    Which is better between Synology and QNAP

    Both of them are great NAS brands – the top in the NAS category . This question is like which is better- iOS or android. Typically QNAP offers more hardware choices and hardware tweaking options. Synology on the other hand has more stable and easier software UI. The one you should go for , greatly depends on the actual requirement you have.


    How do I shut down QNAP NAS
    If you have the admin access to the web interface, then select shut down from the power menu. If not, press the power button for 1.5 seconds till you hear a beep. On doing this the system starts the shutdown process ( and it shows so on the LCD screen if your NAS has one). It takes about 5-7 minutes for the system to stop services, unmount volumes and then shutdown safely. If you want to shutdown immediately, then keep the power button pressed for 5 seconds – this is equivalent to pulling the power and may corrupt the volumes though.

    Which QNAP NAS is good to buy
    QNAP has a model for almost every single processor available so the choice of NAS is overwhelming. Generally 51K, 51+ and 53D are very popular models. Decision on which model to buy will greatly depend on what you want to use your NAS for, and your budget.

    How Does QNAP NAS work
