  • Currently I’m running a set of disks of mixed brands in a RAID 5 configuration and the performance is still quite good internally.
  • Has RAID5 with storage pools and thin provisioning, RAID scrubbing/maint scheduler.

What customers say about "Interfaces"
QNAP TS-453Be 8TB Desktop NAS Solution
  • Using this at home since it supports 4K HDMI and Plex hardware accelerated streaming.
  • Most of the softwares are user friendly. Good conectivity.
  • Great connect. Good storage. Good memory. Fast speed.
  • Trying to access USB attached external storage will crash your files system and make your external drive unusable.
  • HDMI support was mediocre, largest problem I had was it partitioned a 128GB disk for use in the storage pool.
QNAP TS-453B Network Attached Storage with PCIe Port
  • The LAN port is great and using a good quality lan cable gives you light fast speeds.
  • Transfer rates are very decent. I've uploaded to the NAS without issues when connected via LAN or Wi-Fi.
  • The unit itself is quiet enough and transfer speeds seem ok.
  • I was getting about 80MB/sec copying data to the NAS. Clearly not as good as the near wire line speeds on my current QNAP.
  • The transfer speeds that I was seeing, have dropped steadily as more data has been copied onto the NAS.
