Hello, welcome to Newegg!
How can I help you?
i am considering DS216play vs Qnap TS-431
whats your advice?
Spencer J.
One moment please.
TS-431 has more bays, more USB ports, an additional ethernet port and eSATA support.
yeah but what about the power
?
Spencer J.
DS216 does have a faster processor, more RAM, but less USB
what would you go for?
Spencer J.
I would go with the TS-431 with the higher capabilities, it still has enough performance to do what it needs.
do you think i can run a VM in there?
with that power
Spencer J.
for a VM go with DS216
ok. i'll go with the DS216
Spencer J.
Alright
