General Performance

The TVS-1282T-i5-16G unlike the DS1817 is made by Qnap. By choosing Qnap people expect to see advanced configurations opportunities as well as innovative and more diverse business applications. You are able to customize the TVS-1282T-i5-16G to your needs. This model comes with new DDR4 technology random access memorty (RAM). DDR3 used to work at 800 MT/s (or Millions of Transfers per second) and some went as high as 2133. DDR4, starts at 2133 MHz. The increased speed means an overall increase in bandwidth. This unit also arrives with a One-touch Backup button on the front panel, when it is configured on the TVS-1282T-i5-16G, it can be used to backup data off of the USB device, or vice versa. Unlike the DS1817 this box has the NEW: Quad-core Intel i5-7500 3.4 GHz / OLD: i5-6500 processor. This box has i5 processor. Similarly like i7 it could likely have a "turbo boost" when needed. Another key difference between the DS1817 is RAM. TVS-1282T-i5-16G arrives with 16GB RAM. The TVS-1282T-i5-16G 16GB RAM compared with DS1817 4GB is clearly weaker.

About Connections

At the back of the box you will find HDMI port which will let you connect it to TV or monitor. In this case you are not limited to network speeds. You might be interested in audio output ports. With TVS-1282T-i5-16G you can build a personal karaoke system with high-quality audio output. With six LAN ports this box is making good enterprise level NAS. There are two Thunderbolt ports on TVS-1282T-i5-16G. Thunderbolt2 performance allows amateur professionals, photographers, audio engineers, and video post-production engineers to unleash the power and performance of Qnap giving you speeds up to 20Gb/s. Five USB3 ports on this Qnap is offering you up to 5Gb/s transfer speeds of external devices. It is fast enough to get your files through fairly quickly with this speed and make backing up with an external drive or Apple Time Machine a quick and easy process.

About Usage

With 8 bay unit you are having additional advantages. You can choose from number of RAID solutions to set up. There could be RAID that saves your data even if one of the drives fail so you can still recover your data. This would be slightly more safe option to keep your data. Besides you can still access your documents or media files over your private network or even internet. You may install Plex Media Server on this box. Plex lets you easily create a feature rich and practical home media playback system. Some boxes offer real time transcoding functionality. That let you stream your media hustle free, based on your device speed or screen size. Please contact us to find transcoding compatibility list.

PLEX TRANSCODING


This NAS feature NEW: Quad-core Intel i5-7500 3.4 GHz / OLD: i5-6500 processor which will let you transcode videos on the PLEX. This will allow you to watch videos remotely from anywhere you can connect to the internet. The i3 CPU will transcode all HD and Full HD videos including quite few 4K videos. The i5 and i7 will pretty much transcode any video you want. The difference will be the number of simultaneous streams. The i7 obviously can cope with more streams than i5.

Synology DS1817 PROS

designThis Standard 8-Bay NAS is the lower tier alternative to the popular DS1817+ NAS from Synology. That said, the sleek, modern and compact chassis design from Synology is still a firm favourite for many and also quieter than most. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
featuresThough it lacks the higher end Intel CPU of the bigger PLUS model, the Annapurna CPU found in this device is the perfect blend of speed and multi-purpose use for multiple file exchanges across many folders and applications. Likewise, it can be used in more conventional home uses like Plex (without transcoding), Surveillance, mail servers, Apple Time Machine and more. It may not be breath takingly fast, but it is more than enough for most to get by with.
performanceWith an above average read and write and multiple gigabit LAN ports (RJ45), ease of use, versatility of the operating software and more, if this is your first or second NAS, you will be pleasantly surprised at how well it performs for your day to day tasks in a home or small office environment.
valueThis unit is priced evenly in their 'food-chain' of NAS devices. You will not be paying top dollar for this unit, however you do get what you pay for in terms of overall power and ability.
Synology DS1817 CONS

designHowever this design This design is becoming a little stale so many years after release and could well be due an upgrade.
featuresAs soon as you want to perform more business class or power consuming applications, you will hit the limits with this unit. It is a mid range NAS device and should be treated as such.
performanceIf you are looking for a more business concentric NAS that will be able to smoothly handle a multi user access environment or more graphically demanding task will find this device rather limiting. In those cases, I have no hesitation in recommending the Synology DS1817+ NAS
valueFor those thinking longer term, it is worth considering spending a little more and going for the more powerful NAS device so you can grow and expand your needs within the lifespan of your hardware. I would recommend the Synology DS1517+ NAS https://www.span.com/product/Synology-8-Bay-DiskStation-NAS-DS1817+-2GB-SATA-HD-RAID-0-1-5-6-PCIe~61415
