TVS-872X vs TS-h886

TVS-872X vs TS-h886
My question is regarding which one would suit me the best?
The NAS is going to be used for the following.
Backup of currently 4 devices
Surveillance with 4 cameras
Multimedia and storage

As for multimedia, I would recommend Core i5 instead of this particular Xeon. It is faster per core and overall performance. Also, GPU chip will help quite a lot. Surveillance and backups require significantly less power compared to Multimedia use. Bot models would cope with that fairly easily.


Here is a comparison table.



Intel® Core™ i5-8400T 6-core/6-thread Processor, burst up to 3.3 GHz

Intel® Xeon® D-1622 4-core/8-thread processor, up to 3.2 GHz

Core i5 benchmark is 7356 and Xeon benchmark is around 6205. The performance is similar, but Core i series have transcoding engine built-in. This allows covering videos up to 1080p without slowing down overall CPU speed. Anything bigger than this and both CPU will use all resources to convert those videos.

System Memory

8 GB SODIMM DDR4 (1 x 8 GB)

16 GB UDIMM DDR4 ECC (2 x 8 GB)

TS-h886 can be set up with ZFS file system. In combination with ECC RAM (self error-correcting), this would be an attractive choice for web hosting, VMs and other solutions with 100% uptime expectancy.

M.2 Slot

2 x M.2 2280 PCIe Gen3 x2 slots

2 x M.2 22110/2280 NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 slots

TS-h886 comes with a faster NVMe slot. X2 is around 2GB/s and X4 is around 4GB/s speed. You can fully use NVMe SSD speeds.

 Ethernet Ports

Qnap 86 series require a card for faster LAN port. It comes with built in 2.5 Gigabit ports.

72XT comes with 10GbE port built in.

PCIe Slot

Slot 1: PCIe Gen 3 x16 (CPU)

Slot 2: PCIe Gen 3 x4 (PCH)


Slot 1: PCIe Gen3 x8

Slot 2: PCIe Gen3 x8

USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) Port

2 x Type-C USB 3.2 Gen 2 10Gbps

2 x Type-A USB 3.2 Gen 2 10Gbps

HDMI Output

1, HDMI 2.0 (up to 3840 x 2160 @ 60Hz)

There is no HDMI port on 86series NAS.

I hope this helps.
