Qnap Desktop NAS TVS 682 i3 8G reviews
What is the maximum storage TVS-682-i3-8G 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.
Dear Span, With regards to the CPU and Pricing, is the 7th Gen model any more expensive then the 6th gen variant?
06/08/2019 | Darren
The new model will come populated with Intel's 7th Gen CPU. The 6th Gen is no longer sold.

QNAP have silently bumped the processors from 6th generation to 7th generation. Which version are you stocking?
23/07/2018 | Scotty
We order directly from Qnap - I would say we would get the newer generation. Please ask one of our sales team to check for you when you purchase
