Any MEMTEST Results for > 8GB+ QNAP TS-x53D??

I'm interested in the QNAP TS-453D. NASCompares has shown it can work with 2x 16GB (32GB) capacity, HOWEVER, no conclusive memory tests were performed! Everyone, including NASCompares, just assumes if QTS can launch everything is working. Ridiculous. Has anyone installed more than 8GB then run MEMTEST to confirm the CPU can actually read/write beyond the Intel-stated 8GB limit? Having QTS simply boot or just running a VM within QTS while not using it are terrible tests considering how efficiently OS's and CPU's can handle resources these days. A valid test would be to fill the memory beyond the advertised 8GB capacity and see what happens. ## QNAP x53 series CPU - Intel J4125 Spec Sheet: ## QNAP MemTest: ## NASCompares x53D 32GB:

QNAP QGD-1600P switch and QNAP QXG-10G2T-107 10 GbE expansion card?

I bought the QXG-10G2T-107 for my 1600P after checking in the QNAP compatibility table for suitable cards for my switch. When I put the card in the switch will not boot, it just hangs on "booting". I have an M.2 NVMe SSD drive card in the switch that works fine. Could anyone help me with some thoughts as to why the card does not seem to be compatible- many thanks

4tb WD Red no longer compatible with synology?

Hi. Thanks for your site and videos. I have recently moved my 4tb wd red HDD from ds412+ to rs1219+. A check today on the synology site shows 4tb red HDD are no longer listed as compatible. They were on the compatible list yesterday I’m sure! My question is which models/serial numbers were compatible? Has WD published when they changed from CMR to SMR on hdd so we can check what we have? Regards

Asustor Mobile Apps For Photos And More?

Photo app recommendation for Apple user who just got a Nimbustor 4 Do you have software recommendations that may help me manage my photos on my Nimbustor 4 NAS? Ideally I would like the functionality and convenience we enjoy with our Apple devices (iPhone 8+, iPhone 6, Apple TV, MacBook Pro, Mac Mini) but instead of storing our photos in iCloud, have them stored on our new Nimbustor 4.

TVS-872XT CPU And RAM Upgrade?

CPU and RAM upgrade Thanks for this great review. Since short I am also the proud owner of the TVS-872XT NAS. I am looking for options to upgrade the CPU of this NAS to an I7 and go to 64gb RAM. I would like to inquire to what motherboard is in the NAS and what CPU types would fit on the motherboard. I read about the Intel I7 Core 8770T but I can’t find it for purchase in my neighborhood. On the RAM upgrade. I know officially the TVS872XT supports up to 32gb, but I found several users to upgrade to 64gb (2x32gb). Samsung seems a good choice, but would you have other experiences or recommendations?

How To Link IP Cameras In One House With A NAS In Another House?

How to link IP cameras in one house with a NAS in another house? IP cameras remote connection to Synology NAS Surveillance Station I’ve found your article as very interesting and clarifying, but still I can’t find an answer for my desired installation. I’d like to install a surveillance system in my second home, but configured from a Synology NAS I have in my main home, both in different cities and I can’t find if this is possible. I want to know if I can configure my cameras installed in my second home to be managed from my Synology NAS installed in my first home. Both are 50 km away from each other and both homes have a fast 100mb fiber optics connection to the PTT network. The idea is to check my second home cameras from my first home Synology NAS and/or surveillance app. If answer is positive, could I also send the recording over the internet so I can keep the video in case the burglar stole the SD card?. Thank you for any help

How To Make Two Synology NAS Backup Each Other Over The Internet Or Local Network?

Do you know if the software will allow one unit to backup to another unit at another location via the internet? What I would like to do is get two of these, install one at my church (very small – office is our Pastor and a church secretary) as file storage/backup for two PCs, and install the other one at the Pastor’s house (which is not far, but not on the same network) to which the first one would sync/backup.

TVS-672N RAM Upgrade And Compatible M.2 SSD Cache?

TVS-672N RAM upgrade and compatible M.2 SSD cache I would like to get your opinion before I set it up. I am mainly planning to use this as a Plex media server. I would only have a maximum of 2 users accessing my Plex media via the network at a time, One possibly needing transcoding. I bought the 4 GB model. I was thinking about adding more RAM and/or m.2 SSDs. Do you think this is necessary or overkill? If you think it’s a good idea, what brand and capacity would you recommend for the memory and the SSDs?
