4 Bay NAS with DAS via USB 3? Is this new QNAP NAS too good to be true?

The QNAP TS-451A USB 3.0 DAS and NAS Walkthrough and Talkthrough with SPAN 2 I am sure that, like me, many of you have heard rumblings of the latest 2-Bay NAS from QNAP NAS technologies. Hot on the heals of their latest thunderbolt 2 NAS, they have announced their range of USB 3.0 DAS enabled NAS units.  Yes, the QNAP TS-251A and TS-451A are two of the most interesting NAS’ as far as the home and SMB market released this year. It has often been a slight annoyance to a few that for all the data they store on their QNAP NAS device, that it is only truly accessible via the internet/network. The new TS-X51A range hopes to sort this out once and for all, and via the simple connection of USB 3.0 too. The TS-451A-2G features the following:

  • 14nm Intel® Celeron® N3060 dual-core 1.6GHz processor, up to 2.48GHz (same as DS216+II)
  • 2 or 4GB RAM (maximum of 8GB across two slots)

NAS and DAS? How does that work?

• Connect a USB cable to the front of the NAS (slim USB 3.0 type Micro B)
• Connect other end to your PC or Mac via a standard USB Type A port
• Connect and access your device for the first time using QFinder Pro software (free)
• NAS can still be accessed in traditional NAS way whilst USB Direct Attached accessed is used
• Password and User account control can be applied or suspended as required for protection
•  Native 4K and HD Transcoding – though cannot expect the same height in Plex Performance
Dual OS support like the X53A range
