All time low.

QNAP TS-451+ 4-Bay 2GB NAS

I bought one for $360 USD earlier this year (before any extra cost). Great NAS for home or small office. It’s super easy to upgrade the ram using regular laptop RAM.

Even with conversation, shipping and duty/tax to Canada, it’s cheaper than buying it local.

I bought the Synology DS918+ for around $800 all in with 2 years extended warranty. Does anybody know how this compares to it?

that's a good deal. bought the TS-451 (non + version) years ago for $399 and never hit that price again..

and with conversion this is similiar price point.

Same here. It was from Memory Express Boxing Day deal in 2015 IIRC. Been using it in my office since and been working flawlessly (Upgraded the ram to 4gb a while ago)

For home use: $50-100 for used i3-i5, $100 for a 2nd 4tb drive as file server; and $100 for external USB 3 drive works best.

For SOHO, this is hot!

Did you factor energy cost?

Right now I'm in process of switching from server to NAS with raspberry Pi for all downloading needs.

But I'm cheap and trying to find some on Kijiji :)

Old i3-i5 uses way to power to keep running 24/7.

My AMD A4 is very low power, i3 is just a guideline. But yeah a pi (no drives) would be 31 kWh/yr; while my pc with drives is 1020 kWh/yr.

So much will the drives take on their own? even at no power for the drives won't be over $75/year in power and I find upgrading is more flexible. also can run the pc to do to a lot more tasks; albeit a pi would be nice I haven't found a free one at e-recycling depots

I feel silly spending $650 on TS-453Be 10 months ago. But my old NAS died and I needed a replacement in a hurry...

Synology is more expensive. BUT, user interface and support is generally felt to be better.

IT JUST WORKS.


QNAP > FreeNAS/Xpenology.

I ran the freenas/Xpenology thing for a bit. The PC I used (Core2duo) was hot and loud. AND I was worried about failure. For my usage (critical backups); I ended up coughing up the dough for a true Synology.

Your 918+ is a great choice. Premium pricing; but good choice

From what I can see, this is a 2016 model. Any concern with the end of life coming up soon? Debating about buying.

Your synology is way better, unless you need the money because this one is way cheaper.

I have 2 highend QNAP's at home collecting dust because i prefer to use my little Synology ds218+. So much easier to setup/maintain/etc. Set it up with auto updates and forgot it. Probably will play around with the QNAP's as they have very good hardware and specs, but in my personal experiences if you care about specs just build your own. Read the reviews on QNAP's software and features before you decide you jump ship.
