The above is just me trying to decide between those units. Already have a DS920+ and looking for a 2nd unit. This time would like a unit with more than 4 bays that being the main reason I have not pulled the triggered yet on the DS920+.

This QNAP seems like a better more future proof investment, with 2.5GbE, and expation bay that could be possible be used for 10GbE, no embedded memory ie if a module fails is an easy fix, has HDMI. On the other hand it doesn't have something equivalent to SHR which means upgrading storage might be more complicated or involve a higher investment. Doesn't have M.2 NVME support which is not a deal breaker.

I like Synology but on paper this QNAP unit looks like a better choice. Will hold to see if an 8 bay deal comes up. Hopefully also a model that has EEC memory.
You can add NVME to QNAP with PCIE card. A big difference you overlooked if you want to use the NAS as security camera NVR is the QNAP has 8+4 license while the Synology only has 2 and the license fee for 10 is more than the cost of the QNAP.
This unit officially supports up to 8GB of ram, but I have 32gb installed in mine. Works great.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071H38422

I don't remember, however, seeing more than 40% of memory utilization even with Virtualization Station, Container Station, Surveillance Station and many other apps running at the same time, so 16GB should be sufficient as well.

Their TR-004 does RAID on its own so drives cannot be combined with internal ones. In this case it's not possible to achieve RAID6.

https://www.qnap.com/en/how-to/fa...-comes-up-

2 more bays here costs $110 extra while TR-004 is priced at $175.

Just wondering if there's any chance to get it at $520 (last year). Or maybe b&h / Adorama will get some deals, currently they only match $440 for TS-453D.

I literally unboxed this from Amazon last night having paid $688. Currently in a chat now to try get an adjustment - they are not budging. I'll likely have to return it and rebuy from NewEgg.

QNAP claims you can only go to 8GB, but experts have gotten 32GB (2*16GB) to be detected. Not all RAM sticks can be detected so do your homework first. Feel free to post a deal for 2*16GB DDR4 if you find one.

What is rTorrentPro and how do we get it? I'm currently using the 453 model.
