VALUE FOR MONEY
|design||6-Bay NAS devices are always slightly ignored in the broader technological community. Pricing for them generally means that you feel you could buy a 4-Bay and put the saved money towards bigger HDD. Or you think if I just spend a tiny bit more, I can buy an 8-Bay NAS. However in the case of teh TS-653B NAS, QNAP have managed to hit the design and the cost for this 6-Bay perfectly. Alot of this is down to that compact and mostly plastic chassis. Managing to be quiter than more likewise sized NAS, the TS-653B also gives you the functionality and connectivity of a 8-Bay, whilst still saving you space, energy consumption and money. Easy in my TOP 3 6-Bay NAS of all time.|
|features||As already mentioned in the TS-253B and TS-453B, this NAS is the produt of years of design and innovation from QNAP. It manages to be both small, yet feature (or let you upgrade to) almost every conceivable connection type. 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 that those looking for the perfect balance of storage capacity vs physical size and ability will choose this 2017.|
|performance||The QNAP TS-653B arrives with the new and fast 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. You will be looking at an excellent degree of future proofing in this NAS server.|
|value||When I first heard about this NAS back in Feb 2017 at a Photography tradeshow, I was interested. When it was on show at ITPartners 2017 expo, I was impressed. When it was on display at CeBit 2017 I was excited and now I am fully set consider this and the TS-253B and TS-453B to be real game changers for many this year. It really comes down to this and the TS-c53A Series for your NAS needs. Step up Synology, time to fight back on this!|
|design||For those who prefer a litte more metal in their hardware, you may well wish to opt for the QNAP TS-653A. What it lacks in connectivity, it gains in almost 95% metal design.|
|features||There is still no denying that for many users, 6-Bays is just not the right number and will fast make the switch to TS-453B NAS.|
|performance||Lacking popular options like Thunderbolt 3 and 10GBe (though that can be added with a PCIe card in the PCIe x8 slot on the back) and this may be a dealbreaker for some.|
|value||Once again, many will be put off by the plastic and lack of Thunderbolt 3 connectivity and will consider skiping this in favour of the TVS-1282 series.|
