TS-228A

Lightweight and powerful entry-level NAS for private cloud and home entertainment

Equipped with a Realtek RTD1295 quad-core processor, the TS-228A provides home users with powerful features including snapshot-based backup, file synchronization, and private cloud services. The TS-228A is also a one-stop home entertainment portal for streaming photos, music, and videos to multiple devices throughout your home and beyond. With energy-saving and quiet operation, the TS-228A is especially suited for home users and provides easy-to-use and convenient functionality for file storage and multimedia needs.
Qsync is an easy-to-use real-time file sync service for computers and mobile devices. With Qsync, your data can be shared across multiple locations, making file sharing even easier. The TS-228A provides you with snapshot protection at an affordable price, allowing you to protect files and data from accidental deletion and malware attacks. Hybrid Backup Sync gives you the freedom to set and combine multiple auto backup/sync functions to keep important data safe and to ensure peace of mind. The three multimedia "stations" (Photo, Music, and Video) help you to effortlessly centralize, manage, organize, and browse your family's multimedia files. Your multimedia collection can be streamed directly from the TS-228A to supported smart TVs, music players, and game consoles. Download Station combines many popular downloading services and functions. With the power-efficient and quiet TS-228A, you can run downloading tasks for a long period of time without running up a large electricity bill. Realtek RTD1295 quad-core 1.4GHz processor, 1 GB RAM

Sleek and powerful
The TS-228A features a Realtek RTD1295 quad-core 1.4GHz processor, 1 GB RAM, and a 1GbE network port to provide performance of up to 112 MB/s. If you decide to encrypt your files with AES-256 encryption, the performance is still an impressive 112 MB/s - allowing you to ensure your privacy without sacrificing performance.

Lightweight and easy installation
The minimal and streamlined design of TS-228A makes it fit easily into your home. Featuring a unique, tool-less design, setting up the TS-228A is so easy that it doesn't even need a screwdriver!

A single NAS for cross-platform, multi-device file access and sharing
The TS-228A acts as a file exchange platform to simplify your file management across devices, and is compatible with a wide range of computers and devices (including Windows, macOS and more). For mobile devices, the Qsync suite can be installed for synchronizing and sharing files across PC, phones and tablets.

Backing up data is as easy as 1-2-3
By practicing safe computer habits and with the TS-228A handling your file backup tasks, you can rest easy knowing that your data is safe. QNAP's NetBak Replicator backup utility can assist in backing up/restoring files on a Windows® PC while macOS users can set up Time Machine to save to the TS-228A.

High-end snapshot protection for files and data
QNAP has extended support for file snapshot protection to our entry-level NAS. Snapshots were originally only possible on high-end business systems, and they allow you to record the system state and data content at a single point of time. With snapshot protection, if you accidentally delete/modify files, or if any hard disks should fail or your network is infected with malware, you can quickly restore files to a previous point in time.

Back up your files with the versatile Hybrid Backup Sync
With the TS-228A, complicated backup settings are history. You can now use Hybrid Backup Sync as your single portal for backing up, restoring, and syncing files. Supporting local NAS, remote NAS and cloud storage as both origins and destinations, you can combine multiple backup tasks to provide optimal protection for your data. Other features include scheduling, versioning, data compression and multiple-layer encryption, so your files are kept safe and sound.

360-degree panorama photo/video
Good news for adventurers! QNAP NAS now supports the popular 360-degree panorama recording format! By clicking the 360-degree panorama display button, your photos and videos will be displayed as 360-degree panorama media files.

All your downloading needs covered
With the energy-efficient and quiet TS-228A, you no longer need to use different downloading utilities or to keep your computer running all the time. Use Download Station to search for downloads and to manage your download tasks.

Enjoy an amazing multimedia experience

Take photos anytime, anywhere and manage them with Photo Station. Organize photos by folders or albums, and view them in several modes.
With powerful smart playlists, comprehensive search functions and a user-friendly interface, Music Station is more than just music to your ears.

Video Station's smart collection, advanced search, and easy sharing functions makes it so easy for you to enjoy your videos. Spoiler alert: you can even import video information from multiple online databases!
Everything you need for the perfect multimedia experience
The all-new QVHelper can help you stream and decode multimedia files to media players on your computer and/or mobile devices. The Qfinder Pro utility can also save time and NAS system resources by transcoding media files locally on your PC before uploading them to the NAS. With the TS-228A your audiovisual experience is smoother and more convenient with useful apps and everything you need to enjoy great multimedia entertainment.

All these NAS functions on the go
The TS-228A has a multitude of companion mobile apps to extend its functionality to your smartphones and tablets. If you're on the go for business or pleasure, your files and data are only a few taps away.

Qfile lets you access the files saved on your TS-228A at anytime, from anywhere so you can ditch your thumb drives forever.
Qsync quickly and effortlessly syncs files across different platforms and multiple devices so you'll never miss any important information again.
Use Qget to remotely control your TS-228A to download files on the go. Files will be automatically downloaded to your TS-228A.
Use Qphoto to view and share photos stored on the TS-228A. You can also instantly upload photos/videos to the TS-228A as they're taken, so you don't have to worry about storage space issues or if your phone is lost.

Power efficient and quiet
The TS-228A requires only 12.21 W, providing powerful features without a high power bill. Other smart energy-saving modes help to minimize electricity usage, and with a quiet cooling fan both the noise and heat generated by the TS-228A is kept to a minimum.

Qnap Desktop NAS TS 228A reviews


17/03/2018 | | EU Flag |
I was a little concerned that this cheap model would be a bit rubbish (comparing to other available) but I needed it only for regular data files and documents and to be able to pick up remotely and it works. It does drag a little in places but to be fair I think that could be the state of my internet connection.

Is there a difference between network drive, backup drive, network hard drive and nas drive?

There is no physical difference between a network drive, backup drive, network hard drive and NAS drive, the MAIN difference is about the use of the equipment. So:

A Network Drive is a area on storage that is useable to anyone on the network and will be visible to the device you are using if you have the correct login/password.

A Backup Drive is a storage device is a area of NAS or DAS storage that is used JUST for backups and only for writing, not reading - it backs up one or multiple devices on a regular basis.


A Network Hard Drive is the same as a network drive, but instead of a portion of online storage that is network/internet accessible, it is an entire disk drive. Much larger and often includes a RAID drive acting as a fall-back.

A NAS Drive can do all of the above. It can be set up to be a backup drive for all your devices, it can make either a portion or ALL of the storage available over the internet or network, it can do all of these at the same time and can give you much, much more access options thanks to NAS software from the likes of QNAP, Synology, WD, Asustor, Buffalo and Drobo.

What is a server at home?

They can be purchased for as little as £100 and mean all your data can be accessed, used and backed up to and from overt the internet or your home network (WiFi etc). Bigger and more expensive home servers can do more, such as virtual computers, surveillance recording and multimedia access.

What is meant by diskless NAS?

A Diskless NAS means that it a network storage device that is sold without any Hard Drives inside. Many NAS Brands like WD and Buffalo will only sell their NAS server devices with Drives already installed - this can often increase the price significantly, as well as limit the Hard Drives you want to install. A diskless NAS is a device that you can choose which drives, how many and the capacity you want and install them yourself, for a more bespoke NAS storage device. Installing the Hard Drives is very easy and you can often save a lot of time and improve your long term storage by choosing a diskless NAS and selecting the drives yourself.

What is a NAS external hard drive?

A NAS external Hard Drive is an external storage device that, unlike USB 3.0 and eSATA external Hard Drives, is accessed used the internet or your home network. So that means you can access the contents (DATA) of the NAS on your iPhone, iPad, Smart TV, PS4, XBOX One, Sonos Sound System, Bose system, Laptop, Smartphone and pretty much any DLNA enabled device without having to connect to it with a cable. Meaning you do not need to carry duplicates of all your data on all your devices, but can have one central NAS storage devices that all the other devices can access.

How do I connect to my NAS remotely?

You can connect to your NAS server remotely with the mobile applications that are free with your NAS Brand manufacturer for iOS and Android.

Lastly you can create a network and internet accessible drive with iSCSI and then setup software (Virtual Machine, backup, Surveillance and more) on your Mac or Windows machine to read and write to the NAS remotely.

What are the different types of RAID?

The most popular and recommended RAID levels for a 2-Bay NAS and 4-Bay NAS from Synology and QNAP are:

RAID 0 - Meaning all drive storage is pooled together into 1 big drive - MOST UNSAFE
RAID 1 - Drives are duplicated so you lose half the available storage, but have a complete, up to the second copy of your data
RAID 5 - You lose 1 drive of data storage space, but data is spread across all the available drives and a small piece of information called PARITY is created each wave/stripe that makes a blueprint of all the data
RAID 6 - Same as above, but it removes two drives worth of space and protects you against the loss of two Hard Drives

What is a RAID hard drive?

A RAID Hard drive is a Hard Disk Drive that is designed to be used in a RAID configuration - in simple terms it is a drive that can be installed with multiple other drives of the same type (such as WD Red RAID Drives, WD Purples Surveillance RAID Drives and Seagate Ironwolf NAS RAID Drives). These are designed to be on for long periods of time and for handling data that is shared and/or duplicated across multiple drives at once - constructed with better vibration, head and access controls). Most other drives are designed to work on their own.

What is raid on a NAS?

RAID on a NAS is a means to protect yourself from losing your data due to hard drive failure. Hard Drives are the 2nd most vulnerable area of a NAS device and if a drive fails and you do not have a copy of the data elsewhere, you will most likely lose it all. RAID gives you a safety net (called REDUNDANCY) which means you can afford to lose 1, 2 or even 3 hard drives with the right configuration. The most common options are:

RAID 0 - Meaning all drive storage is pooled together into 1 big drive - MOST UNSAFE
RAID 1 - Drives are duplicated so you lose half the available storage, but have a complete, up to the second copy of your data
RAID 5 - You lose 1 drive of data storage space, but data is spread across all the available drives and a small piece of information called PARITY is created each wave/stripe that makes a blueprint of all the data
RAID 6 - Same as above, but it removes two drives worth of space and protects you against the loss of two Hard Drives

What is a personal cloud storage device?

A personal Cloud storage device is a piece of Hardware, Like a NAS, that gives you the access, freedom, speed and utility of popular 3rd party cloud providers such as Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, Amazon S3 and more. However unlike those providers that hold your data on a server farm hundreds or thousands of miles away, where you it can be broken into, a Personal Cloud (NAS) lives in your home/office and can be protected with both bespoke AES-256bit encryption, individual login credentials and if the worst case scenario, can be simply unplugged from the network/internet.


It is also considerably cheaper in the long term.

How do you connect to a NAS?

You can connect to a device in several ways:


- You can connect to a NAS via your home network as long as it is connected to the same router/switch that your other devices are connected to, via cable or over Wi-Fi (the devices, not the NAS)


- You can connect over the internet using the NAS manufacturer’s respective software on desktop or mobile platforms for Mac, Windows and Android devices


- You can also access the data as a network drive (where the location of the drive with be an IP - 192.168. etc.) and then the drive can be read and written to as needed


Thank you

How does a NAS device work?

Excellent Question. A NAS devices like a computer that is dedicated to storing data that is made accessible across all your internet enabled devices. It connects to your home network (in simple terms, the internet connected network in your home or office) and makes the data that is store on it accessible. You can also access the data from outside the phone via WiFi at hotspots and other buildings, or via your mobile 3G or 4G internet connection.

Do you really need a NAS?

If you have data spread across multiple devices without a single backup location, then YES, you really do need a NAS drive. As it will make backing up with multiple devices easier, more automated and reliable.


If you are a business with large amounts of data that needs to be accessible quickly, across multiple machines or outside your office environment for off-site staff or clients, then YES you needs a NAS.


If you want your internet accessible data to be 100% inaccessible when needed (for security) and are considering a Cloud provider or a NAS, BUY A NAS!!! It is cheaper in the long run and can have individual and bespoke security measures.
