QNAP TVS-1282T3 real world review
on Sep 4, 2017 at 2:31:35 pm

A real world review of the QNAP TVS-1282T3 with a comparison with a Synology is up on YouTube. With a mention of Red 8k editing over this box.

Does anyone have other read-write figures for this box?

Part 1 - Unboxing & Setup:




Part 2 - Working with 8K Footage & Benchmarks:




Part 3 - Shootout with the Synology DS1515+ & Conclusions:

Hi Neil -
the TVS-871T, the TVS-1272T and the TVS-1282T3 are all fantastic boxes that can edit 4K all day long for multiple people. Because Thunderbolt 3 can only be 2 meters away from the workstation, it makes it very impractical to use this. It is so simple to get a small 8 port Netgear 10G switch, and some cheap thunderbolt to 10G boxes, and get 800 MB/sec (you need 143 MB/sec to do Red 6K at 5:1 compression).

I don't understand why this reviewer says that the 1282T is an expensive box - it's $2700 US price, and the larger
TS-1685 (which I truly love - 12 drives, 4 SSD's and free dual 10Gbase-T ports) is only $300 more !. Exactly what is expensive about this, compared to any other shared storage system.

His review and comparison of the Synology is unfair - because if you add 10G port and a minimum of 8 drives to the Synology (and choose the correct model) you will get wonderful results. And while I have never tested the 12 bay Netgear ReadyNAS (which is about $4300) I bet this performs equally well.

The important thing is that high performance shared storage systems have become a commodity item, and are available to anyone at a very affordable price. Prices of thunderbolt adaptors, like the Promise SanLink3 for thunderbolt 3 are now $299 retail, and the new iMac Pro will have free built in 10G ports. It's rumored that QNAP will have a small 8 port 10G switch soon for $290 (no typing error here).

Of course, all the "established manufacturers" will say all of this is junk. I have no idea of how they will stay in business.

Bob, now that we are 5 months later and that some of your favorites have been discontinued. What QNAP boxes are currently standing out as favorites? Does the Thunderbolt ports on some boxes have any value to you at all? As you've reported, the 10g connectivity has many advantages and seemed to have greater performance too, over TB. Although I prefer rack-mountable, it seems that the 1282T3 is compelling. So, what are the standout boxes at the moment?

Thanks,

Robert

The TVS-871T, TVS-1282T and the TVS-1282T3 are still all being sold in the US. In Europe, you can't get the TVS-871T


The best value without question is the TS-1685. It's under $3000, has 12 SATA slots, 4 SSD slots, and 2 built in 10GbaseT ports with 16 Gig of RAM. That is a value. That is the best "bang for the buck".
