Qnap have 4 TB on the list as well. You probably need to be fast to get any of the very few 4 TB disks available already now.mark887 wrote:Thanks for the fast reply but based on the compatibility charts from both company’s synology supports allot more disks and even 4TB disks have been rated...
Are you looking at the correct Qnap disk compatibility list? That disk have been on the Qnap list for a while now. Considering several bad experiences reported here in the forum by the customers that have already tried it, it wouldn't be my choice though. I'd much rather go with the better proven ST33000651AS if I were limited to Seagate only....and many desktop models like ST3000DM001.

That Qnap have the confidence to also allow such views in the forum (and thereby open up for occasional fake posts from the competition) and negative opinions about Qnap is one of the things that make this forum great.mark887 wrote:...synology thier good track record and excellent product reputation is clear even in QNAPs own forums
I have had a QNAP 639 Pro for several years and looking to upgrade. After looking again at QNAP, I think the Synology DS-1812+ is my current choice. I plan to populate with 3T drives.
Although the QNAP has been OK - it has lots of very minor quirks (like-which drive is the spare???) My biggest beef was when the power supply failed and QNAP took over a week to get one (ordered from wherever...) - they don't stock spares in Fremont. A bit surprising to me...
Would like to hear from anyone with *another* opinion!
