designThis great NAS for 2017 is easily a stand out model in terms of ability and hardware inside. But one factor that is often a controversial one is the chassis. For many the fact the TS-453B casing is mostly plastic is a put off. However it still maintains an excellent temperature, low noise and with the removable front panel (much like the Synology DS216+II) it is a closed system. Until you need access to the tooless HDD trays and hot swapping occasionally. In this way the TS-453B is as versatile and able as any other NAS
featuresWhen I first saw the specs and connections of this NAS I was genuinely impressed by it's covering of numerous NAS applications and tasks. Only the TS-453A has ever left me equally impressed in terms of Cost vs Value of hardware. I cannot recommend it enough. With features like 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!
performanceUsing the new Intel Celeron J series CPU and 4/8GB of RAM means that it will handle most of the popular NAS tasks required of it. Functions, services and applications like 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 are all possible with the TS-453B and can be set up quickly and easily.
valueArriving with the ability to do almost any currently generation NAS task, the TS-453B is certainly in our top 5 4-Bay NAS servers of 2017. If you need a NAS to do that tasks you need and want to ensure you get the most for your money, look no further than this plucky little 4-Bay NAS from QNAP.

  CONS
designDespite the NAS doing everything you need, some will prefer the metal chassis and tray design of the QNAP TS-453A.
featuresOnly 2x LAN on this 4-Bay NAS, but you can add more with the PCIe. Aside from that and the lack of a Thunderbolt 3 connectivity option for MacBook Pro users are the only faults I can find.
performanceMany more advanced PC users will want to consider devices featuring i5 and i7 Intel CPU NAS servers as they have 1 or 2 very high end tasks in mind. Though the TS-453B is a fantastic device, it is designed to do many, many things well. If you have 1 or 2 things that need to be done to an enterprise standard, maybe look at the TVS-473.
valueAgain, those with 4K File editing on the fly, Thunderbolt connectivity and enterprise level use in mind, maybe spend the extra £500-2000 and buy a TVS-1282 from QNAP NAS.

Qnap Desktop NAS TS-453B-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.

Qnap Desktop NAS TS 453B 8G reviews


15/09/2017 | Max | AU Flag |
Hello Team Span, I'm new to NAS... Would I be able to edit the video in real-time by directly attaching the use cable on the front panel..? Or is that port only for accessing & transferring the files... I'm a Mac user & use Adobe suite & Davinci Resolve. Thanks in advance!
Hi Max,


You can look at the 73 or 82 series Qnap's - but using them to work directly on video is not advisable - Yes, these unit allow you to access them directly through USB or Thunderbolt but this does not mean you will have the access speeds to keep up with real-time video editing. A NAS allows for ease of access to your DATA and allows you to manage it in one place. If you want speed the stay with a TB2/3 DAS and then back it up to the NAS.

Hello: I live in Canada and I am considering acquiring a Qnap ts 453 b nas and I have a few questions I hope you can answer: May I populate the nas with 8 or 10 tb hard drives? What cable should I order (model number and it’s cost) to connect my pc via the USB - 3.0 to the Nas front quick USB – C? What UPS would you recommend I purchase that best suits this Nas? Thanks, Rob
Hi Rob,

Yes you can use 8/10TB drives in this unit (we recommend the WD Reds), Type C cables are available, Please contact one of our sales team to discuss your setup and put together a quote for you

Great review thank you. I have two questions: (1) I'm assuming SSD would give better overall performance loaded into the bays (as opposed to Seagate Ironwolf that I am seeing advertised elsewhere), could you confirm SSD's would be the right choice and if so, do you have a top three I could use please (primary use 4K media streaming and maybe docker)? (2) Is the two bay any different at all from the 4-bay except more bays?

Yes SSD would give you better all-round performance but as it stands SSD's are much more expensive the HDD's - as you plan to use this in a NAS environment the full speed of the SSD's maybe slower as you will be limited by the Network - if you want true speed then stick with DAS. If capacity is not too important then SSD will be a great choice 


The 253b and 453b are the same spec - just bays and memory are different

I am loving this direct attach functionality! And I can even add M.2 SSD for caching. But that is probably more for virtual machines.

Hello, i wonder why you have given the ts-453b mini a 9 in performance, but this one an 8? SInce both devices use the same cpu? Or is there somehting else who makes the mini faster? Sincerly yours Fredrik

That is a very valid point. The reason for this is two fold. First off that the mini series device was reviewed when the J Series CPU was new and unparralelled and scoring higher on CPU benchmark than the Braswell CPU in the A series and serverd more as a comparison score at the time. 2nd reason is  more directed towards and regarding the lower score on the 
TS-453B. Now the 453B is almost released, the Intel J chip has been installed in more NAS devices and alongwith it's strengths we have had more time to gauge it against other chips (like the Pentium featured in the DS916+ from Synology) and these recent comparisons have resulted in us giving it an 8. In actual fact our scoring system should be more decimal really, as we should have given the BMini a 8.8 and the 453B an 8.5. I will take this up with the website team and see if improvements are possible. Otherwise, Both of these NAS devices are fantastic devices with a slight edge in almost all other areas in terms of features and functionality to the TS-453B
