    synology questions

    Hello
    can anyone tell me the power consumption of the 106 and 406 please ?

    Also can the external USB HD be in FAT32 format ?

    How noisy is the 406 / 106 ?

    Thanks

    According to Synology, the external HD can be in EXT3 or FAT32 format. I don't know how large (and I want to know). Support for *reading* NTFS disks will come.

    The HD compatibility list is rather short.

    Perhaps I'm asking too hard question, it takes them several days to answer me... Or maybe you have found a better department to ask

    17W is very good, plus something like that for each working drive and a bit less each for idle drives. Not only is it interesting for energy-consuming, always having a computer on in a room makes it warm.
