Hi Guys, Looking at your Jonbo N3 build as I wantto upgrade my NAS. (Synology DS715). Looking at your build it occurred to me that your build would far o [REPLY]
Thank you for the reply, and I can confirm this now. This is great news, as these drives are significantly cheaper than the 3400 series! Cheers. [REPLY]
Hi. Thank you for this. I have mistakenly purchased an SNV3500 vs SNV3400 for my DS923+. It seems there will be no difference in capability of the drives, [REPLY]
Despite QNAP’s better hardware I chose the Synology DS423+ because my primary use was for Plex Server transcoding. In their head to head matchups on NasC [REPLY]
Which type of RAM could be used to upgrade the NAS? DDR3 1600 non ECC is the listed compatible one. Are different types as well compatible? ECC? 1333, 1833 [REPLY]
I know you like your Jonsbo's Rob. But how about building in a short (max 30cm) rack box? Something like Innovision (AliX) or German brand Inter-Tech that [REPLY]
I'm far from expert level, so I've just calculated this ad-hoc for PCIe 2.0: 1 x PCIe slot: x4 (4 x 0.5 = 2 GB/s) 2 x SATA: x2 (2 x 0.5 = 1 GB/s) 1 x USB3 [REPLY]
Question… maybe someone can answer. Let's say I add a PCIe 2.0 x4 HBA for four additional SATA SSDs for a total of six. To house the drives I could use ( [REPLY]
So now. after a year. Created the cache and are using my 2 TB WD black. with my 4-disc raid 5 but then they stopped being recognized. by the syn 923+ and n [REPLY]
That's the way I understood it. I can't say what would happen if you also stuck a PCIe 3.0 or 2.0 x4 10GbE network card into the PCIe slot. (If you went fo [REPLY]
Can't say about CasaOS, and couldn't find anything, but with Unraid you can surely use the two SATA ports for a ZFS mirror or even stripe… or buy an addi [REPLY]
Totally agree. For me, two 2.5GbE ports is the minimum nowadays. And if you're realistic and allow for two SATA drives, and account for customers using SAT [REPLY]
Hmm… only one SATA port, no PCIe slot. It's a powerful machine with the i7, but I don't see how the VP4670 could be used as a NAS. [REPLY]
Agree. The CPU only has 6 PCIe 2.0 lanes. The perfect machine for me would be: slightly bigger, a better Celeron with at least double the PCIe lanes, proba [REPLY]
Good idea! But you'd need a 10GbE PCIe network card (SFP+ or copper). It's a pita to access your Time Machine backups over a slow network connection. If yo [REPLY]
The device also has two internal 5-pin USB 2.0 headers, so with a long-enough 5-pin to female Type-A cable, you have yourself a port for an Unraid boot dri [REPLY]
I was wondering if it would make sense to replace my DS220j (Occasional Plex, Drive, Photos, DLNA Music) and Plug in 7 cameras into it, or would it be an o [REPLY]
For anyone following the guide on remotely backing up between two Synology NAS, kindly note that if you do opt to use port forwarding to reach your remote [REPLY]
You can create outbound and inbound rules. [REPLY]
