NAS + ​Pine64 ROCK64 = Few Important Questions
(04-13-2019, 05:36 AM)Luke Wrote: Hi Filip,

I think that you can probably achieve all you want and need with the Rock64. However, since you wish to use multiple drives I'd probably suggest using a RockPro64 with a PCIe->SATA adapter. This also leaves plenty of room for all sorts of expansion possible (since you'll still have USB 3 and C available).

There is also a nice case to fit it all if you want to.

My brilliant idea for a better disks performance is Power Supply Adapter 15W (5V/3A) for USB 3.0 HUB Confused I'm not sure if it really will have a real impact on performance. What do you think?

Literally today, before you wrote, I thought about the same solution. The problem is that only one of my hard drives has a SATA interface. Next two are IDE to USB 3.0 and ordinary USB 3.0 (Verbatim 750GB Store 'n' Go USB 3.0 2.5 Inch External Hard Drive Silver), respectively. I must, however, mention that for the past two days, I've read a lot about Rock64's incompatibility with USB 3.0 HUB (even with an additional power supply). Basically, through 'incompatibility' I mean many errors and a reduced performance. Well, I do not expect speed close to 640MBps. I am realist. After all, it would be much better to be able to operate at speeds closer to half that value than only at 20-30MBps Dodgy 

What's more, very nice OMV forum users told me that RAM in the NAS is not as important as I suspected, so I thought it would be better to buy Pine64 ROCKPro64 - Rockchip RK3399 Cortex A72 / A53 + 2GB RAM, rather than Pine64 ROCK64 - Rockchip RK3328 Cortex A53 Quad-Core 1.2GHz + 4GB RAM.

Have you got experience with connecting multiple hard drives to a RockPro64 and using simultaneously so many plugins & services? I prefer to find everything out earlier and invest in a different solution (e.g. Synology) rather than lose money.
