine and + store photos and a 4TB Seagate external hard drive for time machine and + store photos So I guess I've been using these USB external drives like a primitive RAID 1. I am looking to free up my SSD on my macbook and then use a NAS as my working machine. I suspect that I will need increase the amount of space I am using at present (so 4 or 6 TB ? this I am unsure and happy to take advice..) and maybe use something like RAID 5 system ? Again happy to take advice. Thanks , Sam

NAS Reliability during lifespan?

Researching NAS solutions from major NAS vendors and found several mentions of unit failures. This made me very nervous about the quality control of the major NAS vendors. I want to ask the collective wisdom of the community what their experiences have been. I am I just seeing the malcontents, or is quality a concern, if it is a concern is one major vendor more rigorous about testing units???
