The TS-328 3-Bay NAS Enclosure from QNAP is their first NAS with only three drive bays, which allows users to build a RAID 5 array with the fewest possible hard drives, while also helping to ensure improved data protection, system performance, and greater available storage space, since only one drive is used for RAID 5's data redundancy. The TS-328 features a minimalist design that fits into your home or commercial space and with a variety of multimedia applications, 10-bit H.264/H.265 hardware decoding and transcoding, and cross-device file backup and synchronization, the TS-328 provides a highly cost-effective solution for storage, backup, file management, and sharing.
Network connectivity is achieved using two Gigabit Ethernet ports. When both ports are used simultaneously, read speeds can reach 225 MB/s, while write speeds max out at 155 MB/s. Encrypted transfers deliver read speeds of up to 222 MB/s and write speeds of up to 146 MB/s.
This 3-bay enclosure natively supports 3.5" SATA III hard drives, and 2.5" hard drives and SSDs are also supported using 2.5" drive trays. Using the two 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports and one 480 Mb/s USB 2.0 Type-A ports, this QNAP NAS can be connected to other devices, allowing you to easily transfer large media files via USB. Additionally, the TS-328 is validated with FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption, helping to prevent sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breaches.
In addition to RAID 5 compatibility, QNAP has engineered this NAS to also support RAID 0 and 1, and each of the three RAID modes offer data redundancy, performance, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD and single disk modes are also available.
QNAP's TS-328 3-Bay NAS Enclosure operates using an included 65W AC adapter that runs using 100-240V. Also included is a power cord, an Ethernet cable, and a 2.5" HDD/SSD drive base tray. Protection is provided by a limited 2-year warranty.
