Backup and sync for contact lists and files are very convenient.

Dual-core ARM® v7 1.1GHz CPU
Powered by an ARM® v7 1.1GHz dual-core processor* with 2GB DDR3 RAM, the TAS-168 is designed as a personal cloud for home users, perfect for using as a media center for entertainment and education. The TAS-168 performs superbly as a home multimedia hub that efficiently downloads and backs up files while you are enjoying photos, music and videos with it.
*The TAS-168 is designed for lightweight home and entertainment applications, and may not work smoothly for CPU/GPU-heavy applications, such as Android video calls, 3D graphics or large games and apps.

QTS facilitates central management and file sharing
The QTS operating system provides a web-based user interface to help you easily manage files on the TAS-168. You can install various apps based on your needs to fulfill tasks like storage, backup, management and multimedia applications. File Station allows you to upload, download and manage files anywhere with a web browser. All of your photos, music and videos can be indexed by the built-in Media Library, and easily managed and shared with the Photo Station, Music Station and Video Station. The energy-saving Download Station is your 24/7 download center, allowing you to quickly download files to enrich your collection. QTS also enables you to open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater operating efficiency.

TAS plus NAS to fulfill more tasks
In addition to working independently, the TAS-168 can also be used with another QNAP NAS to handle more applications.
QTS RTRR/rsync functions can help back up files on the TAS-168 to another NAS, securing data with double protection. With the Android™ interface displayed via HDMI, you can use apps like Qphoto, Qmusic and Qvideo to browse multimedia files on another QNAP NAS, or install the Vmobile app to monitor IP cameras from the Surveillance Station of another NAS. With another NAS (with QTS 4.2 or later), you can use File Station to directly mount shared folders from a remote TAS-168 by FTP, WebDAV, and CIFS/SMB. Various VPN apps available in Google Play™ can help stream media contents from blocked sites, or create a secure OpenVPN tunnel between the TAS-168 and another NAS to process remote backup tasks. File synchronization across devices and clouds
Qsync utility turns your TAS-168 into a safe, large-capacity data center for file synchronization. Any file uploaded to the TAS-168 will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops or mobile devices. Qsync is especially useful for frequent travelers to manage files and always have the most up-to-date files on different devices. You can also install the Cloud Drive Sync app from QTS App Center to easily sync files with Google Drive™ and Dropbox® cloud storage.

Cross-platform file sharing, centralized data storage
The TAS-168 supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, Linux®/UNIX® networks. Data, logs and ISO images of CDs and DVDs can be centrally stored on the TAS-168 and protected by an integrated antivirus solution.

Well-rounded backup & disaster recovery solutions
QNAP NetBak Replicator supports real-time and scheduled data backup on Windows®, and Time Machine® is also supported for Mac® data backup. The TAS-168's front-panel USB port features a one-touch-copy function for you to instantly back up data from external drives to the TAS-168 with just one click, or alternatively to back up data from the TAS-168 to external drives. Disaster recovery solutions including RTRR, rsync and cloud storage backup (Amazon® S3, Amazon® Glacier, Microsoft® Azure, ElephantDrive®, Dropbox® and Google Cloud Storage™) are also included.

Android Station eases remote security management

You can control the access rights of each user to different folders, preventing unauthorized access to important files.

A private cloud without constrains
In contrast to the limited storage space and potential security issues with public cloud services, the TAS-168 is advantageous for establishing a secure and large-capacity private cloud. The myQNAPcloud service allows remote access to files stored on the TAS-168 and supports automatic port forwarding for UPnP routers, My DDNS service and CloudLink, allowing you to easily access files, share multimedia, and check your system status from anywhere.

Access and enjoy with your tablets and smartphones

Light, handy, and tool-less design

Qnap Android NAS TAS 168 reviews

So is this the final solution to reproduce H265 files on TV?

Reply from SPAN.COM | 03/12/2015


One of many that are in production for this Q3 in NAS. Others are the DS216PLAY from Synology, the TS-253A from QNAP and the Synology DS716+. We have videos on all three available on our channel to give you a better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses, as well as specs and purchasing details with SPAN.COM. The Synology DS716+ is here - https://www.span.com/product/Synology-2-Bay-DiskStation-NAS-DS716-SATA-HD-RAID-0-1~51145 The QNAP TS-253A-4G is here - https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Desktop-NAS-TS-253A-4G-2-Bay-RAID-0-1-4GB-RAM-~52839 The Synology DS216PLAY is here - https://www.span.com/product/Synology-2-Bay-DiskStation-NAS-DS216play-SATA-HD-RAID-0-1~51092 I've had your attention this far, could you indulge me a little longer? Why not purchase your 4K NAS directly from us. We ship Worldwide and I think you'd be surprised how low we can go with shipping prices. It won't cost you anything to find out. Simply send your name and address (plus of course confirming the device you want) to robbie@span.com or even sales@span.com and they will get back to you within the hour with the best price and shipping (maybe even free) to you. Then at least you have the answer. Let's be honest, you have the guys like Amazon and Ebay to go for, but we are selling a solution, not just a box (I am aware how 'salesman' that sounded, but bear with me). We will tailor the box (RAID, Firmware and all) to your needs, provide after sales technical support and better warranty support than generic online shops. Bottom line, all it will cost you at this stage is an e-mail. If you want to know more about SPAN.com, learn about them here at https://www.span.com/about Last thing, if you are a gambler, 'like' our Facebook page where every month we give away more and more digital storage technology. just like the main page and cover all your bases!

Does QNAP connect to a logitech webcam for home surveillance, google hangouts and skype?

Reply from SPAN.COM | 23/11/2015

I would not recommend this device for mid to high range surveillance - though it can certainly handle Skype (which if I recall was pre-installed, but don't hold me to that). It is intended more as an entry level NAS that is more for media sharing and lower end demand. The Android end is what you would expect from a mid-range Android device. Thank you for your question.

What's the security like on that dual system, what exactly is accessible via android?

Reply from SPAN.COM | 19/10/2015

I have passed your question directly to QNAP and as soon as I have a concrete answer for you, I will get back to you. In the meantime by all means use the direct Live Chat facility provided to speak with a QNAP specialist aout the security on the TAS-168 and TAS-268. Thank you for your question
