  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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

Qnap Desktop NAS TS-453A-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.
  • RAID 5 combines efficient storage with excellent security and decent performance. It is ideal for file and application servers that have a limited number of data drives. Very fast read data transactions while write data transactions are bit slower. In case if drive fails, you still have access to all data, even while the failed drive is being replaced and system rebuilds the data on the new drive.
  • RAID 6 combines efficient storage with excellent security and decent performance. Similar to RAID 5, read data transactions are very fast. Two drives can fail and you still have access to all data, even while the failed drives are being replaced. It makes it more secure.
  • RAID 10 combines pros and cons of RAID 0 and RAID 1 in one single system. If one drive fails, the rebuild time is very fast because data being copied from the surviving mirror to a new drive.

I was after a Plex friendly NAS and this does it nicely.

We are a totally media overloaded family and the TS-453A is a little marvel for us with its 8G of RAM, Ultra 4K Transcoder, Plex happy, media reactive CPU. Great advice given from Span on this model as we approached them a little unsure. Thumbs up to Rich for his help in choosing.

Is there a difference between network drive, backup drive, network hard drive and nas drive?

There is no physical difference between a network drive, backup drive, network hard drive and NAS drive, the MAIN difference is about the use of the equipment. So:

A Network Drive is a area on storage that is useable to anyone on the network and will be visible to the device you are using if you have the correct login/password.

A Backup Drive is a storage device is a area of NAS or DAS storage that is used JUST for backups and only for writing, not reading - it backs up one or multiple devices on a regular basis.


A Network Hard Drive is the same as a network drive, but instead of a portion of online storage that is network/internet accessible, it is an entire disk drive. Much larger and often includes a RAID drive acting as a fall-back.

A NAS Drive can do all of the above. It can be set up to be a backup drive for all your devices, it can make either a portion or ALL of the storage available over the internet or network, it can do all of these at the same time and can give you much, much more access options thanks to NAS software from the likes of QNAP, Synology, WD, Asustor, Buffalo and Drobo.

What is a server at home?

A server at home is a network attached storage device (NAS) that is like a computer, but with the emphasis on storage space. They can be purchased for as little as £100 and mean all your data can be accessed, used and backed up to and from overt the internet or your home network (WiFi etc). Bigger and more expensive home servers can do more, such as virtual computers, surveillance recording and multimedia access.

What is meant by diskless NAS?

A Diskless NAS means that it a network storage device that is sold without any Hard Drives inside. Many NAS Brands like WD and Buffalo will only sell their NAS server devices with Drives already installed - this can often increase the price significantly, as well as limit the Hard Drives you want to install. A diskless NAS is a device that you can choose which drives, how many and the capacity you want and install them yourself, for a more bespoke NAS storage device. Installing the Hard Drives is very easy and you can often save a lot of time and improve your long term storage by choosing a diskless NAS and selecting the drives yourself.

What are the different types of RAID?

The most popular and recommended RAID levels for a 2-Bay NAS and 4-Bay NAS from Synology and QNAP are:

RAID 0 - Meaning all drive storage is pooled together into 1 big drive - MOST UNSAFE
RAID 1 - Drives are duplicated so you lose half the available storage, but have a complete, up to the second copy of your data
RAID 5 - You lose 1 drive of data storage space, but data is spread across all the available drives and a small piece of information called PARITY is created each wave/stripe that makes a blueprint of all the data
RAID 6 - Same as above, but it removes two drives worth of space and protects you against the loss of two Hard Drives

What is a RAID hard drive?

A RAID Hard drive is a Hard Disk Drive that is designed to be used in a RAID configuration - in simple terms it is a drive that can be installed with multiple other drives of the same type (such as WD Red RAID Drives, WD Purples Surveillance RAID Drives and Seagate Ironwolf NAS RAID Drives). These are designed to be on for long periods of time and for handling data that is shared and/or duplicated across multiple drives at once - constructed with better vibration, head and access controls). Most other drives are designed to work on their own.

What is raid on a NAS?

RAID on a NAS is a means to protect yourself from losing your data due to hard drive failure. Hard Drives are the 2nd most vulnerable area of a NAS device and if a drive fails and you do not have a copy of the data elsewhere, you will most likely lose it all. RAID gives you a safety net (called REDUNDANCY) which means you can afford to lose 1, 2 or even 3 hard drives with the right configuration. The most common options are:

RAID 0 - Meaning all drive storage is pooled together into 1 big drive - MOST UNSAFE
RAID 1 - Drives are duplicated so you lose half the available storage, but have a complete, up to the second copy of your data
RAID 5 - You lose 1 drive of data storage space, but data is spread across all the available drives and a small piece of information called PARITY is created each wave/stripe that makes a blueprint of all the data
RAID 6 - Same as above, but it removes two drives worth of space and protects you against the loss of two Hard Drives

What is a personal cloud storage device?

A personal Cloud storage device is a piece of Hardware, Like a NAS, that gives you the access, freedom, speed and utility of popular 3rd party cloud providers such as Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, Amazon S3 and more. However unlike those providers that hold your data on a server farm hundreds or thousands of miles away, where you it can be broken into, a Personal Cloud (NAS) lives in your home/office and can be protected with both bespoke AES-256bit encryption, individual login credentials and if the worst case scenario, can be simply unplugged from the network/internet.


It is also considerably cheaper in the long term.


 

16/11/2017 | Popular Question | GB Flag |
How do you connect to a NAS?

You can connect to a device in several ways:


- You can connect to a NAS via your home network as long as it is connected to the same router/switch that your other devices are connected to, via cable or over Wi-Fi (the devices, not the NAS)


- You can connect over the internet using the NAS manufacturer’s respective software on desktop or mobile platforms for Mac, Windows and Android devices


- You can also access the data as a network drive (where the location of the drive with be an IP - 192.168. etc.) and then the drive can be read and written to as needed


Thank you

How does a NAS device work?

Excellent Question. A NAS devices like a computer that is dedicated to storing data that is made accessible across all your internet enabled devices. It connects to your home network (in simple terms, the internet connected network in your home or office) and makes the data that is store on it accessible. You can also access the data from outside the phone via WiFi at hotspots and other buildings, or via your mobile 3G or 4G internet connection.

16/11/2017 | Popular Question | GB Flag |
Do you really need a NAS?

If you have data spread across multiple devices without a single backup location, then YES, you really do need a NAS drive. As it will make backing up with multiple devices easier, more automated and reliable.


If you are a business with large amounts of data that needs to be accessible quickly, across multiple machines or outside your office environment for off-site staff or clients, then YES you needs a NAS.


If you want your internet accessible data to be 100% inaccessible when needed (for security) and are considering a Cloud provider or a NAS, BUY A NAS!!! It is cheaper in the long run and can have individual and bespoke security measures.

Hi, im looking at purchasing a Qnap Desktop NAS TS-453A-8G, primarily for storing movies and running plex, i saw the youtube video by you guys and just wanted to confirm this server will comfortable run and transcode 4k movies?
You will be able to run 4k through the HDMI of the unit - when it comes to streaming and "transcoding" will you need to watch media outside your network? If you only plan to watch through the HDMI or using your internal network then transcoding is not needed.

If I buy a ts453a and ship it to Singapore, how is the warranty like?


Thank you for your enquiry Wesley,


Warranty is most certainly a crucial consideration. In most normal cases you should be able to communicate with a manufacturer in your own region on the subject of a hardware fault. We have reasoned with Manufacturers in the past to success to keep shipping costs for you, the customer, down to a low. We have always had a positive relationship with all of our Worldwide Manufacturers & Brands and cannot see why they would not be something we couldn't resolve with them. If however this cannot be achieved, it is traditional for the buyer to send the item back to us to complete our RMA procedure and that is our policy on purchases also. However we would make every effort to avoid this scenario and will work hard with you in every way we can in the unlikely event of hardware failure. The QNAP TS-453A cab be found here - https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Desktop-NAS-TS-453A-8G-4-Bay-RAID-0-1-5-6-8GB-RAM-~52842


If you purchase this unit with HDD installed, we will provide our build and test service at no additoinal cost. This means we will install the drives, update all firmware, configure your RAID and perform sector hecks on all drives (adds an extra day to the shipping) and means you receive a fully tested and ready-to-go unit straight out of the box!

We are aware of numerous users online upgrading this unit to 2x 8GB (16GB) however we cannot officially endorse this.

Hello, I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction for a QNAP. I think I have it down to two models and if price wan not a consideration which would you recommend for my application. I have movies that I currently stream via Plex from my desktop to a Roku, Amazon TV, Iphone and IPAD. I am looking for a device that can transcode without issue. The NAS will not be located in the same room as the TV. So is it worth it to go with the 453 to prevent having to buy a new NAS if I start getting 4K movies? I would a little confused by your comparison video suggesting the 451+ is better for Plex. I also share the the Desktop as a storage place for photos and home videos that are backed up locally and uploaded to Carbonite, I am looking to drop them due to the cost. So the QNAP to Amazon looks like a good solution to me. Lastly, I currently 2x 2TB WD Black drives, would this be an issue for running in a NAS if I pair them up with additional 2TB WB Black drives? If there is a better product that you might recommend I would appreciate it.


Thank you for your enquiry James,

The TS-451+ will transcode better if you intend to completely avoid 4K, but if you plan on introducing 4K Media into your collecting in the next 12-18 months, then I would definitely recommend the TS-453A as the better all round transcoding choice. Regarding HDD media, the WD Black drives would be excellent. We generally recommend WD Red series drives for NAS, but the WD Black series is in many ways even better (longer warranty, dedicated 7200rpm and increased cache), just be aware that WD Black drives will produce the tiniest amount more noise (due to them being a slightly more rugged design) and if you are within 1-2 metres of the device, will annoy the sensitive of hearing. Below is a link to the TS-453A for you. I would also recommend the 8GB model as the price cam down recently and you can get double the memory at much, MUCH cheaper than buying it later.

TS-453a or TS-453 PRO-8G?

I would consider the qnap 453a 8GB if I was you. 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 adn Transcoding (as well as 1080p) and 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 tougher as years go by (they will certainly replace, repair... it will us take longer). SPAN.COM will be one of the first stores worldwide to sell the QNAP TS-453A-4G and we ship worldwide. Why not take a look here https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Desktop-NAS-TS-453A-4G-4-Bay-RAID-0-1-5-6-4GB-RAM-~52841 The unit is currently in our Black Friday and Cyber Monday Promotional deal for £335 without the VAT - prices will go back up at 5PM GMT on Monday the 30th Nov

OK now I am really confused: initially I was checking the TS-453 mini. Then I saw this one.. and then the TS-251+ and the fanless 251+. My NAS will be intended mainly for home but for business use as well and I am interested mostly for a speedy solution capable of transfering/processing my data fast. What do you think comparing these models?

Actually, based on what you have said, I would give both of them a miss and consider the QNAP TS-453 PRO or QNAP TS-453A-4G (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.
