You might not get the same user experience comparing with other better known brands. But sometimes you might not need it. Unlike the XS5224D this box has the 4005 Controller processor. Another key difference between the XS5224D is RAM. X2U24-7.2TB-CNC arrives with 16GB RAM. The X2U24-7.2TB-CNC 16GB RAM compared with XS5224D 2x 8GB is clearly weaker.

General Performance

The XS5224D unlike the X2U24-7.2TB-CNC is made by Qsan. There always other brands out there like Qsan which are often innovative. You might not get the same user experience comparing with other better known brands. But sometimes you might not need it. 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. Unlike the X2U24-7.2TB-CNC this box has the Intel® Xeon® D-1500 family 4-core processor processor. This box has Xeon processor. These processors usually are used in solutions where you cannot afford even shortest downtime. They usually come with biggest cache size. If processor comes with ECC (Error detection and correction) technology, it prevents server ever to go offline. Useful for accounting or bidding systems with no place for error. Another key difference between the X2U24-7.2TB-CNC is RAM. XS5224D arrives with 2x 8GB RAM. Size of 2x 8GB makes XS5224D the best regards to RAM capacity.

About Connections

There are two SAS ports on this XS5224D box. When we are talking SAS, we talk FAST. You are either serious video editor or graphic designer, and there is no place for lagging transfer speeds.

About Usage

As there are no LAN ports, you probably know this is DAS (directly attached storage) box. Sometimes more than anything we need speed! If you have chosen right drives for your XS5224D box, you can expect the best performance whilst you are editing your videos or working with graphics. Only disadvantage with DAS boxes, is data sharing capabilities, compared with NAS functionality. 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 Intel® Xeon® D-1500 family 4-core processor 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.

Price And Warranty

This box comes with 3 year warranty for your peace of mind and long term hardware security. Despite X2U24-7.2TB-CNC has better warranty, it is still good to know that you have your three years of no worries manufacturer cover. This Qsan is £4,363.00 cheaper than the most expensive unit X2U24-7.2TB-CNC.
