All your NAS Are belong to us!

Hi all…

I love storage but the problem is, I have a small house and I can’t afford what I want, so I settled for 4 Bay Nas.

This is what I want… But no justification for it whatsoever…..and I can’t afford it….and I don’t need it.  But it would definitely keep the basement warm in the winter.

Instead, back around 2015, I bought myself a QNAP TS-451P+ with 4x 3TB drives….then later i updated to 4x 4TB drives and its been solid and working great!.

However, in the last few months, I have noticed that its poor little ARM processor is having problems keeping up with the increased demand I have put on it.

Virtualization, Constant backups running from my macs, and video streaming all take its toll so I decided to upgrade!

Enter the QNAP TS-451+.

I miss having the display on the front but its got pretty flashing LED’s so it ok….

I will keep the old TS-419P+ kicking around since it still works as a storage server and really works well as long as I don’t overload it.
