VALUE FOR MONEY
|design||There are not many 6 Bay HDD NAS Servers out there - with the marketing being more interested in 2, 4 and 8 Bay NAS services. But the TVS-673 NAS is easily the best looking and most compact we have ever seen. In terms of the design, this 6 Bay NAS is a fantastic little device.|
|features||You name it, this NAS can do it. This QNAP NAS represents years of experience from QNAP and is one of the most impressive NAS devices available in 2017.|
|performance||The QNAP TVS-673 achieved high scores in Plex, Surveillance, Streaming, 4K Playback and Native transcoding. As well as hosting several VMs very well.|
|value||Starting around the £900+ mark without VAT - it may not be a cost effective NAS, but you will struggle to find a more powerful and functional NAS for your home or business in 2017 - we highly recommend this NAS.|
|design||It's heavy! Both in terms of physical weight and in it's foot-print. The energy consumption and noise (if you install enterprise class drives) are larger than average and if these two factors will bother you - then perhaps you should look at the TS-653A from QNAP.|
|features||The only feature missing from the TVS-673 is Thunderbolt2 NAS connectivity|
|performance||The 2 PCIe slots included are useful but one is occupied with the USB 3.1 Gen 2 2x port card. It is a fantastically useful port - BUT it is a shame that it is advertised as 2 PCIe slots but one is taken by default.|
|value||The Absence of Thunderbolt is a shame - even as an optional PCIe card.|
