QNAP TS-253BE-4G-US overview

  • 1Description

Built for media creators and creative professionals working in office and home environments, the TS-253Be 2-Bay NAS Enclosure from QNAP features an empty PCIe 2.0 x2 slot that can further boost productivity via a separately sold QNAP QM2 expansion card to add M.2 SSD caching/10GbE connectivity and support for Qtier auto-tiering technology, or install a compatible wireless card to use the TS-253Be as a wireless access point. Also supported is dual-channel 4K H.264/H.265 processing to provide a smooth media viewing experience on connected devices, as well as a wide range of separately sold productivity tools.

The TS-253Be is powered by a 1.5 GHz Intel Celeron J3455 Quad-Core processor, which can be overclocked to 2.3 GHz, and 4GB of DDR3L RAM, which can be upgraded to 8GB. Network connectivity is achieved using the dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, which support failover, multi-IP settings, port trunking, and NIC teaming. Using both Gigabit Ethernet ports, read and write speeds max out at 225 MB/s, with and without encryption, while sequential throughputs with dual 10GbE ports deliver read speeds up to 659 MB/s and write speeds up to 648 MB/s.

The TS-253Be has two drive bays that can natively house both 3.5" and 2.5" SATA III hard drives or SSDs. Using the five 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports, this QNAP NAS can be connected to other QNAP devices, including UX-800P and UX-500P expansion enclosures. Additionally, the TS-253Be is validated with AES-NI and FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption, helping to prevent sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breaches.

QNAP has engineered the TS-253Be to support JBOD and single disk modes, plus a variety of RAID modes, including RAID 0, which supports enhance performance, and RAID 1, which supports 1:1 data redundancy. It operates using an included 65W power supply and also includes two Ethernet cables, a power cord, and a 2.5"/3.5" drive screw kit. Protection is provided by a limited 2-year warranty.

General Features

Extend NAS Functionalities with the PCIe Slot
With PCIe expansion, the TS-253Be provides flexibility in extending NAS functionality and potential applications. Install a QNAP QM2 card to provide M.2 SSD caching/10GbE connectivity, or use the TS-253Be as a wireless access point by installing a compatible wireless network card (ex. QNAP QWA-AC2600), or boost the USB connectivity of the TS-253Be by installing a 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 card (USB 3.1 Gen 2).
1.5 GHz Intel Celeron J3455 Quad-Core CPU with AES-NI Encryption
Powered by a 1.5 GHz Intel Celeron J3455 Quad-Core processor (burst up to 2.3 GHz), 4GB of DDR3L RAM (up to 8GB), dual Gigabit LAN ports, and supporting SATA III 6 Gb/s hard drives and solid-state drives, the TS-253Be provides dependable performance, wtih read and write speeds of up to 225 MB/s. The TS-253Be features Intel AES-NI hardware-accelerated encryption to drive transfer speeds of up to 225 MB/s with AES 256-bit encryption for both full NAS volumes and shared folders, boosting system performance while ensuring the security of sensitive data stored in the TS-253Be. When used with dual 10GbE ports via an optional expansion card, read speeds are boosted up to 659 MB/s and write speeds increase up to 648 MB/s.
Protect Data with Snapshots
Snapshots help protect your data by fully recording the NAS system state and metadata. If a file is accidentally deleted or modified, you can use snapshots to quickly restore the file to its previously-recorded state. QNAP snapshots are block-based and only record the changed data. Not only does this save storage space but also reduces the time required to back up and restore data. The TS-253Be supports up to 1024 snapshots per NAS and up to 256 snapshots per volume or LUN.
Upgrade Your IT Environment with QNAP's 10GbE Switch
QNAP 10GbE/NBASE-T unmanaged switches allow you to instantly upgrade your network environment at a cost-effective price. With a 10GbE network, you can enjoy faster transfer speeds, empower bandwidth-demanding tasks like virtualization, and enable simultaneous real-time access to large NAS-based files using multiple workstations (good for video editing and multimedia). QNAP also provide a 10GbE PCIe network expansion card for the TS-253Be and Windows/Linux systems to take advantage of high-speed LAN environments.
Real-Time Video Transcoding
Featuring 9th-generation Intel HD Graphics, the TS-253Be supports dual-channel 4K H.264/H.265 hardware decoding and real-time transcoding, allowing you to convert videos to universal file formats that can be smoothly played on multiple devices. Therefore, you can easily share movies and videos stored on your NAS with family and friends for their enjoyment on a range of devices. The QNAP RM-IR004 remote control (sold separately) can be configured using QButton to customize the actions of individual buttons, providing a more convenient NAS experience.

Note: The TS-253Be's hardware provides H.264/H.265 hardware decoding, encoding, and transcoding capabilities. However, playback quality may vary due to factors, including playback software, file formats, system usage, and available bandwidth.
Multiple Ways to Enjoy Videos
NAP provides a wide range of multimedia applications for you to easily enjoy photos, music, and videos. QVHelper allows users to stream media files or music playlists from a QNAP NAS to VLC player. Qmedia allows music, photos, and videos to be streamed to Android TVs or set top boxes. Lastly, Video HD is a free KODI add-on that combines KODI's streaming and video decoding capabilities and fully supports Video Station's features.
Multiply Your Productivity
The app-driven QTS operating system provides solutions for simplifying file backup, management, search, and more. With File Station, you can view and manage your files not only from the NAS, but also from multiple storage devices. The OCR Converter allows you to extract text from images, Qfiling helps automate file organization, and Qsirch helps quickly find files.

Centralized File Management
