VALUE FOR MONEY
|design||Combination of metal and plastic, this QNAP NAS is designed to fit in both an office and home environment - very compact yet functional|
|features||In terms of Price vs Ability, you will struggle to find a better NAS - the QNAP TS-x53a Series is easily the best QNAP NAS of the year for us at SPAN.COM.|
|performance||This NAS is designed with multitasking and can handly VMWare, Plex, KODI, Emby, Surveillance over IP Cameras and more, as well as arriving with DUAL OS Linux Setup as you wish and a remote control and dual HDMI IN 1080p and 4K transcoding. Hard to argue with that kind of ability|
|value||Still one of the best NAS servers out there - Cost wise it is VERY well placed and will continue to be one of the best NAS devices we at SPAN.COM will recommend you to buy throughout 2017.|
|design||As it is mostly metallic, it is a pinch noiser than a whole plastic version.|
|features||The CPU is not as powerful as the Pentium CPU in the latest WD PR4100 and others but this is so much lower in price|
|performance||Once again, there are bigger and better CPUs out there and this NAS is not quite suitable if you want PLEX 1080p transcoding on EVERYTHING (though it can handle 1080p HD it may struggle with high bitrate or dense media unlike an i7 CPU)|
|value||Just a shame that there isn't a Pentium or Intel i3 version available|
