These new Turbo NAS models can accommodate up to eight 2.5-inch drives and offer excellent performance and features in a small package.

QNAP Systems announced last Friday a triad of high-performance SSD NAS models for 2.5-inch drives. These are the 4-bay TS-453S Pro and TS-451S, as well as the 8-bay TS-853S Pro. According to QNAP's product manager Jason Hsu, "The new SSD NAS series features an exclusive hardware design that allows users to easily upgrade their RAM to enjoy smoother multi-tasking operations, especially for heavy users who run lots of multimedia applications."

Designed to host 4 or 8 SSDs, these devices can also work with classic hard drives or hybrids that use the 2.5-inch form factor. They feature Intel processors, RAID 5 capability, HD Station-powered home theater multimedia experience, as well as QNAP's QvPC Technology that allows a Turbo NAS to be used as a standalone PC.

Compared to the existing TS-453 Pro, the new TS-453S Pro has the following advantages: uses 50 percent less space, is 45 percent lighter, has a lower price and needs 62 percent less power. According to the official press release, the TS-451S will reach end users "within a month," but pricing has not been announced. Unfortunately, there is no public information about availability and pricing of the other two models, either.

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.
