Ds220j Constant Accessing of the disks?

The disk and LAN lights are constantly blinking. Are there any configuration settings that I can look at to reduce or stop this or is it a function of the very very low RAM on this device. I purchased this unit in 2020 and it has happened since then, including when I upgraded to DS7.

Will the Synology HAT3500 work in a DS1019+?

I have a Synology DS1019+, and plan to change my HDDs. I now have five regular 3TB WD Red drives, and plan to change to 12-14TB drives. The Synology HAT3500 drives is not in the compatibility list, nor in the not compatibility list. I have contacted Synology on chat, and he did not know if it would work. Do you know if they will work in my NAS? An other question. What happened to the DS1019+? In 2019 when I was in the marked for a NAS to run Plex among others, the 1019+ got good reviews on the net. NASCompares also had good videos on it. In 2020, probably when the DS920 came out, the 1019+ seemed to drop of the earth. I hope I chose a good NAS.

Which 16GB ECC RAM to buy for QNAP TS-873A-8G?

I am wondering what is the recommended ECC RAM stick to buy for the QNAP TS-873A-8G? I read that I should get ECC memory for the ZFS file system. Which sticks are compatible and recommended for this unit? I would prefer each 16GB stick to be around $120 or cheaper if possible.

Which NAS for VM / Blind User?

Hi there, I've been really enjoying the site, and appreciate the help it's been giving people like me who are very much new to the world of NAS. I have a very niche question here that I'd love to get your expert advice on. I'm asking on behalf of a blind person, my dad, who runs a radio station. My situation is that currently I have a DS218. But now, this is not enough! The PC which hosts my dad's radio station, which has sat on my desk for the last 3 years, has finally given up the ghost. We like the idea of resurrecting the radio station, but this time running it as a VM on my always-on NAS. It needs to be a Windows VM because the radio station apps are Win only. More importantly, whichever NAS we choose, it absolutely must be able to handle the GUI aspects of the VM REALLY WELL: being blind, my dad uses JAWS screenreader software to navigate the GUI and use the radio software, so slowdown here would be a nightmare. So what we're looking for is a NAS that can handle this requirement. I will also be using the NAS for home/photos, and plan to slot my current 2 drives into it. So, getting to the point... Am I right about the following? - My current NAS, DS218, will not run the VM well - The DS920+, which looks like the next step up, won't run the VM particularly well either - The DS1261+ should run it all fine? Except 6 bays seems overkill for what will be 8TB of data at most! Just checking in case there is any new machine I should be looking at. Happy to consider QNAP options too. Budget of £1,000 including HDDs. Thanks so much for reading my question. :)
