QNAP TVS-882 - 250W vs 450W
on Jan 8, 2020 at 12:16:20 am

Hi there everyone,
First time posting here. Thank you for any help you can provide.
I'm working on a new post-production workflow for a small production company.
We have narrowed down the NAS we want to buy to the QNAP TVS-882-i5-16G.
(With four 7.86 TB Micron 5210 ION SSDs.)

I am wondering if it is worth the extra $300-ish in order to get the 450W power supply vs. the base level 250W.
What sort of a difference would this provide?
Do we need the boosted power supply?
I'm just trying to wrap my mind around what this means.

Also, should I buy the extra 10Gbe expansion port?
I assume this would go in the one of the slots on the top left of the rear side of the NAS.
(As far as I understand, all the other ports are only 5Gbe.)
Is it worth the extra upgrade?

Again, thank you for any help and opinions you all can give us!
