so.. coming up to 3.5years on since building my 1282, same for some of you guys..

How are they all fairing?

I have had:
  • 1 completely failed drive with the message "disk unplugged" - replaced under warranty and rebuilt RAID
  • 1 drive showed me ID 197 / ID 198 errors - replaced it and rebuilt RAID
  • 2 broken drive bays - the spring mechanism on the front has snapped due to cheap plastic (worrying as only ever removed two disks very carefully)
Any ideas where to get replacement drive bays? I will try support but would actually really prefer some more substantial metal bays if anyone has a source

I've had 1 failed drive and 2 drives flag up needing replacement but I think that was a bug as a scan of the drives came back healthy. rebooting the NAS would solve it. Still replaced the drives though and I'll eventually get round to checking them on a PC and using WD diagnostic software to see if they are indeed failed.

Had some issues on 4.3.x where mono would use a lot of RAM and get terminated. on 4.4.1 and it's not occured.

Had another issue that very few people seem to have had - i posted on the QNAP forum for it, so another individual firmware bug.

All in all, not bad. Need to swap out the CPU and other parts later this month or next.

Mine is still running strong. My mods for the delidded 6700K on the cooling was to use the same OEM design and upgraded the centrifugal fan and used a heavier, more copper based block 2U passive heatsink along with a higher capacity 450W corsair SFX PSU. My unit is full with drives.
I have had 3 broken drive bays which I replaced. It is indeed the plastic opening mechanism in the front which came apart. Temperature spikes in the mid 60s under heavy load and runs steady in the low 40s with 3 VMs and 1 container. This NAS is also my dual WAN router, NVR for 16 cameras, network controller and home automation controller.
With the number of VMs I had, I only wish it was an 8th gen Core i7 so I could have put 12 or 16 threads in it instead of the 8.

32GB DIMM single sticks are now available. I wonder if the motherboard can support them. The webpage states 16GB max per slot but who knows.

Would also be keen for at least a 7700 processor for x265 hardware decoding but no one has dared try flashing a bios from the newer units, will probably wait and buy another NAS further down the line.

Have you had better results with the replacement drive bays? The ones that shipped with the units clearly have a design fault..

Well I put in drive bays which were brand new and never had to take them out. I am very careful with them now. Can't say that the new ones are any better in term of design. Lots of soft plastic...
I think the bios gets flashed with the firmware updates. If not, it probably would not have stopped me. I just don't think it is worth the trouble to go from a 6700K to a 7700K. I will wait a few more years. This is good enough as it is.

also one broken drive bay.....no other issues :)

(will I see a drive failure tonight because I wrote this?)

All this time and still no good "replacement" for the TVS-1282T3...

what else would you need from a NAS?
Other than a newer CPU, I'm not sure what else could be improved. I refer to the HW, the SW can always be improved.

That's all I want. A HW CPU refresh. The formfactor and everything else is fine :) A 10th gen CPU would be nice, but a 9th gen would also be OK.

Indeed, I was looking forward to something like this as well:
New CPU with more cores for VMs. Potentially NVME m.2 instead of sata slots so that the unit can boot in 1-2min instead of 10-15min. Maintain the form factor.

Edit: discovered I would need the special 20 pin adapter. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Power-Supply-U ... 3030853128

I would like to upgrade the PSU to the SF 650 as well but was told the motherboard power plug was different on the QNAP motherboard. Can I just simply plug up the SF 650 in y TVS 882?

I don't think I'd pay ~2k+ for a new NAS just for those improvements. (CPU, NVME)
Though, I would very much like if the TVS-1282 was offered in a rackmount design, that might do it for me.

Hi, can anyone confirm that the TVS-872XT power supply is dual voltage, i.e. if I had a US model I can just plug it straight in to European 220/240v (with a different plug/cable)?
Thanks

according to the specs page it is 100-240V

doesn't really fit in this x82T thread
