Qnap TS-451 Review
For the first time, Qnap decided to offer its consumers a budget friendly NAS that performs just as its previous TS-× 70 units. The Qnap TS-451 is even better than the TS-×70 in some areas. This is the first ever NAS to use Intel’s newly launched Celeron J1800 CPU. In this regard, you shouldn’t be looking anywhere further if you want a NAS that can perform but still save energy at the same time.
It was inevitable to compromise some features in order to fit in a lower price tag but they might not be that harmful. First of all, the Qnap TS-451 only comes with a 1GB RAM but if you want one that comes with a 4GB RAM you need to dig deeper into your pockets. However, it’s not that bad as it can still perform as expected. Every NAS box runs its custom- made Linux Distributions and this makes it easy to go past the system requirements problem when using lower specs. This means that 1GB of RAM is sufficient to back a Celeron CPU and still perform well. However, this wouldn’t be the case if it were a normal PC. Another thing that made it possible for the price to go down significantly is the use of a plastic enclosure. This shouldn’t be a problem anyway if you don’t have any movements, and the plastic enclosure is well designed so no love lost.
Qnap also removed the metal HDD trays in a bid to cut the costs. If you want to exploit its multimedia capabilities close to your TV set, then the HDMI ports come in handy. With the Qnap TS-451 you are able to enjoy a plethora if activities with good control. It offers file synchronization, data backup, various cloud options, home entertainment remote access, transcoding Full HD videos and virtually anything you would expect from a NAS of this generation. You can as well expand the storage up to 60TB as it is compatible with the UX-800 enclosure.
With virtualization technology, you can run virtual machines. This means that you can operate various Operating systems on one platform. This budget friendly NAS is also capable of downloading the virtual machines and implementing them. Nevertheless, this would require an upgrade of the RAM if you would like to do all these activities. The Qnap TS-451 comes it 2 main versions, the 1GB one and the 4GB. The 4GB performs better than the 1GB one although after upgrading the RAM the TS-451’s performance increases significantly.
From my research, I can conclude that the TS-451 is a good budget friendly NAS for enthusiasts as well as small business owners. It comes with an impressive look, good performance and numerous features that are hard to ignore. The only problem is that upgrading the RAM is not as easy as the earlier models but to be in a better position, you’d better pick the 4GB one.
