Qnap Desktop NAS TS 251B 4G reviews


25/09/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
What is the maximum storage TS-251B-4G NAS can handle?
It is better to ask SPAN for free compatibility checks. But as today you could fill it with 2X 18TB Seagate Ironwolf. This would give you a total raw storage of 36TB
24/09/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Can I use any drives with this NAS?
Yes, but we would recommend to use WD Red or Seagate Ironwolf. They consume less energy and generate less vibration and noise.
23/09/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Can I upgrade the RAM on this NAS?
Looking at the specs, this NAS should allow RAM upgrade. Ask SPAN.COM for free compatibility checks.
22/09/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Can this be used as a Plex server on its own?
Yes, this NAS should have an App available to install and run Plex independently.
21/09/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Is this enclosure suitable for a SSD - such as Samsung EVO SATA III SSD
Yes, it will work with Samsung, WD or Seagate SSD. In fact this will improve the internal speed and make apps run faster.
12/04/2019 | Jon Sawers | GB Flag |
The description on the QNAP TS 251-B-4G refers to the processor of the unit as being both Dual and Quad core in various locations. Which is the correct value please?
