QNAP Systems has debuted its new 1.7GHz TS-x31K series for network-attached storage (NAS) of a residential or private magnitude. It comes in 1- to 4-bay SKUs, each of which supports Gigabit Ethernet and SATA 6Gb/s. They also all have AES-256 bit encryption and lockable bays.

In these days of ever-lengthening self-isolation, many households may benefit from its own data-storage set-up with options on a private cloud into the bargain - as may the individuals within them, for that matter. QNAP claims that its new TS-x31K series offers just such a solution.

These new NAS models are finished in the same white and muted blue housing that "blends in with any home décor and takes up very little space" and supports tool-less drive installation. Inside, it packs a new Alpine AL-214 1.7GHz quad-core processor developed by Annapurna Labs for "excellence" in its use-case. This chip is paired with 1GB of RAM.

The TS-x31K series allows for a Gigabit LAN via the requisite Ethernet port. 1 of these is found on the new line's 1-bay variant (the TS-131K), whereas the 2- and 4-bay SKUs (the TS-231K and TS-431K respectively) have 2 each.

These new QNAP home NAS towers are stocked by retailers such as Micro Center, as well as listed on platforms like SimplyNAS or Amazon.com. They start at US$189 and are available from now.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
