Re: QNAP TVS-882 - 250W vs 450W

Hi -
I will reply below -
I use the TVS-872XT all the time. It's the modern replacement for the TVS-871T, and it is certainly as powerful in performance as the TVS-1282T3, which I never use (Because the TS-1685 and the TS-1677X are the same price and more powerful).

You want 5 computers ? You get a switch, like a Netgear XS708T. You will be very unhappy with multiple computers with Thunderbolt 3. And even if you don't listen to me - you have a single 10G port and two thunderbolt 3 ports on the TVS-872XT. The other 2 ports are 1G. Exactly what are you planning to do - install a QNAP LAN-10G2T-X550 dual port 10G card into the PCIe slot of the TVS-872XT for the other 2 connections to your computers ?

I don't know what the total aggregate bandwidth is for 6 or 8 SSD's in the TVS-872XT. With 7200 RPM SATA drives, you get about 1100 - 1200 MB/sec. With SSD's, I guess its greater, but I don't know when you will start your bottleneck in performance, when you are running 5 stations.

Yes, you cannot connect a computer via the USB port to the QNAP. That is for an external drive.

IF you decide to not get a switch (you are crazy to not get a switch), you put each computer on a different subnet -
so computer # 1 is and that goes to a QNAP port at
computer # 2 is, and that goes to QNAP port at

I do this every day - this is what I do.
Let me know if you need help -
