  1. Performance seems to be the obvious thing that comes to mind. Or redundancy.
  2. Newegg link for your convenience. 100167523 600457700&IsNodeId=1&Description=4tb hard drive&bop=And&Order=PRICE&PageSize=96
  3. Software is the hard part, I assume QNAP's existing OS can already make use of it? Only other hard part is that for some of the applications you're talking about, you may want a GPU instead of two 2C/4T low-TDP Kaby Lake cores, so I wonder how much performance and how many actual sales they'll see from this. The relatively low TDP seems like it might be the most fundamental performance issue compared to the cost.
  4. Did I miss any actual pricing comparisons? Not that you need to do them all the time, but might be useful once in a while. (is the exact price, even MSRP/ESP, mentioned at all? If so, I think I missed it!)
  5. Which generation IMFT NAND is it again? I know you say 3D eTLC, but is it the older 32-layer stuff or something else? Just curious! (I know, I know, Anandtech says, but I'd rather go to SR ).
  6. Any SMART data on the OCZ?
  7. Hmm, no idea then. I have zero experience with the NEC stuff. :-/
  8. Have you been able to find any specific documentation that card (smells like it's a Dell special?)? Especially regarding a possible activation key for additional features? I don't think it's a standard LSI product so something may be nerfed in the firmware. Any idea if it's closer to the 9266-8i?
  9. Might be worth mentioning the Quadro M2000 in the comparison is 2x the price of the WX3100... Quadro P600 is probably a more appropriate competitor at this price point.
  10. The only vendor I can find with a listing is Span, and they don't show even a price at the moment. ST12000NM0007 (SATA, 512e) version and ST12000NM0047 (SATA, 4Kn)... didn't check for the rest.
  11. Technological differences or actual performance? Reviews cover both areas fairly well. What sort of use? If this is typical or even enthusiast desktop use, you're not going to see a difference in actual use short of timing everything with a stopwatch for benchmarks...
  12. Spec sheet in the article says it's preconfigured for RAID0 and preformatted as exFAT. As long as your OS supports exFAT I don't see why not.
  13. Hmm. Well, graphics in the article with a few more cards would be nice if nothing else?
  14. Is there a comparison database or anything with all the SD/microSD cards you guys have tested anywhere? Just curious if the 128GB one got tested and I'm not seeing the review...
  15. SMR performance has gotten more than a few tweaks as time as gone on, I think Anandtech's got a more recent review than the original Archive 8TB that had better performance. I'd be curious how that handled RAID use. As interesting as a possible SMR + PMR for rebuilds could be, I don't think long-term that's going to be as useful because long-term, it sounds like PMR drives will go away. (also, as a nitpick, I'd much rather see RAID6 testing than RAID5, especially given that the UBER's start to catch up to you when you're taking volumes this big...)
