    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

    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...

  • Good: Supports IoT solutions, Impressive 128k sequential performance, Versatile

    Bad: Weak CIFS performance

    By integrating the TS-453A's comprehensive QTS environment with IoT support and Linux's open-source platform, QNAP has delivered a novel storage solution that caters towards progressive SOHO users...

    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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

    The QNAP TS-453A introduces some new features that may be useful to some users. OceanKTV will have a limited impact. The dual HDMI display with dual OS capability will have a lasting impact that developers can build on. We keep hearing about the Interne...

    Date: 2/16/2016

    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

    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...

  • TS-453A is one of the newest NASes from QNAP and has quite a bit of functions like a complex QTS web interface, dual HDMI for output on HDTVs or 4K displays, HD Station HDMI GUI with more applications than before, Linux Station which allows us to run Ubun...
