designCombination of metal and plastic, this QNAP NAS is designed to fit in both an office and home environment - very compact yet functional
featuresIn 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.
performanceThis 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
valueStill 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.

  CONS
designAs it is mostly metallic, it is a pinch noiser than a whole plastic version.
featuresThe CPU is not as powerful as the Pentium CPU in the latest WD PR4100 and others but this is so much lower in price
performanceOnce 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)
valueJust a shame that there isn't a Pentium or Intel i3 version available

The TS-453A also allows you to set a dedicated folder for automatic video transcoding.

QTS 4.2 – Simple, convenient and efficient
Thanks to the intuitive user interface of QTS, your NAS experience is smarter, smoother and spectacular. Its modern flat design streamlines loading times, and the intelligent desktop allows you to find desired functions quickly, create desktop shortcuts or group shortcuts, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater working efficiency. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms and geography to bring optimized cloud experiences to you, and incorporates more advanced features including volume/LUN snapshot, remote connection to public cloud services in File Station, multi-zone multimedia system, and more.

Disaster recovery solutions brings peace of mind

You can enjoy backup versioning to preserve a certain amount of versions, with options of simple versioning to schedule how many versions should be retained and for how long, or smart versioning with a rotation scheme that automatically replaces earlier backup versions. The TS-453A also supports the rsync protocol to back up data to another remote server on a scheduled basis. Data can also be backed up to and restored from a range of cloud storage services, including Amazon® S3, Amazon® Glacier, Microsoft® Azure, ElephantDrive®, Dropbox®, Google Drive™, Google Cloud Storage™, and more.

Restore files with Snapshot
QTS Storage Manager adds an easy-to-use web-based snapshot tool for you to easily backup and restore data on the TS-453A back to any point of time in case you lose any important data. You can take snapshots for both volumes and LUN (up to 256 snapshots per volume or LUN and maximum 1024 snapshots per NAS), efficiently replicate volume/LUN snapshots via Snapshot Replica to remote servers by copying only the changes made, and quickly clone a volume /LUN snapshot as a local volume without interrupting the current system operation. You can even set up the system to automatically take a snapshot of the volume before backup via RTRR/rsync, even when the file is opened.

Qsirch - a smarter, faster way to search
The TS-453A supports Qsirch, a proprietary near real-time search tool for quick file searching. In addition to thumbnail previews, Qsirch now allows you to find and preview Gmail emails that are backed up on the TS-453A. Qsirch even remembers your search history allowing you to quickly navigate to files you've previously searched for. Qsirch is a huge productivity boost that greatly reduces the time spent looking for files on the NAS, allowing you to focus on other tasks. The revamped Qsirch 2.1 adds a Google Chrome Extension that allows you to search for files on your NAS when you use Google Search.

  PROS
designCombination of metal and plastic, this QNAP NAS is designed to fit in both an office and home environment - very compact yet functional
featuresIn 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.
performanceThis 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
valueStill 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.

  CONS
designAs it is mostly metallic, it is a pinch noiser than a whole plastic version.
featuresThe CPU is not as powerful as the Pentium CPU in the latest WD PR4100 and others but this is so much lower in price
performanceOnce 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)
valueJust a shame that there isn't a Pentium or Intel i3 version available

I was after a NAS that could run KODI and low level CCTV and Rich at Span directed me towards this model and helped choose the drives that I needed for my cctv needs. It is working very well and QNAP CCTV apps are proving to be great on the cameras.

I wanted Kodi friendly 4K transcoder and this seemed to tick the box. It was easy to set up (although to be fair it arrived built and took away my need to research how to do it) and is running very smoothly. Have set up my parter with the same NAS for his birthday and he is happy with the result also.

Q is for Quality Qnaps Quickly Q-sent (yes I ran out of Qs). But very well done none the less.

QNAP do make remarkably good NAS stations. The TS-453A is one that is proving to cope with most things we are throwing at it without hitting any road bumps. I was directed to this company by the NAS Compares website (thank you Robbie) and service has been well worth shouting about. Thank you one and all.

A very good PLEX media server. There is now a TB3 version (which is really expensive) but this option is great.

This is our first home NAS and we are rather pleased with the outcome. We are a high use media family, music, films, photo development etc.... and with access to Plex and HDMI ports it covered all our requirements.

Using Skyhawk with this for home security. Been working solidly, been recommending it to friends so thought I would make an effort to write something on here too!

Excellent NAS for home and business too.

Hey I am in the proces of buying a NAS and found this comparison, lucky me that was between the 2 models I wanted. Question: Which is best for virtualization 251+/451+, 253a/453a or the new is it 253b/453b? Question: Will they all support at least 2 1080p stream with no problems? Thank in advance Flumse
Out of these three options the *53A and *53B have the better hardware for Virtulisation. Please contact our Sales team and they can talk you through your budget and your other needs

I'm looking at getting the TS-453A and struggling to find any information on how to share my music media over the internet to my phone on the way to and from work. Does music station perform this task well?

There are a few ways to share your music - one of the easier ways would be using "Plex" This would act as a Media server 
https://www.plex.tv/ 

You will most likely need to purchase the mobile app but for what you get it is well worth it.

so looking at both of these , you recommend me a qnap which i am looking at purchasing, however what i would like to do is ( i have no need for raid) DISK1 - MUSIC DISK 2 - TV DISK 3 - MOVIES DISK 4- GAMES Reading if disk 3 fails on qnap - all data would be lost on all drives, not just the failed drive is this the case with syntology my theory is that i already have backups of important information, also if if disk x doesnt have what i need it wont be spinning up and down all the time whilst raid 5 would make all drives spin most of the time secondly, I have read that plex stops the nas hiberating on qnap, is this the same with syn

 



Thank you for your enquiry


The QNAP to compare these against would be the QNAP T-453A (or the TS-253A 2-Bay too) here - https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Desktop-NAS-TS-453A-8G-4-Bay-RAID-0-1-5-6-8GB-RAM-~52842


If you do not want to utilize a RAID configuration, then yes you can create independent storage volumes on each Hard Drive, an if a drive fail, you will ONLY lose the DATA on that disk. However you should also be aware that during setup, the QNAP's operating system (and likewise on the Synology) lives on a small part of Disk 1 - So if that drive fails, then it will most likely corrupt the OS. That is anpther one of the reasons that a RAID would be recommendeda.


I have not found this to be the case with QNAP about hibernation being overwritten with Plex enabled - I think this will purely depend on the settings at startup and settings within Plex with regard to Metadata collecting. The NAS switching to hibernating after periods of inactivity by default will overwrite any App's permissions unless those apps are accessing the HDD at that moment. 


Once again I would recommend the QNAP mentioned above, Thank you for visiting SPAN.COM and NASCompares.


Kind regards,

I am considering the QNAP TS-253A for my first home NAS. I currently only need two bays but wounder if I should spend a bit more for the TS-453A to provide future expansion. I do not foresee a need to go beyond four drive bays. Can you provide any insight to push me in either direction? Thanks!


Thank you for your enquiry Todd



You wouldn't be the first to think about this. Lucky for you I made a video on this very subject a while ago. I hope it helps - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-rokCQV8bgA

I watched your videos and studied up a bit for my first nas. Must haves are: - house video clips and store for editing. - Store music and photos. - remote users are less than 10. - remote users would only be watching home video. - iTunes server and music storage - redundant hard drive safety - I might tinker with home survalence later I was thinking a 4 drive unit because it"s nearly cheaper to do 4 3t drives in raid 5 for 9t total. Vs a 2 drive nas with 4t drives and still have one less terabyte. I"d expect video files to take most of the space. Synology or qnap? Model that will serve me well? I have no idea what functionality I should also consider.


 



Thank you for your enquiry Randall,

Based on all the requirements provided, I have no hesitation in recommending the QNAP TS-453A. Remember that if your budget is tight, you do not need to fully populate the device (i.e you can start with 2 HDD now and add 2 more later and expand the RAID). How it meets your needs below:


- house video clips and store for editing - This NAS will store and Play everything from 360p to 4K over the network or HDMI.
- Store music and photos. - Same as above, as well as distributing to DLNA devices.
- remote users are less than 10. - The Quad Core CPU and 4/8GB Memory can handle this.
- remote users would only be watching home video. - More than possible.
- iTunes server and music storage - Fully compatible and with multiple official free apps included in the app store.
- redundant hard drive safety - Can be configured to JBOD, RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 6 and RAID 10.
- I might tinker with home surveillance later - Arrives with Free full Surveillance software 'Surveillance Station' and 4 IP Cameras.

If I buy a ts453a nas and ship it to singapore, how is the warranty like?
Warranty replacements for hardware failure would be through us in the UK.

Qnap have great support for software issues, so that is normally not necessary.

The service of SPAN.com is great, the sales representative offered me an extra QNAP Genie, the delivery is fast, it only takes three days from UK to HK. The postage is protected in excellent, my worries on the long distance delivery is a surplus. It functions normally, I will purchase in SPAN.com in my future!

Question that I have regarding QNAP's TS-453A vs TS-253A and which makes more sense for me to buy... (I am a home user). Am I thinking correctly in seeing QNAP TS-453A as being cheaper and more flexible under the scenario below? or am I missing something? I want at least 6 TB storage.. 2 bay would cost approx. $ 500 for TS-253A-4G $ 480 for 2 6TB WD red drives @ $240 each ======================================== $ 980 and will yield 6 TB drive space in RAID 1 (mirrored) 4 bay argument is that it costs: $ 600 for TS-453A-4G $ 330 for 3 3TB WD red drives @ $110 each (I will add 4th later when I can afford) ======================================== $ 930 and will yield 9 TB drive space in RAID 5 Do you think this logic would prefer the 4-Bay 453A as being cheaper and more usable storage space (in above scenario) than the 2-bay 253A? Thank you for your very informative NAS vids. This is an area that needs some information and education.
Hard to say, without a better understanding of currently prices. Personally I would go for the 4 bay option, but that may not means it works out the most cost effective in the long run. Can you e-mail me on robbie@span.com with your requirements and I can find out more about pricing structures etc. We are based in the UK but ship worldwide at very competitive rates.

Hi! Thank you for your great Video. At the moment I am using a Synology DS214play. Sometimes the NAS has not enough power for my Video Transcoding. So I plan to upgrade. I watched all your Videos of comparing the Synology to the QNAP. From 216play to 716+ and 253A 253 pro and now the 453A. So I already understood that the qnap would be better for me than the Synology because of the better Transcoding. Now I dont know if I should go for the 253A or the 453A. ATM I have two Seagate NAS 4TB HDD in use. But the 4TB are nearly full. So I plan to upgrade on minimum 6TB or maybe 8TB. The 8TB is extremly expensive and the 6TB aswell. So maybe it would be better to go for the 453A and get 4x 3TB or 4x 4TB. This might me cheaper due to some special offers. Are there any problems if I maybe buy 2x4TB WD HDD and put them in the 453A together with my 2x4TB Seagage HDD? I heard that the HDDs should all be the same in one NAS System. So you see, a lot of questions from my side. Hope you can help me a little bit! Thanks a lot! And go on with your awesome Video Reviews!!

I would recommend spreading the capacity across a 4 bay and use a RAID 5. My reasoning would be the following: 1. A two bay unit will only give you a RAID 1 at most - and you'll want redundancy to protect your data in case of harware failure. so if you filled a 2 bay with 2x 8TB, you would only have a maximum 8TB of capacity. If you filled a 4 BAY unit with 3TB drives, the price would possible be the same or cheaper! Put those 4 drives in a RAID 5 set up and you would have a maximum 9TB capacity and lots of redundancy. 2. The 4 bay device includes 2 more gigabit LAN ports... so run 4 Ethernet cables in a good router or switch and you will have truly amazing transfer speeds! 3. If you budget is running thin... you can get the 4 bay, the QNAP TS-453A-4G but only pop 2 rives inside...then upgrade at a later date. You can upgrade from a RAID 1 to a RAID 5 and not lose your data! So, if you want to get yourself a QNAP TS-453A-4G NAS, visit the link below or email me on robbie@span.com and I can et an orer knocked together for you. https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Desktop-NAS-TS-453A-4G-4-Bay-RAID-0-1-5-6-4GB-RAM-~52841

I've read that the 453A stutters with high bitrate 1080p transcoding with only one stream. What gives? It's giving me pause before purchasing. Is that due to only having 2.0 GHz processor? Should one go up to TVS version, and is that better having i processors? fwiw...I'm interested in the purchasing the best plex media server device that's under 8-900$.
I was no aware of that, but would greatly appreciate it if you could fire me over a link on it and I can help spread the word if needed - if you can, send it to robbie@span.com. Regarding a plex NAS for that budget, does that include storage? In your e-mail add your PLEX NAS requirements and I will look into some options for you.

Thanks Rob, Great walkthrough and good customer service so far with SPAN.com. I feel like my setup will be easier than I recently thought of.

Thanks for the great feedback. Just spoke with our logistics team and your unit is going to leave within the hour!

Alright say I go and buy the bigger version right off the Ts-453A. (I was going to get the 2 bay version.) That would leave me enough in my budget to buy 1 6tb hard drive. I will upgrade later but I want to fill it with 6tb drives. My question is Will I lose my data later if I go from 1 drive to another finally enabling Raid? Also SSd cache worth it in this? Ive got a 1tb ssd I can use. Reply ·

As long as you RAID Upwards, the n you will be fine... if you RAID to a lower level, then you inherently lose your data. So, the order is: RAID 0 RAID 1 RAID 5 RAID 6 This is based on the idea of you adding drives as you go.

Firstly, Thanks for the in-put, really enjoy your Vids, all very well explained. I wanted to ask is there a limit to how many employees can log in to use the server from afar (at the same time)?

If you go directly to QNAP, then go into the product pages, go to specs, then finally software specs. It will give you a detailed account of how this device (more precisely the hardware setup and chip capabilities) performs and Mac users in different software.

What Qnap nas do you recommend for full PMS suppport and owncloud ability?
To ensure FULL support, I would recommend the QNAP TS-453 PRO or the QNAP TS-453A (these are both 4 bay models, but both are available in 2,4,6 and 8 bay iterations - just replace the #4 with another number of the model numbers). If you want to work upto 1080p, then you should proceed with the PRO model. However if you intend to equip 4K Media and 4K Media Transcoding into your media arsenal, then go for the TS-453A from QNAP. I would consider the TS-453A if I was your postition. Among the fact that the TS-453A can do everything the PRO can do, the QNAP TS-453A has Dual OS, Dual HDMI, 4k Support and Transcoding (as well as 1080p) and has the same standards of Virtualisation and Multi-user support of the TS-453 PRO. The CPU Frequency is higher, yes. However the TS-453A CPU is more efficient in terms of power consumption, AES-NI Encryption of your data - 2 of the biggest drains on a NAS Processor. Last of all, we have recently found out that the QNAP TS-453 PRO is going to go 'end of life' at the close of the year...which would make any future warranty repairs/replacements tougher as years go by (they will certainly replace, repair... it will us take longer than it would for the TS-453A). Both units are available from SPAN.COM and are also covered by our Cyber Monday promotion till 5pm today (GMT)...so about 8+ hours left. Offer only extends to orders placed online. The QNAP TS-453A - https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Desktop-NAS-TS-453A-4G-4-Bay-RAID-0-1-5-6-4GB-RAM-~52841 The QNAP TS-453 PRO - https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Desktop-NAS-TS-453-Pro-4-Bay-RAID-0-1-5-6-2GB-RAM-~46034 We will be one of the first stores worldwide to stock the TS-453A from QNAP and our first shipment of units arrive this friday )and there is already pre-orders in place - to ensure you get your unit in the first wave, I would recommend ordering as soon as possible. Thank you for your enquiry.

Does the dual OS support on this mean you can use QTS NAS and Ubuntu at the same time? Also, I asked o nthe 2-bay but is it also the same on this 4 bay, Does it support 4K Transcoding and 4K HDMI? Thanks.
I am pleased to confirm that this is a dual OS NAS. You can use the QNAP QTS software as well as Ubuntu in all it's glory. Both modes can be used symultaneously and via 2 HDMI ports on the rear of the device. One of the 4K ports also supports 4K Media playback as well as the unit supporting 4K Transcoding. We recommend this NAS as the best NAS for those that require flexible and adaptable NAS solutions.
