Thanks to this award, the QNAP TVS-873 NAS will be shown for an entire year in the Red Dot Design Museum. This NAS is driven by a 3rd gen AMD R-Series APU and features up to 64 GB RAM, USB 3.1 Gen 2 connectivity, dual HDMI out, and more.

Yesterday, QNAP Systems announced that one of its products has just been recognized for its design. According to the official press release, "the TVS-873 NAS has won the honorable Red Dot Award for high design quality." As a direct consequence of this achievement, the Red Dot Design Museum will keep this product in its collection for an entire year.

QNAP's TVS-873 NAS is one of the few such accessories to use an AMD processor. Next to the R-Series RX-421BD quad-core APU, it also features up to 64 GB DDR4 memory, AES-NI hardware encryption, two M.2 slots for auto-tiering, dual HDMI out, 10 GbE expandability, USB 3.1 Gen 2, and more. The AMD processor mentioned above enables this NAS to offer dual HDMI 4K output without any hiccups.

After thanking for the award, QNAP's design director revealed the following: "We knew we were building something special when designing the TVS-873, so we decided to match its exceptional internal hardware with a special external appearance for unique and eye-catching aesthetics."

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.
