QNAP's new HS-453DX silent NAS is a storage accessory for home users that sports an Intel Celeron quad-core processor, 4K real-time transcoding, and 10 GbE connectivity. The best part of it all is that these capabilities are provided via a fanless set-top design that is perfect for living rooms and home theater setups.

QNAP Systems is back with a new NAS that targets home users who want a silent storage solution that can handle multiple tasks. The HS-453DX comes with a stylish set-top design and passive cooling, these design choices making it a perfect choice for home theater setups. Before moving on, it is worth mentioning that the QNAP HS-453DX has won the CES 2019 Innovation Award and Computex d&i Award for high-quality product design.

The highlights of the new HS-453DX silent NAS include an Intel Celeron J4105 processor, 4 GB or 8 GB of DDR4 memory, two 3.5-inch SATA drive bays, two M.2 2280 SSD slots, 10 GbE connectivity via a built-in 10 GBASE-T five-speed port,  an HDMI 2.0 port for direct 4K 60Hz output, and more. This NAS is capable of read/write speeds of up to 677 MB/s and can be used for dual-channel 4K real-time transcoding, as a karaoke machine, a centralized home multimedia hub, or as a Plex Media Server that streams content to various devices.

The QNAP HS-453DX is already available for purchase in two variants: HS-453DX-8G (2 x 4 GB RAM) and HS-453DX-4G (2 x 2 GB RAM). Their prices may vary depending on market and retailer, as usual, but more details should be available on QNAP's official website.

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.
