    I'm guessing that it's not the target for this model, but... the AnnapurnaLabs AL-314 seems to be quite weak, right?
    Wouldn't an Intel J4125 be the bare minimum right now, specially for such a high bandwidth capable NAS?

    Personally I think I'll end up going for a Synology DS920+ solely because of the SHR support (why the heck does no other brand have anything equivalent?), but... I've got to say, HW speaking, QNAP and ASUSTOR usually have much better price/performance than Synology.

    as an ex-QNAP customer (8-bay) I wouldn't buy one again, quality has gone down in the latest models, the old ones where all metal and managed to tame the noise of even 8x12Tb down to an acceptable level now they are mostly plastic,the cpus are too weak..meh..this is a brand that really feel like they do zero research and upgrade to their hardware, the recent 10gbe asustor (that sadly seem to be a ghost product for me, can't manage to find one) look like a better alternative in 2020

    sorry for the maybe obscure comparison but QNAP reminds me of Subaru and Mitsubishi, both of which stopped making sportscar (owned an sti and evo irl) because they never worked on making newer less polluting engines compared to european brands some companies do as little as they can while and "pull the rope" until it snaps

    SFP cables aren't exactly cheap either, doubt people who have an SFP network would use such a "low end" case doesn't seem to ba an existing market to me, should have been 10gbe ethernet
