The QNAP USB 4 JBOD Expansion Box and Rackmount

The QNAP JBOD USB4 Expansion Box, available in models TL-D810TC4 and TL-R1210TC4-RP, is designed to enhance storage capabilities for NAS systems. With its high-capacity 8 or 12-bay configurations, this enclosure supports hot-swappable SATA hard drives, making it an ideal solution for expanding storage without downtime. The inclusion of a USB 4 port (40Gbps) ensures high-speed data transfers, significantly outperforming traditional USB 3.2 Gen 2 interfaces. This speed advantage is crucial for businesses and users handling large files, reducing transfer times and improving overall workflow efficiency.

In addition to its robust storage capabilities, the QNAP JBOD USB4 Expansion Box features intelligent fan control to protect your hardware. The system automatically adjusts fan speeds based on temperature readings to extend the lifespan of your hard drives, with an option for manual control for customized settings.

This enclosure also offers easy physical data migration, allowing users to effortlessly move the JBOD to different locations and connect it to a NAS system. The plug-and-play functionality ensures seamless and quick data migration, enhancing flexibility and convenience in managing expanding storage needs.


QNAP USB 4 to 10GbE and 25GbE Adapters

The QNAP QNA USB 4 Type C Network Adapter series is an advanced solution designed to provide high-speed network connectivity for both Mac and Windows computers. Leveraging the power of USB 4, these adapters enable users to achieve 10GbE or 25GbE network speeds, making them ideal for applications requiring fast data transfers and low latency. This series includes five distinct models: the ONA-LIC10G1T, which offers a single 10GBASE-T connection; the ONA-UC10G1SF, which provides a single 10GbE SFP+ connection; the ONA-UC10G2T, featuring dual 10GBASE-T connections; the ONA-UC10G2SF, offering dual 10GbE SFP+ connections; and the ONA-UC25G2SF, which supports dual 25GbE SFP28 connections. Each model is designed to cater to specific networking needs, ensuring versatility and high performance.

One of the most notable aspects of the QNA USB 4 Type C Network Adapter series is its status as the first USB4 to 10/25GbE adapter on the market. Traditionally, achieving these high-speed connections required the use of PCIe cards, which often limited flexibility and portability. By bringing these capabilities to a compact, USB4-enabled device, QNAP has significantly simplified the process of upgrading network speeds, allowing users to easily integrate these adapters into their existing setups without the need for internal hardware modifications.

The fanless design of these adapters reduces noise and enhances heat dissipation through exterior groove slots on the casing, ensuring efficient operation even under heavy load. The lightweight and portable nature of the adapters, coupled with the included USB 4 C to C cable, makes them easy to set up and use on the go. It is important to note that these adapters are not backward compatible with USB 3, so users must ensure their systems have USB 4 ports.

The ONA-UC25G2SF model (STILL VERY WIP) includes two USB 4 Type C ports, one for power delivery (requiring a minimum of 27W) and one for data transfer, although a power adapter is not included. These features demonstrate QNAP’s commitment to providing flexible, high-performance networking solutions that meet the demands of modern computing environments.


QNAP TS-432X and TS-632X NAS Devices

The QNAP TS-432X and TS-632X NAS devices are designed for small to medium-sized businesses requiring robust and high-speed storage solutions. Powered by a quad-core 2.0GHz AnnapurnaLabs AL-524 processor, these NAS devices ensure powerful performance for various tasks. The TS-432X features four drive bays, while the TS-632X offers six, providing ample storage capacity. Both models support expandable memory up to 16GB RAM, catering to the data backup, recovery, and virtualized storage needs of SMBs. The built-in 10GbE SFP+ and 2.5GbE RJ45 ports deliver exceptional network connectivity, making these devices ideal for environments demanding high-speed data transfers.

In addition to their impressive hardware specifications, the TS-432X and TS-632X are equipped with one PCIe Gen3 x4 slot, allowing for various expansion options, including network cards and M.2 cards. The pre-installed 4GB NON ECC memory can be upgraded via a DDR4 SODIMM slot, with ECC support available for enhanced reliability.

These features, combined with the versatile connectivity options and powerful processor, make the TS-432X and TS-632X excellent choices for SMBs looking to optimize their storage infrastructure and ensure efficient data management.

      1. Where are the air intake holes? How do the drive bays look? Can you reflash your own OS? Are drives connected with vibration dampeners? Can it communicate with a UPS?

      2. What difference is there to the QNA-T310G1S? Works perfectly fine with TB3 or USB 4. Looks the exact same product with a new model number and says USB 4 on the box. USB 4.0 is compatible with TB3 anyway. I just tested mine with my Lenovo X13 gen 3 AMD (USB 4.0 with no official Thunderbolt support) and it worked with no issues.

      3. Synology has really survived with a better and more secure software echosphere. I have more clients and vendors who attest by it. That said, for many SMB who don’t need that, the problem is that Synology’s continuous moves to a really forced-hardware method (use our branded, 2.5-3X normal cost) hardware is becoming problematic. When someone is selling you rebadged Toshiba drives at 3X cost, it just seems.. wrong.

      4. When you literaly just upgrading your homeoffice-network to 2.5GBit and your new Qnap TS-464, while this video is running… your new setup immediately feels slow again ????
        REPLY ON YOUTUBE

      5. jumping into the NAS systems synology honestly my first pick because of the software side for my needs, and would love to have seen more than hardware though.. its always neat to see stuff.

      6. What a weird processors those home nases have. Guess it’s time to look at 464 once again, shame, expected some nicer refresh to keep the hardware up with Asustor/Ugreen.
        REPLY ON YOUTUBE

      7. well the USB-4 -> SFP+ 10Gbit sounds very interesting considering the new AM5 motherboards will all come with USB-4 on… Easy networking on the ITX boards 😀 not so much for the “homelab” users with the switches… but a nice halfrack/10″ switch with like 8x 2.5Gbit and 2-4x SFP+ 10Gbit would be nice but yeah either it is a lot more ports or it is only 2x SFP+ ports
        REPLY ON YOUTUBE

      8. I do liked it you being disco-lighted at times 😉
        Does add an effect. Add seagulls and the show is complete! (joke!)
        Okay, I am a declared QNAP-fanboy but it has to be said, QNAP on the hardware-arena is again moving forward.
        Of course, at a price.
        I do also like the fact that they entered into the ARM arena, next to AMD’s.I guess the Intel’s are getting too expensive (or too many issues?) that they endeavour other CPU’s too.
        And it is a nice bonus that QNAP now also will offer 10GBe – USB4 adapters, especially for those with unused USB4 ports on their NAS.
        As for SMB3 Multichannel, now that is an official standard with more & more vendors, you perhaps may want to dedicate a video about it. As it does have some caveats, such as the requirement(!) that the Client also has multiple adapters (of the same speed!).
        Synology has an excellent web-page where they do explain those caveats and also compare it to link aggregation..
        Thanks for the videos, much appreciated!
        REPLY ON YOUTUBE

      9. Seems that QNAP is more interested in serving the home/small business market than Synology is? I had decided on Synology for my first NAS system, now I may need to reconsider?
        REPLY ON YOUTUBE

      10. I used to use my OWC TB3 – 10Gbe adapter until a MacOS update re-enabled the 10Gbe connection on the back of my dock and, the OWC worked quite well. But if you’re working in a room over 75 degrees, the heat generated by the device will cause disconnections. In addition, the OWC unit is HUGE. About 3x the size of the QNAP unit.

      11. Oh wow! Think makes me hopeful for rest of the industry to follow this direction. Longevity of our current devices would make sense financially and build brand loyalty
