Qnap TS-251 Review
The Qnap TS-251 takes storage space and performance to an all-new level and then brings them together in a good quality NAS solution that performs well in all sorts of situations. If you are looking for a device that can help you out in both SOHO and household purposes, then this product from Qnap is able to do a good job.
If we already mentioned storage space as a perk of the Qnap TS-251, you should know exactly how much is at stake when it comes to it. You can easily fit inside of this NAS device ten hard drives for a total of up to 60 TB of storage space. Thus, if you need a personal cloud and you care about space, such a solution is more than welcome next to your computer. Under the hood you will find more than ten slots for hard drives. You actually have access to enough power to never feel it takes too long to complete a task.
The Qnap TS-251 is powered by an Intel Celeron 2.41GHz CPU with two cores and it also comes with 1 GB of RAM memory, but you can easily replace it and bring up to 8 GB of memory inside the NAS server. The CPU is also able to go into a Turbo mode and attain speeds of up to 2.58GHz under intensive full load. Read and write speeds are also a big bonus when it comes to this NAS device, as you are able to experience up to 220 MB/s. Encrypted files can also be transferred with speeds of up to 68 MB/s and you can achieve high transfer speeds even if you work with Wi-Fi, given the 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi dual-band capability.
Accessing the files you need or the ones you’ve just transferred is easy as one, two, three; thanks to the intuitive interface of the Qnap TS-251. The QTS interface is able to provide quick access to all the main functions you might need and multitasking is a real possibility, as well. If you need even more, you just have to access the App Center, where you can find a whole range of applications sorted by categories, each of them being useful, whether you want them for business or for entertainment.
Full HD video transcoding is one of the most praised features of the Qnap TS-251, something that makes it an extremely versatile piece which is really useful if you are interested in building a media center inside your house. Up to five different devices can watch media available on the NAS server and real-time transcoding makes it easy for each individual to enjoy high quality video. Moreover, you don’t have to worry about file format restrictions on the end-devices, because the source device will take care of everything so smooth playback is attained. Media streaming is also a possibility if you connect a DNLA-compatible device, such as a smart TV or a video game console, in order to enjoy fresh content at all times.
