4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to Upgrade the RAM
Reviewed in the United States on 18 July 2019
This review is for 2019 version of the QNAP TS-253Be. Before purchasing this product I did lots of NAS research but I never could find the details of how difficult upgrading the RAM would be for this exact NAS model. I'm writing this review to let anyone wondering the same that replacing the RAM is VERY EASY! Once the hard drives are removed, all that is required is to slide two locking tabs to the unlock position and remove two screws. Then simply slide the plastic outer case into two pieces to access the two RAM slots.

I upgraded the 2 GB version I purchased to 8 GB without any problems. You can find people who have installed 16 GB of RAM even though QNAP says the max supported for this model is 8 GB and Intel's documentation for the chip says the same. I've seen screens showing 16 GB recognized by the QNAP OS (QTS) but have never seen QTS showing it is using more than 8 GB. If anyone out there can prove the system will actually use more than 8 GB please upload a screen shot!

I gave the NAS 4 stars so far mainly because the way you setup shared folder permissions could be simpler while still providing maximum flexibility. I also don't like that the default admin account cannot be deleted and that the OS continues to display warnings I've checked as do not show again.

If you are thinking about getting into the NAS space I suggest looking over articles on and watching the guy's youtube videos. This guy really has a ton of good information for new buyers to consider.
