VALUE FOR MONEY
|design||Very unique chassis design from QNAP in the newly release TS-253Be NAS for 2018. 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, PCIe slot for upgrages to 10Gbe + SSD Cache and 1 Touch copy button mean this small little NAS has an incredible number of features.|
|features||Easily 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, one touch USB 3.0 Copy, Hot Swapping, new and improved remote control (optional) and more. This is fast becoming the home and SMB NAS to beat in 2018 from QNAP!|
|performance||Supporting 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!|
|value||For 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-253Be.|
|design||Shame it is almost 80% plastic externally. Yes that reduces noise and makes it quite, but some may be put off by this.|
|features||Those 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!|
|performance||We just wish QNAP released the Thunderbolt 3 Card to buy functionality. A two Bay Thunderbolt 3 NAS would be incredible! Such a shame...but you never know!|
|value||Misses the mark just a little without arriving with TB3 connectivity and some users may be put off by the plastic chassis.|
