Upgradable RAM module for ReadyNAS

640KB 256MB ought to be enough for anyone. I struck gold when I took apart the ReadyNAS Duo. Underneath the metal plates I found end-user changable RAM module! There doesn’t seems to be any warranty stickers on the chassis.

256MB is quite a lot for normal usage. If you are those linux fanatics who hope to make the ReadyNAS Duo a mini server running your web scripts + database + radius server + something something … Then 256MB is obviously not enough for you! Go for 1GB! Do take note that you need to have DDR400 modules.

Can’t wait to run memory intensive applications (e.g. MLDonkey) on the ReadyNAS!

    How much faster does it run, since your upgrade?

    Honestly, I’ve yet to find a suitable ram module for the ReadyNAS. It requires DDR1 modules which I don’t have.

    Having more RAM would reduce the amount of swapping and in turn improve performance. In fact, my ReadyNAS is comfortable with 256mb of ram. 🙂
