TS-464 And HS-264 Silent NAS Uncovered

What Should We Expect From the QNAP HS-264 and TS-464 NAS?

Although no hardware specifications of these two NAS systems have been revealed, there is a lot of info we can make educational guesses at. Below is a breakdown of what I think we will see in these two NAS releases:

IMPORTANT – These ARE NOT confirmed specifications and are just based on comparing against other devices in a similar product family OR based on dialogue/images from the QNAP Livestream

  1. Owning Synology DS216Play and DS918+ for some time, I’m looking forward to switch to QNAP as I don’t like the direction of Synology steering their prosumer market segment. With DSM 7.0 they intentionally broke USB peripheral devices and killed community created addons with small or neglible DSM improvements.
    Hardware wise, there is nothing there to support HW based transcoding and strong CPU backend while leveraging use of SSD for caching and provisioning.
    QNAP seems to be in good position to close the gap with QTS v5 as it looks very polished and fluid. Their engineering is obviously listening to the userbase and slowly intruducing changes they feel profitable.

  2. The sheer size of a 4 bay Qnap/synology nas ( even a 2 bay ) seems too big for the average home user…..
    With sizes of PCs dropping, with the likes of NUCs, I’ve wondered for sometime why NAS manufacturers haven’t gone down the same route?
    Yes we’ve got the DS Slim range from synology but they’ve not put particularly good processors in them…

    How about a double nuc sized NAS, with a decent processor, plenty RAM and just a couple of 2.5 bays for RAID1/backup………?
    Then all us home users can just use it for the basics of photos/videos/files/surveillance station/plex/video station ?
    And leave the bigger NAS to the business users who need VM/multi users/sharing…….?
