back of Qnap Silent NAS

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • USB 2.0 - A common connection in most devices, USB or Universal Serial Bus gives your Qnap the ability to data between devices such as external hard drives and flash storage keys at up to 480Mb per second. In some larger, more advanced enclosures, you are able to connect peripherals such as keyboards and mice to a Storage enclosure, however we recommend contacting the manufacturers website here for more details on compatibility.

Qnap Silent NAS HS-251+ 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.

Qnap Silent NAS HS 251+ reviews


14/06/2017 | | GB Flag |
4K video playback on my TV - what more can I ask.
16/02/2017 | Paul J | US Flag |
I need an NAS for a small business. I have about 400MB of data to put on it and I don't think it will outgrow 1TB of storage. I need a long stable life for the data, and I expect decent speed. I'm considering a Synology DS-216+II with a couple WD Red Pro 2TB drives in a mirror, but I'm starting to think that I can do better. I think a single bay NAS with a 1TB Samsung 850 Pro might live longer and perform better, although it would cost more (the $200 difference is acceptable for now). Is there a single bay Synology or other NAS that will support the Samsung SSD (use the TRIM function)? Synology tech support told me only the x86/x64 CPUs do this, and did not mention a 1 bay option.

Most NAS's will support 2.5" SSD's but if you need "Trim" then that limits the options. Please note: The SSD's will not improve the transfer rate in a NAS as you are limited be the network speed and the type of file you are copy/reading. SSD's will improve the access time and general performance but if you want speed stick with a DAS device.

For audio application especially for HD music streaming and retrieval from Qnap Silent NAS HS-251+, can this NAS be accessed directly to a DAC (digital analog converter) eg Mytek Stereo192-DSD DAC? Or does it need to go through a computer? If direct, can it access via LAN or USB or both?

As long as your "DAC" system can access the network as the HS-251 is a NAS (Network attached Storage) The Qnap does have a HDMI port that allows for video and audio "OUT" but please check if your system has that feature. If you are not sure of your setup I would recommend looking at the Qnap forum;

Plex is running just fine, I could do KODI using HDMI but i prefer to watch on tablets and different TVs in my house.

Qnap stopped listing KODI in their apps, but you can still install it manually! So I got really nice use of its HDMI port.

Great buy!
1. Can i use it like a file server? I can sync files from my PC.
2. Can I back it up. It can do RAID 1 for safety.
3. can use included remote?

I'm thinking about getting this NAS to use as a Plex server as mentioned in this video. My question is, can I play videos from my Plex library via the HDMI connection without any other device (smart phones, computers, etc)? if yes, how can it be achieved? using the remote control that comes with it or through the QNAP web user interface?
By connecting the HDMI interface, you can choose to access your PLEX library as well as a host of other direct HDMI attached services (Kodi, HD Station, QNAP Video Station, etc). You can install of them for free at the point of installation and the app store. You can view the unit HERE at SPAN.COM - https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Silent-NAS-HS-251-2-Bay-RAID-0-1-2GB-RAM-~52721

Hi SPANdotCom, I was going to purchase this , however ran into this video and just wanted to make sure about its transcoding capabilities via PLEX if multiple clients are possibly connected remotely , as i have heard the CPU usage jump to 75-90% for a single plex client as opposed a CPU usage of appx 8% if transcoded using the native qnap engine. Please can you advise?.. I already have a heavy multi-synology setup at home, however I'm purely interested in the product for its low wattage and use plx on this and give my synology unit a rest and save power too. Would appreciate any comments that could help me decide to take the plunge, have you or can you confirm how it fares CPU's wise with Plex? Thanks in advance appreciated. Rgds

Good morning Saty

Thank you for your enquiry and I hope you wish to complete your purchase with SPAN.COM. We have run numerous tests on the HS-251+ (we have an up and coming comparison soon to be released on our YouTube Channel between this and the TS-251+) and found we have been able to run 3 1080p files over plex with little or no drop in Bitrate. With regards to the hardware, the CPU in this device is one of the best 1080p transcoding CPUs available in the NAS market today. It is only surpassed in this regard by larger units with intel i3, i5 and i7 processors. Of course, utilising the native apps from QNAP to communicate your movies and large files for transcoding will produce great results and a lessened resource consumption, however  the platform is not so readily usable in all network media environments as PLEX is. If you are able to adapt the QNAP apps on all your devices, then all the better and you will see even better results!


I do not have the precise CPU figures to hand to give you precise estimations of Plex use on the CPU %, however we have haven't heard about this high level of system resource use and have not witnessed it ourselves. 


If you wish to consider a synology equivalent, then I would recommend the Synology DS716+ HERE as (though it does not have the HDMI access and utilises more power), it has equally high results in PLEX, will sync with your other synology units better and is in stock and available NOW from SPAN.COM today.


Thank you for your question and I look forward to you reply.

Very nice review. Have you also tried the fanless HS-251+???
Yes, and it is a nippy little device! They weren;t kidding about how quiet it is. We have an overview and an unboxing video being released later this week. In the meantime if you are interested in the new Silent NAS box, the QNAP HS-251+, then you should head over to SPAN.COM where it is on Black Friday/ Cyber Monday promotions (online website orders only and till 5pm GMT today - about 8+ hours left. Offer only extends to orders placed online). We have stock incoming and it is selling through fast. You can find the unit here - https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Silent-NAS-HS-251-2-Bay-RAID-0-1-2GB-RAM-~52721

Good question Gareth Dore. I would also like to know the setbacks of a silent NAS like this one compared to for exampe TS-251+. Will the drives last shorter time due to heat issues for example?
Aside from the obvious disadvantage of an increase in temperature due to the lack of fans (somewhat ffset by the physical design in areas. I doubt it would cause untold damage to the drives as they are designed with this storage environment in mind and have increased resistance to adverse heat effects. That aside the only other failings I can think of against the TS-251+ is that the QNAP TS-251+ is lower in price, has the one touch backup button, more LEDs for monitoring and the ability to upgrade the RAM. Put like that, the TS-251+ is a slam dunk! I was jsut about the make a comparison video on these units but it would appear that I may not need to... Regardless, if you are interested in purchasing either of these devices, please use the links below to see more info about specs and purchasing TS-251+-2G - https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Desktop-NAS-TS-251-2G-2-Bay-RAID-0-1-2GB-RAM-~51037 QNAP HS-251+ - https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Silent-NAS-HS-251-2-Bay-RAID-0-1-2GB-RAM-~52721 I've had your attention this far, could you indulge me a little longer? Why not purchase your QNAP NAS directly from us? We ship Worldwide and I think you'd be surprised how low we can go with shipping prices. It won't cost you anything to find out. Simply send your name and address (plus of course confirming the device you want) to robbie@span.com or even sales@span.com and they will get back to you within the hour with the best price and shipping (maybe even free) to you. Then at least you have the answer. Let's be honest, you have the guys like Amazon and Ebay to go for, but we are selling a solution, not just a box (I am aware how 'salesman' that sounded, but bear with me). We will tailor the box (RAID, Firmware and all) to your needs, provide after sales technical support and better warranty support than generic online shops. Bottom line, all it will cost you at this stage is an e-mail.
