Qnap nas selector no longer exist like it did years ago and Synology nas selector is some limited in my opinion.

Upgrade memory is a necessity and the possibility to use third party brand memory sticks like crucial and pny is important.
Qnap and Synology memory are just outrageously expensive!!

Inexperience full-stack web developer and recent graduate trying to practice @ home while waiting to get a job.
Any recommendation would be appreciated.

I never buy 'branded' RAM or upgrade via the manufacturer's website. Buy a good brand, match the specs, you'll be good.

I have 16gb of Kingston HyperX ram running in my qnap ts-563 which originally had 2gb.

HyperX has served me well too.

I notice alot from internet search persons refering to using third-party rams with qnap as opposed to synology or others.
Would you recommend qnap by any chance?

when I was increasing memory in my NAS I just was looking google my NAS and check what RAM modules people were using. I bought advised RAM and it is working.

I suppose. Qnap and Synology both have areas where they are weak IMO and have areas they are good at too. But, *for my usage* , qnap has served me well over the last few years running 24/7. I prefer the flexibly of having root access to my 10+ year old D-Link nas which also runs 24/7 still, though it is undersized and under powered now, so is essentially for document storage only.

Carefully look at what you realistically expect to get out of a Nas and see which brand fills those needs best.

Similar to routers, I see too many people trying to overload their devices with tasks they were not truly designed to handle and are then disappointed.
