Many, many new QNAP NAS server devices were announced and uncovered, alongside a number of already mentioned units in the pipeline. Today I want to talk to you about the latest and greatest Thunderbolt NAS release from QNAP – The Thunderbolt3 NAS for SSD and 2.5″ HDD, the QNAP TVS-882ST3 NAS. A recent update in production to the soon to be released QNAP TVS-882ST, this smaller form factor NAS server features an insane amount of connectivity! The Chassis is based on the older TS-853s 8-Bay NAS and is designed to be compact, with a lower power consumption, a lower noise and most importantly of all – to be POWERFUL. In all these points it delivers, but it is in the final point that it really delivers the killing blow.
