QNAP intros the TS-351 home NAS with dual NVMe M.2 slots
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.
