Qnap Desktop NAS TS 431X2 2G reviews
What is the maximum storage TS-431X2-2G NAS can handle?
28/10/2020 | 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?
27/10/2020 | 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?
26/10/2020 | Guest
Yes, you can migrate from Basic single disk to RAID 1
Can I upgrade the RAM on this NAS?
25/10/2020 | Guest
Looking at the specs, this NAS should allow RAM upgrade. Ask SPAN.COM for free compatibility checks.
Is this enclosure suitable for a SSD - such as Samsung EVO SATA III SSD
24/10/2020 | Guest
Yes, it will work with Samsung, WD or Seagate SSD. In fact this will improve the internal speed and make apps run faster.
Would you like to tell us about a lower price for TS-431X2-2G?Link to a TS-431X2-2G review page I bought a TS-431X2 in 2G option and 4 WD Red in 2TB option and had the company build it in RAID 1 option. I am pleased with the result as this handles my home business data beautifully. I was concerned about speed and safety of my business data and I feel comfortable and happy with the result.
