  • Intel Celeron Apollo Lake J3455
  • 2 Bay
  • 2 GB RAM (Expandable to 8 GB)

Adorama changed the price on their website after it was changed on Amazon. This deal beats Amazon so repurposing it for the better deal.

No tax was tacked on for me (Michigan).
I believe this ties the last front page deal

One reason for these is they have low power requirements — typically no more than 20w under load. That i3-9100 system will probably pull 60w or more under load. There are many reasons to go one route or another. These boxes are usually simple to set up and manage. Your solution works but takes more technical know-how.

PCIe slot for this NAS is a killer application. The only drawback I found is that it only has two 3.5 inch HDD slots (which is enough for most users).

They do have the 4 bay model which is $50 off right now. Better than nothing but not enough for me to post to Slickdeals

Some of the reviews with support complaints sound terrible. I was tempted to try this to mix with Synology, but perhaps I should leave well enough alone.

a better processor (451+ processor is years old) and this one can be used for 4k transcoding without adding additional hardware. The 451+ is ideal for 1080p.

Current QNAP owner here. Know that there is an as-yet-unpatched exploit for all QNAPs. The current solution to avoid the malware is to "not connect it to a network", which is ridiculous for a *network* attached storage device.

From my understanding it was fixed already. Update the firmware and the malware remover app https://www.qnap.com/en-us/news/2...e-qnap-nas

Edit: yes, another site also said the malware app now removes it if you have the latest version
