Synology SNV3000 Series NVMe M.2 SSD

Synology started out having its own brand of RAM for as long as I can remember. I covered them back in 2017. After that they went on to have its own brand of M.2 NVMe SSD (SNV3000), SATA SSD (SAT5200), and SATA HDD (HAT5300).

One of the reasons Synology introduces their own lineup of SSD and HDD is for compatibility. The SSD and HDD are optimized for use with their own Synology NAS with customized firmware. Also, when things go wrong, the users don’t need to contact different vendors. They can bring it all back to Synology.

Synology DDR4 RAM (ECC)

I posted about Synology DDR4 RAM last June, and at that time, there were only five types of Synology DDR4 RAM available, out of which only there is only one ECC SO-DIMM which is the D4ECSO-2666-16G.

With the launch of the Synology 21 series, Synology added two more ECC SO-DIMM to their range of Synology DDR4 RAM. There are the D4ES01-4G and D4ES01-8G.

Synology DiskStation DS1621+ Review

I decided to upgrade my slightly more than three years old 4-bay Synology DiskStation DS918+ to the 6-bay Synology DiskStation DS1621+.

Back in 2017, DS918+ was the flagship Synology 4-bay NAS and that was replaced with DS920+ in 2020. Also in 2020, the 5-bay DS1520+ got updated.

Ugreen USB 3.0 Extension Cable

If you need any type of cable for your gadgets, Ugreen will probably have them.

I was looking for a USB Extension Cable to extend out from the USB charging port of my Aeon Labs Aeotec Z-Wave Smart Switch 6 (Gen5). This will allow Li Xiang to use the Xiaomi USB Fan to circulate the wind around her plants.

ASUSTOR Lockerstor 4 (AS6604T) Review

When I think of NAS, there are always three brands that came to my mind. Synology, QNAP, and ASUSTOR. All three brands are from Taiwan. I reviewed Synology NAS many times and did my first QNAP NAS review in December.

To complete the trilogy, I have with me the Asustor Lockerstor 4 (AS6604T) which is equivalent to the Synology DS920+ and QNAP TS-453D. All three models are 4-bay NAS, powered by Intel Celeron J4125 and comes with 4GB of DDR4 ram. Intel J4125 is a 4-core 2.0 GHz (burstable to 2.7 GHz) processor.
