Bargains and Deals on QNAP NAS Drives this Prime Day 2022
ANOTHER Amazon Prime Day in 2022? Yep, just a month before Black Friday kicks off and Amazon has decided to host an impromptu 2nd in-house sale event beginning on Tuesday 11th until midnight on Wednesday 12th. Whether it is a brand new purchase that you have been researching these past months OR you are looking to upgrade your old TS-253 Pro or TS-453A NAS, there seems to be ALOT of planned discounts globally for the current and previous generation of QNAP NAS drive systems. With several high profile SMB NAS systems in the TS-x64 and TS-x62 range alluded to in the last month, this would likely be the time that the current TS-x53D, TS-51D and even TVS-x72 feature some great discounts. Below is my breakdown of the QNAP NAS systems for budget buyers, Plex Media Server, fast backups, surveillance and even something for the video editors after a 10GbE/Thunderbolt NAS solution – the majority of which will be on offer this Prime Day. Alongside this, I will be updating this page regularly throughout the week with further Prime Day deals that myself and my team spot throughout the week in everything from NAS, to DAS, from routers to switches and from HDDs to SSDs! Before we go any further though – What are the MAIN deals you should look for this Prime Day 2022? Let’s begin.

TOP QNAP NAS Deals to Watch Out For on Prime Day 2022
Even though there will likely be numerous deals on QNAP NAS systems (largely focused on desktop NAS systems of course), the following three NAS Drives are the ones I recommend for those on a tight budget, those looking for an affordable media/plex server or those looking to do a little bit fo EVERYTHING! I have linked each to Amazon in order to check how much it will be on offer during Prime Day (all three have been on offer at Amazon Prime day 2022 AND Prime Day last year), but they will all likely be on offer in numerous locations during the event too. Here is what I recommend:
QNAP TS-453D NAS Drive – An absolute stone-cold classic! Arriving with a little it of everything (2.5GbE, Intel CPU, DDR4 Memory, 4K HDMI, PCIe Slot, etc) it arrived on the NAS market in summer 2020 and have never left our top 5 NAS systems here on NASCompares. With the recent talk of the TS-464 follow up (first mentioned on the official QNAP YouTube) this NAS will 100% be on offer during Prime Day 2022. Check it HERE.
QNAP TS-451D2 NAS Drive – Another release from the D series, the QNAP TS-451D2 was released back in spring 2022 and was largely overshadowed by the TS-251D and TS-x53D series released on either side of it. This is a real shame, as it really is an unsung hero of the QNAP desktop NAS portfolio. Arriving with great performance n Plex at this price point, as well as supporting the bulk of QNAP QTS 5 software and services. This QNAP NAS is regularly on offer and is an absolute certainty to be on sale in numerous locations this Prime Day 2022. Check it HERE.
QNAP TS-230 NAS Drive – The TS-230 was first revealed back in winter 2019 and is very much at the affordable end of the QNAP NAS desktop portfolio. That said, arriving in a fantastically petite and discreet chassis, this 2-Bay NAS is Realtek 64bit powered (so snapshots, 4K transcoding and AI Photo features), default 2GB DDR4 memory and for such an understated and low priced NAS, manages to do a heck of a lot! Given the age of the unit and it’s popularity on amazon as a great budget NAS option, the TS-230 (and TS-130 1-Bay) are positive to be on sale this Prime Day 2022. Check it HERE.

QNAP NAS to Watch Out For this Prime Day 2022
Below is a list of the QNAP NAS that I would recommend for different users. Each has been picked for this list based on their ability to perform a certain task/service (backups, Plex Media Server, Surveillance, Video Editing, etc) and I have supplied links to amazon for each (to check stock and price status), as well as links to the amazon warehouse pages (as it will be a 20% off this Prime Day) and even links to our NASCompares price comparison pages. Take a look and see if these systems meet your needs and your budget this Prime Day 2022.
QNAP TS-131K 1-Bay – Budget NAS
QNAP TS-130 1-Bay – Small & Quiet NAS
QNAP TS-431KX 4-Bay – Value 10GbE NAS
Prime Day 2022 – QNAP NAS Drives for PLEX
One of the big appeals of a QNAP NAS drive is to use it as a Plex Media Server. Plex (if you didn’t know) is just as slick, fast and beautiful in design as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and HBO Now, but instead of streaming/renting your content, you play the movies, tv shows and music that you own! Having your own Plex Media Server QNAP NAS is fantastically appealing and a much more financially appealing choice than paying monthly for content you do not get to own. Below are the best 3 QNAP NAS deals this Prime Day for a Plex Media Server in 2022.
QNAP TS-451D2 4-Bay – RAID 5 Plex NAS
QNAP TS-453D 4-Bay – Best All-Round NAS
QNAP TVS-672XT 6-Bay – 10GbE & TB3 NAS

Hot Tips when you Buy a NAS this Prime Day 2022
In order for you to get the very best NAS deals this Prime Day, here are some hot tips that I have personally used for the last few years to get the very best deals.
Amazon Warehouse Deals are 20% lower
For those that aren’t aware, Amazon has a whole section of their website that is dedicated to pre-owned and opened items. This includes both NAS, hard drives, SSD and more for your storage. During Amazon Prime Day 2022, the discount on these broken-seal items will be increased by an additional 20% and for those looking for an insane bargain, this will be irresistible.
Another tip when buying NAS or Hard Drives from Amazon Warehouse is that although (as they are broken seal/used/returned items) they have a shorter warranty from Amazon, you will almost certainly be able to claim the FULL warranty coverage from Synology, QNAP, WD or Seagate. They just want your serial number and a receipt of purchase – this will not state the amazon reduced warranty.
Amazon Warehouse for different countries can be found below:
Latest Deals Update and Notifications
If you want to make sure you see the LATEST Prime Day deals for NAS (as new ones are added every hour) then I would recommend checking the official Amazon Prime page regularly. It will also include the very latest Lightning Deals too
US Amazon – Amazon Deals Page
UK Amazon – Amazon Deals Page
Amazon Prime for FREE
The prices listed on Amazon for NAS during the Prime Day event are only available to Prime members. If you are not a member, don’t worry, as you can use the 30-Day free trial to sign up for a Prime, or just pay for 1 month of Prime as a student and get it at 50% off. Then after you finish your purchase, you can cancel your subscription. The other bonus of this is that you will qualify for fast, next day delivery for free. I would recommend however that you do not cancel your subscription until you have received your order and tested your item.
As then you will still be able to take advantage of the fast and free return policy extended to Prime members. This is especially useful when buying NAS Hard Drives and you are worried about broken drives!
Improved Delivery on your NAS Prime Day Deal
It is a well-known fact that Amazon Prime membership includes free next day delivery and Amazon has even upped the stakes by stating that they will be providing the fastest-ever Prime Day delivery of just 14 minutes between the cart and the courier, last year we saw and heard numerous examples of delivery issues with Prime Day deals, adding 2-3 days on supposed next-day shipping.
If any of your Amazon Prime delivery dates are not the 24 hours turn around that they promise, then definitely complain to Amazon after you receive your goods (not before) as they will almost certainly have a deluge of customer enquiries after Prime Day 2022 and in an effort to conclude the matter, you might get an additional discount, a gift vouchers or more. Currently, the trending ‘gesture of goodwill’ gift is a free month of Prime membership.
