Qnap 19"Rack NAS TS 977XU 1200 4G reviews
What is the maximum storage TS-977XU-1200-4G NAS can handle?
28/09/2020 | Guest
It is better to ask SPAN for free compatibility checks. But as today you could fill it with 4X 18TB Seagate Ironwolf. This would give you a total raw storage of 72TB
Can I use any drives with this NAS?
27/09/2020 | Guest
Yes, but we would recommend to use WD Red or Seagate Ironwolf. They consume less energy and generate less vibration and noise.
Can I add a 2TB HDD and a 2nd one later with RAID1?
26/09/2020 | Guest
Yes, you can migrate from Basic single disk to RAID 1
Can I upgrade the RAM on this NAS?
25/09/2020 | Guest
Looking at the specs, this NAS should allow RAM upgrade. Ask SPAN.COM for free compatibility checks.
Would you like to tell us about a lower price for TS-977XU-1200-4G?Link to a TS-977XU-1200-4G review page Is this enclosure suitable for a SSD - such as Samsung EVO SATA III SSD
24/09/2020 | Guest
Yes, it will work with Samsung, WD or Seagate SSD. In fact this will improve the internal speed and make apps run faster.
