back of Qnap Desktop NAS

  • LAN Network Port / Ethernet Port – Giving your Qnap storage device to both send, receive and manipulate files over the internet. However that is just the tip of the iceberg. Via the connection of devices such as IP camera, mobile apps and other system tools, you can use multi-purpose applications for homes, small business and enterprises uses.
  • USB 3.0 – The newer and faster evolution of Universal Serial Bus, USB 3.0, can transfer data at up to 5Gb per second. Now becoming commonplace, you can transfer data between devices such as external hard-drives and flash storage keys. In more advanced, larger devices you are able to connect peripherals such as mice and keyboards to the enclosure, however we highly recommend contacting the manufacturers website here for more details on connectivity and compatibility
  • USB 2.0 - A common connection in most devices, USB or Universal Serial Bus gives your Qnap the ability to data between devices such as external hard drives and flash storage keys at up to 480Mb per second. In some larger, more advanced enclosures, you are able to connect peripherals such as keyboards and mice to a Storage enclosure, however we recommend contacting the manufacturers website here for more details on compatibility.
  • HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) – Access your Qnap NAS via a visual device, such as a HD TV or Monitor to giving you direct access to your Network Attached Storage device. Useful if your Network Connectivity has dropped and you require access to your files in the absence of a network/Internet connection.

Qnap Desktop NAS TS-251+-8G RAID options

  • JBOD- is a cost-effective network storage solution. If you have a lot of temporarily data to store, JBODs are an economical solution. Mind that the data is not critical or you have an effective backup scheme in place. JBOD is either a single or number of disks which are grouped together and presented to the Operating System as a single volume, called 'Spanning'. If you lose a single disk in the JBOD then you possibly will lose data, as the concept of a JBOD does not include not fault tolerance.
  • RAID 0 is ideal for non-critical storage of data that have to be read/written at a high speed, such as on a video editing station or an image retouching. RAID 0 offers great performance, both in read and write operations. All storage capacity is used, there is no overhead.
  • RAID 1 (mirrored drive) is ideal for critical storage, like accounting systems. It is also suitable for small servers in which only two data drives will be used (disc mirroring). It offers excellent read speed and a write-speed that is comparable to that of a single drive. In case a drive fails, data do not have to be rebuild, they just have to be copied to the replacement drive (mirroring hdd ). It can be used as back up mirror.

Qnap Desktop NAS TS 251+ 8G reviews


16/02/2017 | | GB Flag |
Hello, I need to upgrade my current home NAS (Synology DS210j) as it is not powerful for my current needs. I primarily use the NAS for streaming movies and storing photos. I was looking at a QNAP 253A, 251A, or 251+. I am not a power user and the NAS is for a household with two adults and one child so it does not many devices will be accessing it at once. What would you recommend? Regards,

 



Thank you for your enquiry IP


Of those three and based on your requirements, I would recommend the TS-251+.With excellent performance and stability, upgrade options for years down the line when needed, HDMI and remote control included so you can also access media directly (so no streaming or the lag that can come if someone is eating up all the bandwidth!) .


This NAS will handle everything from Plex, to Kodi (though you will need to install it manually), to Surveillance, virtual machines, file servers, Mac-to-windows migration, 3rd party cloud access and more! You can find it here - https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Desktop-NAS-TS-251+-2G-2-Bay-RAID-0-1-2GB-RAM-~51037


P.s. I also see it is the lowest price! BARGAIN!


Thank you for visiting SPAN.COM.

as much as i agree with your conclusion about the 251 being the better in terms of hardware, qnap ios apps are absolutely shocking and show little signs of improving and ive owned a number of each brands on test. What the Synology losses in performance it in my opinion more than makes up in day to day use.
The only comparible Synology to this unit is the Synology DS216+II, which is available here - https://www.span.com/product/Synology-2-Bay-DiskStation-NAS-DS216+II-SATA-HD-RAID-0-1~58625

Thank you for sharing your feedback on this.

Yet again what a great review, before I started to watch this and the other reviews I wanted to buy the Synology DS716+, now I'm convinced I should go for the Qnap TS-253A-G4. Mainly for the HDMI option and the remote. Thanks again for the reviews.

Dont hesitate to email me on robbie@span.com if I can help any further.

I am in need of a NAS and thought the qnap ts-251 was the one for me, but then saw that the 251+. I watch alot of movies in all kind of different kinds of formats and transcoding should be quick. which would you recommend?
Of the two, you will see an improved [performance on the TS-251+. However I appreciate that some people go for the non + version as a budget concern. In that case I would recommend the middle ground unit, the QNAP TS-251C - https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Desktop-NAS-TS-251C-2-Bay-RAID-0-1-1GB-RAM-fixed-~47850

Great video!! I'm thinking of getting a Qnap TS-251+ and wondering if 2gb ram is enough to play on plex apple tv 4 or should i go for the 8gb?
If you are going to chiefly be using 4K NAS, I would recommend the upgrade to the 8GB DDR3 Memory model. Those files are going to be quite substantial and you will thank your lucky stars early on to have their excess memory in place. Doubley so if you intend to access files in real-time whilst you and someone else is accessing the sytem at the same time.

Can I use this for a Plex Media Server? More importantly can it transcode 1080p as a Plex NAS server? If not which unit would you recommend?

Yes Carol, you can most certainly use this as a Plex Nas Server. The CPU in this device is an x86 processor and we recommend an intel x86 CPU for a Plex Media Server of any kind. This Plex NAS will transcode all the way upto 1080p and you will be able to utilise the HDMI port to directly access the contents of the NAS on your HDMI TV, without relying on your Network.


If you are interested in 4K transcoding for Plex 4K Transcoding and for general 4K Media, we recommend these compatible devices - The Synology DS716+ here https://www.span.com/product/Synology-2-Bay-DiskStation-NAS-DS716-SATA-HD-RAID-0-1~51145

and the QNAP TS-253A https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Desktop-NAS-TS-253A-4G-2-Bay-RAID-0-1-4GB-RAM-~52839

Thank you for your questions about Plex and NAS servers.
