In the last ten years or so, I have personally owned four main laptops from three different manufacturers. If you ask me what my favorite one of all time is, it will have to be my current one that I bought last year. It runs Windows 10 Pro, and comes load...
Bottom line If it was not for all the years we spent reviewing QNAP network attached storage systems, I would not even know where to start on the software side. The TS-453A is the tenth system we have received from the company since 2008, and honestly -- look at how...

As the next addition to QNAP's range, the TS-453A is a 4-bay NAS drive with a quad-core Intel Celeron N3150 processor. What makes this one different? For starters, its system information screen and its Linux capabilities help it to function as more than j...

Advanced media centers and small business require larger amounts of storage to save and share huge media files and data sets. With today's larger drive capacities, 4-bay NAS units like the QNAP TurboNAS TS-453A can handle most SMB backup and storage needs...
Good Dual HDMI outputs, VM Center, Quad LAN and being able to run Ubuntu with a few simple clicks, the TS453A has enough features to explore for a long time, The software suite is extensive, QNAP also keeps it's QTS operating system well updated, The unit even...
Bad Quad Gigabit LAN is certainly enough for most use cases, we would like to see options for faster 10 GbE networks for those of us that have needs for faster networks...
Bottom line After using the TS-251 for our last QNAP review, we found the TS-453A to be very similar in operation, and we felt right at home. What the TS-453A does right is the expanded storage with four drives, this gives significantly more capacity than the two bay...

QNAP has continued to innovate in network attached storage throughout 2016, with an interesting assortment of devices that utilise solid state drives, M.2 storage modules, alternative operating systems and high-speed network connections. The TS-453A, on t...
Bottom line On the surface, the QNAP TS-453A looks like another capable NAS performer, but at a current price of around $600, I'd want to see a decent all-round performance from the device.Sadly, this wasn't the case. The TS-453A offers the same strong suite of featu...

A Network Attached Storage system is a jack of all trades, a Swiss Army knife of interconnected computing, based on a bunch of drives that play nice with just about any computing platform. That is my definition anyways...But a NAS as a karaoke machine is...

Today we are checking out a very nice product from QNAP that changes the NAS game, something the company has been working towards over the past year it seems. It is becoming common place to find not one but two HDMI outputs on QNAP's NAS products, allowin...
Bottom line As popular as desktop NAS solutions from the likes of QNAP and Synology have become, they aren't exactly mainstream products and you certainly won't find one in every home - though I am sure both companies are working towards changing that in the future...

What does that have to do with a storage review? Well, karaoke files are larger than MP3s because they use a video format. High-quality karaoke in...
Good QNAP offers the best value beyond the box. The TS453A ships with a remote control and the largest software application list. This model with four Ethernet ports and four drive bays doesn't lose sight of the main purpose of having a NAS, it just expands th...
Bad QNAP didn't put a lot of effort into explaining what the TSx53A is capable of or what the audio brings to the system. On the product page, you have to move to the bottom of the page to find the new features. Even then, a karaoke NAS is very focused and le...

We would like to thank QNAP for supplying the review sample. The TS-453A is a NAS for small or medium-sized businesses or enthusiasts looking for a file-server with multimedia capabilities. QNAP's NAS uses Intel's very efficient Celeron N3150 CPU because...
Good High enough network-transfer speeds (although not as high as I expected), Energy efficient CPU with enough computing power, Silent operation, Low power consumption, QTS 4.2.1, 8 GB of RAM, Four Ethernet ports that can be teamed, Two HDMI (1.4a) ports, Two...
Bad Price and price gap between the 4G and 8G models is very large, Long boot time, Trays don't feature locks, Doesn't support a refresh rate above 30 Hz with UHD-1 (UHDTV) resolution, We weren't able to install the beta version of Linux Station...
Bottom line The QNAP TS-453A-8G retails for $749.99, and the TS-453A-4G (unit with 4 GB of RAM) retails for $599.99 High enough network-transfer speeds (although not as high as I expected) Energy efficient CPU with enough computing power Silent operation Low power co...
