Hi, bought the qnap TVS 472 XT thanks for the great videos on this.
still waiting for my new segate 10tb drives to be back in stock. crazy embarrassing question . where does the cat6 ethernet cable plug into? my cable company router, or my imac 27, or both. I never see anyone talk on this simple starting step!
I was thinking to buy a TS-673 from Qnap, but it would likely not be sufficient for also allowing me to install a Docker with Sonarr, Radarr, Plex and the various downloaders. Therefore, I thought to build a Linux box to run a docker with those apps and also incorporate FreeNas.
Now the question is: Are there apps for Freenas like Qnap and Synology (Photo Station, Time Machine, Memories, access files from anywhere)?
I will use the nas in a home environment and I will need features such as USB drive copy button. Silent while not reading or writing to the drive. for data redundancy, the important data can be copied to an external USB drive, or manually backed up to a cd(so I don't need data redundancy until I run out of storage and buy another HDD) The speed of the nas is not very important but it shud not be slow either.
Hi there, i used to have a DS415+. I am a mac user, i use plex and I am a filmmaker. My main focus is Video, Plex and the Photo-App for backing up my pict. form my iPhone. I researched a bit and I found out that the DS415+ can be fixed easely but I am not really happy with the performance... so my questin is: Should I repair my old one or should I get a new one and if: which one should I get?
Is the play worth the extra money?
Can I buy a NAS with 5 slots to be able to increase the storage by adding a new Drive to the already working system made with 4 2TB-drives? (This question I can research myself, if you have a link to a good start, it would be helpful).
Thanks for your passion about this... :) I enjoyed wathcing some of your videos...
I am trying to upgrade my wifi network. Right now I am supposed to be getting 100/mbps. I have spectrum as my carrier. Router and modem setup in basement/ I have basement/main floor/ and an upstairs with BRs.
I have 4 iphones/couple tablets/2 TVs, one lap top, 2 chromebooks.
Network seems slow at times Sometimes disconnects. Not crawling but slow. Sometimes faster, sometimes slower
Best buy has the Linksys Velop Triband mesh router for $399, white on sale at $329. Prefer staying closer to $300. Saw the other options on this website but not knowledgable enough yet to decide which way to go.
Any advice would be appreciated.
I would like to upgrade my Qnap TS-251B ram capacity to 8GB, however, the Qnap stuff is ridiculously expensive and bought some Kingston ram before but for some reason didn't work. I was hoping you could provide your POV on the follow ram and if you think it would be compatible with my QNAP?
QNap provides very little details, from my research it looks like as long as it's 1.35v and 1600 / 128000 it should work?
thanks in advance
First, thank you very much for your great site and youtube content, awesome work!
I've been a Synology user for several years now, I'm the owner of a Synology DS412+ filled with 8TB but I'm only using ~4 TB. It's doing a great job, not a single problem with it, what I'm looking for now is a smaller and quieter solution. My apartment is quite small and I can't leave it working 24/7 due to HDD noise.
An easy solution would be just migration my actual HDDs to SSDs but I also want to have a smaller size (if possible). I've seen the Synology DS419slim and DS620slim. The 419 looks too resource-limited for me and I want to buy a long-lasting solution. On the other side, the 620 is a bit too pricy.
My question is, do you have any recommendation in mind similar to those Synology slim solutions (when it comes to size)?
I am looking to get my first NAS for home data(multiple laptops, windows, mac), media server & surveillance. I am close to pulling the trigger on Synology 218+ what are your thoughts & do you this can work for my needs for next 4 to 5 years?
I cannot get the Synology NAS DS918+ to connect to any of my Reolink Argus Eco Rechargeable Battery-Powered WiFi Cameras. My cameras are connected to my router and are working fine through the Reolink app, but I cannot get them connected to my NAS. I have run the surveillance station and have tried to let it search for it through the (ONVIF) and nothing is pulling up at all! I have even entered the ip address manually but it will not connect, please help me and let me know what I am doing wrong.
Thank you so much!
Hey Nas, I have awful broadband speeds in my rural area but decent 2/3 bars of 4g. I have just seen your review but would you recommend the Archer MR600 or the Huawei B525-4G 300Mbps, CAT 6? Both similar prices. It will mainly be used for online gaming and HD streaming. Also, could a power line set up be used for greater distances?
I read that Synology advice the use of expansions units as stand alone storage pool for best performance.
I cant find any information what kind of lost in speed you get, moving from an standalone DS1819+ with 8 drive to connecting an DX513 and expanding to 13 drives.
Is this something you have testes?
I have tried Google searches but haven't fount any information.
I am REALLY struggling with this decision. I just dumped my Drobo never worked great with Mac and am really liking Synology however I am DS918+ looks great BUT HW are 2017! Should I wait for next release here in 2020 or just jump in?
I have studied for years QNAP NAS, ever time I get ready to purchase I find something new. I was getting ready to purchase the ts 451+ , then l saw your review of the QNAP TBS-453D. I really like the size and portability.
I have read, watched all reviews I could find on the QNAP TBS-453D. My question are:
1. What is the release schedule for this device?
2. What drives would you recommend?
3. Have you verified that 16 g of ram works?
My use case is home use, multimedia, photos, and music. Family is working on genealogy, Family photo library, creating digital images via scanner of all old photos.
Look forward to your response, will purchase in the next 30 days unless new release expected soon.
I watch your videos on youtube, they are really good. I am after some advice and guidance. I dont mind paying a consultation fee for it as I dont know if your products would be what I will be purchasing.
I am starting a Plex Media Server and initially plan to setup a 150TB server, with plans to expand in the future as my 4K media collection grows. I would have really liked a setup like the Storinator Q30 from 45 Drives (based in Canada) - something simple, looks aesthetically good and most importantly really quite but I cant seem to find something similar here in the UK. I have an old iMac 2009 (3.4GHz Core i7, 16GB RAM with upgraded SDD memory) it amazingly still performs really well so I have little appetite to replace it !
Having said that, I have also been thinking, instead of the dedicated server such as the Q30, why not replace my old (but still well-functiong iMac) & build a PC/Plex Media Server combo in a Thermalake Core WP200 (the case has a capacity to host up to 60 HDD's so plenty of future expansion).
The server will be for me, my family & a small group of friends so it will have to be able to handle multiple streams/transcoding (including 4K) & have 10Gbit network connectivity (for future home network project).
For the HDD's I will need some help, I have started buying WD portable 14TB drives and the plan is to 'shuck' them and use them to save some money on storage. Most of them are in fact WD Red HDD's from what the research I have done.
Sorry this is a long email, as you can see I am very confused about the direction I want to head with this as there is so much information out there with endless possibilities.
I would really appreciate your advice going forward with my project.
