This compact and versatile NAS is the world's first M.2 SSD NAS with a built-in hardware-based network switch, being able to accommodate up to 4 M.2 SSDs and featuring a quad-core Intel processor.

QNAP Systems unleashed a whole new product today, opening another niche in the storage market. Dubbed TBS-453A NASbook, this 4-bay device is the world's first M.2 SSD-based NAS with a built-in hardware-based network switch. According to its makers, this is "a compact and versatile NAS, ideal for file sharing and multimedia applications."

The hardware specs of the TBS-453A include a 14 nm Intel Celeron N3150 quad-core processor, dual channel 4 GB or 8 GB DDR3L memory, 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports and 3 Gigabit switch ports with support for switch and private network modes. As it usually happens with QNAP storage products, the available space of the TBS-453A can be expanded by connecting an 8-bay UX-800P or 5-bay UX-500P expansion enclosure.

QNAP TBS-453A is available in six setups, three with 4 GB RAM and three with 8 GB RAM. The three setups for each memory option come without SSDs inside, with 2X240 GB SSDs, or with 4X240 GB SSDs. They can be acquired from the company's authorized resellers or directly from QNAP, as usual.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
