Unveiled back in 2018, the QNAP TR-004 is finally available for purchase. This storage accessory is a 4-bay hardware RAID storage expansion device that sports USB 3.0 Type-C connectivity and can be attached to a PC or a NAS. When connected to a NAS, the TR-004 can be used as external storage or as an expansion storage device.

QNAP Systems has just unleashed the TR-004, a 4-bay hardware RAID storage expansion device that can be used to add external storage space to a list of supported QNAP NAS solutions, but it can also be employed to add hardware-based RAID storage to a PC or a NAS. 

In addition to the few specs and features mentioned above, the QNAP TR-004 comes with the following highlights:

  • individual, JBO, and RAID 0/1/5/10 storage configurations
  • external RAID protection support
  • compatible with devices that use the exFAT file system support (sadly, an exFAT driver license must be purchased to take advantage of this capability)
  • one-touch copy button for instant file backup
  • lockable hard-drive trays
  • disk health monitoring
  • Create Storage Pool support
  • disk mode DIP switch for setting RAID
  • compatible with Windows, macOS, and Linux computers

Those who want to know all there is about the QNAP TR-004 should watch the official presentation below. The price of the QNAP TR-004 depends on market and retailer, but it should be in the US$250-US$300 range.

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.
