Powered by the Intel Celeron J1800 processor, the QNAP TS-351 NAS targets home users with features like media streaming and real-time transcoding, two M.2 slots with support for M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs with the 2280 form factor, 2 or 4 GB of memory (upgradeable to 8 GB), 3 hot-swappable bays, and more.

Although the Intel Celeron J1800 is no less than five years old, it looks like this rather old processor still can be useful in brand-new products. QNAP Systems chose to go with this half-decade old silicon for the new TS-351 home NAS that otherwise packs a full set of up-to-date specs and features.

The QNAP TS-351 comes in only two models, namely the TS-351-4G and TS-351-2G. The names follow QNAP's old naming conventions, so the only difference between these models is the amount of memory - 4 GB or 2 GB, in both cases expandable to 8 GB. The list of common specs and features is quite long and includes 3 hot-swappable 3.5 inch drive bays (with support for 2.5-inch drives, of course), two M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe slots, full HD HDMI 1.4a output, Gigabit LAN (RJ45), one USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, and one 3.5 mm audio jack.

This storage solution runs the latest QTS operating system (4.3.5 as of today) that provides a full set of capabilities for multimedia entertainment and file management in a home environment, including AES 256-bit encryption for both full volumes and shared folders, media streaming and real-time transcoding, and more.

As always, this new storage solution by QNAP can be found via the company's partners across the world so the prices will vary depending on the market and retailer.

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.
