designVery unique chassis design from QNAP in the newly release TS-253B NAS for 2017. It is both compact and remarkably packed with features. The removable front panel acts as both protection for the HDD trays and a preventative measure for dust. Also the addition of an LCD panel, SD Card Reader, Direct Attached Connection and 1 Touch copy button mean this small little NAS has an incredible number of features.
featureseasily one of the most fully featured NAS servers in this price range available to date! With many of the key hardware and software applications of the QNAP TVS-473, TS-451A, TS-453A and more - but all available in this single NAS. Dual HDMI, DUAL LAN, PCIe Slot, SD Card reader, Quick Connect DAS, one touch USB 3.0 Copy, Hot Swapping, new and improved remote control and more. This is fast becoming the home and SMB NAS to beat in 2017!
performanceSupporting everything from Plex, Kodi over HDMI in Linux Station, VMs, standalone surveillance, all RAID levels, DLNA support, apple time machine, Mac and Windows full RTRRR, QVR Pro Beta and more - you will struggle to find something this NAS cannot do!
valueFor the pure funtionality and ability, you will struggle to do better than this NAS. It is designed to be the answer to your NAS needs and delivers in almost everyway. It brings years of technical evolution and innovation to a climax and produces a fantastic little NAS solution in the TS-253B.

  CONS
designShame it is almost 80% plastic externally. Yes that reduces noise and makes it quite, but some may be put off by this.
featuresThose looking for something for enterprise use will perhaps be better looking for something in the TVS-1282 Series in an i5 or i7. This NAS is about being able to do many, many things very well, rather than 1 or 2 things incredibly!
performanceWe just wish QNAP released the Thunderbolt 3 Card to buy seperately. A two Bay Thunderbolt 3 NAS would be incredible! Such a shame...but you never know!
valueMisses the mark just a little without arriving with TB3 connectivity and some users may be put off by the plastic chassis.

10/02/2018 | | EU Flag |
Purchased the TS253B during the Black Friday sale (excellent prices, thanks Worldspan!) and bought a top up of extra RAM. Probably should have looked at an 8GB to start with (my fault!) but this is now my perfect machine.

Dear sir, I have watched most of your videos and I have to say its been very thorough and helpfull. I'm planning to buy from span.com as the prices are very good and competitive. As this will be my first nas and have no previous experience at all I was a bit confused. After watching almost all of your videos I think I finally narrowed down my options. I will be using mostly for file storing, sharing, and plex streaming. Although at a bit higher price range im looking between qnap ts253 b and synology ds718+ as these are latest 2 bay models.mostly I would like to know how easy it will be between the two to upload photos and videos from mobile devices and gopro camera 4k and then stream/view on tv from plex. It woul also be nice to see a video comparison between the two devices :-) ! Thanks in advance Spyros Antoniou
Hi Spyros,

Both the DS718 and TS253b are great units for what you want. I would say the Qnap would be a beter option as it has more connection, would you have the need to attach a screen directly?

Hi, I am looking at purchasing a Qnap TS-253B-4G Desktop NAS 6TB 2-Bay, RAID 0/1 (4GB RAM) (2 X 3TB WD Red). I just wanted to know when it will be in stock. Also, are the WD drive included SSD drives? Thanks, Alberto
We are expecting the 253B models to become available in the next month or so.

WD Red drives are NAS hard drives.
