QNAP's smart home storage solution is a great-looking system with excellent hardware, superior performance, and a surprisingly affordable price tag. The Intel processor offers unmatched reliability and stability, while its four cores deliver maximum processing power. The NAS is excellently scalable, as the storage can be easily scaled up and expanded using two 2.5" or 3.5" drives. This creates an easy-to-use storage solution suitable for data backup, file synchronisation and sharing, remote access, and multimedia applications.

Key features

  • Linux operating system support with direct output to HDMI
  • Dual HDMI output for switching between duplicate and extended desktop options
  • AES-NI hardware accelerated encryption
  • On-the-fly video transcoding
  • Quick file search using intuitive real time search with Qsirch 2.1
  • Unified NAS and iSCSI-SAN storage solution for virtualisation
  • Intuitive and modern QTS operating system
  • Multimedia library support with DLNA

Effective multi-tasking

The heart of the system is a quad-core 1.6GHz Intel Celeron processor, made with 14nm manufacturing technology. Its clock speed automatically rises to up to 2.08GHz under heavy load, so it can easily offset any performance fluctuations. The processor is backed by efficient DDR3L system memory with the SO-DIMM design known from laptops. Two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces handle network performance and can be used in the so-called “port merge” mode. The disk controller supports RAID 1,0 and JBOD technologies with AES-NI hardware encryption for up to 224MB/s, for both NAS and shared folders. This improves system performance and security.

Ready for the IoT era

Dual QTS-Linux systems on this device use modern QNAP virtualisation technologies. The advanced architecture allows you to download many applications from QTS App Center or QTS App Center as well as develop or use IoT packages for Linux and view them through HDMI output. Connect your keyboard, mouse and HDMI monitor to the TS-253A Linux station and use it as if you were working on your PC. It can also be run as a remote desktop for instant management through a web browser.

Great for multimedia

Through the HDMI interface, you can connect NAS to any viewer, projector or home cinema, and enjoy high-definition multimedia content with 7.1 sound . Watch videos on YouTube or browse the web. It features an infrared remote with an intelligent function to program frequently used functions and buttons. The device also does not forget to support Google Drive, Dropbox, and more.

Simple and effective QTS 4.2 interface

The modern QTS 4.3 system serves to provide an easy and intuitive way to control your smart home NAS. Its advanced flat concept optimises load times and intelligent desktop allows you to quickly search for functions, create desktop shortcuts, or monitor critical system information in real time. You don’t have to settle for just one system, either. In-built virtualisation support makes your NAS even more versatile. Create virtual machines, back up, restore - all in a simple web interface.

Many options

The NAS also includes other advanced features, such as backup options through NetBak Replicator or Apple Time Machine or the ability to host www servers, FTP servers or VPNs with L2TP/IPsec, OpenVPN, or PPTP support. Another bonus is the option of using it as a professional solution for 24/7 surveillance. Karaoke fans will appreciate its two 6.3mm connectors for connecting up to two dynamic microphones.
