我想買部 QNAP TS-431 當 DOCKING 咁用可以嗎???

我打算只係用 USB 線連接佢同電腦, 之後就當普通 DOCKING 咁用, 唔知得唔得??

咁點解唔用docking?錢多?

靚野介紹    We're on the same channel

People would say, paying so much for a DAS, why not just grab a NAS.

NAS and DAS serve different purposes.  If you're going to attach the device directly to a client pc via usb 3.0 (and w/o the need of those extra features provided by NAS device), it seems DAS is the goal.  In addition, DAS is also good for backup purpose.

Some of the multi-bay external hdd enclosures for your reference:

Century; very reliable; expensive

Icydock; very reliable; expensive

Unitek; very reliable; less expensive

(I'm using the 2-bay version.  It was attached to NAS running at 24x7)

N.B.:
To my understanding, multi-bay external hdd enclosure is different from docking (w/o external case and fan) in the way, the former is designed for "長時間運作" as well as having raid capability.

Although I've bad experience (個別事件) with Century ext hdd exclosure, their products are good (in general).

Icydock and century are having higher build quality.

I do not recommend Orico.

Ts-431 $1900
$1900 應該買唔到 4bay bocking.
雖然 “O” 牌係有, 但 data 冇價。
而且自己本身用緊 qnap 感覺良好, 所以先唸住買個 nas 尼當 docking 用。

自己同埋屋企人既相同 video 又唔想 link up到 internet, 所以唸住用 docking 解決。

而現在用緊既 nas 裡面只係得 歌, 戲 同埋 software.

望一望先。

nas 唔一定出街。我舊的NAS己做了我的B T機和出街share有些文件。新NAS唔出街,有大量影片,photo.

TS-431 is good.  And I've no problem using it as a 'docking' ... I did think of doing so .  Btw, you cannot just connect it to your PC via USB 3.0 (I suppose you know that), a router/giga switch is still required.

One of the reasons why I'm still a fan of DAS is the support of NTFS, which is fully compatible (read/write) in Windows and NAS environments.  For instance, today I'm using it with my Win client pc, next week I may plug it into the NAS as an ext storage device.

ps.  Currently I've a 2-bay DAS and two 2-bay dockings (one of it was bought almost 10 yrs ago, it still works!).   All are Unitek products.
