The QNAP TS-251+ Vs The Thecus N2810 NAS – Brand VS Brand
DESIGN – Second only to the QNAP TS-253A, the QNAP TS-251+ is one of the best 2-bay NAS units from QNAP in the market this 2016. The design is the result of years of chassis design in previous unit and is very easy on the eye. A good combination of plastic and metal throughout where it counts.
FEATURES – With the exception of 4K transcoding and AES-NI level encryption, this NAS can do everything! Of course if you want things done to an enterprise level, then you should go for some bigger units, but you will be hard pushed to find a better 2 bay NAS for Plex Media Server NAS use, Virtual Machines and All things NAS – particularly at just over £200 to buy this NAS
PERFORMANCE – Again, easily a front runner in the 2-BAY NAS market for performance across all NAS use types. In this league of excellence you will find the QNAP TS-253A-4G and the Synology DS716+ NAS. Any of these 3 NAS devices will give you first class Network Attached Storage performance.
