    Reviews - Qnap TS-451

    Tumbling prices add to the appeal of this four-bay SOHO NAS.

    Sounds to be a good all round performer and pretty decent looking device.
    It would aid the review (and future ones) if all compared devices also had their retail prices displayed in the comparison list.

    +1 for the prices please. Also interesting to see how well the WD EX-4100 performed, backing up the conclusion in March's review that it's a pretty decent device (I've got MyCloud and MyBook devices so the "bigger" model is interesting)

    Re: Reviews - Qnap TS-451

    I couldn't spot if the review said how many drives were used when running the tests?
    Was it all 4 and if so, did the 5 drive units also have 4 HDDs or 5 (and do we have power figures for those with just the 4 drives?). This is mainly aimed at the Synology 1515 as power consumption on that seems quite a bit higher considering it's use of an ARM based chip.

    Just checked the cost and the QNAP is a much better "bang for your buck"

    Re: Reviews - Qnap TS-451

    Unfortunately, here in Australia we get ripped off with high prices. The cheapest I can find one of these is over $700 for 4G ram. I have not been watching the price here, but it usually starts and stays high. For example :- Funny thing is that the old Atom powered TS-469L with 3GB RAM (a home user favorite) is still almost as expensive. What I would like to have seen was a comparison with the older hardware, to see what sort of performance difference there is. As the old 469 (even with the standard 1GB ram) was a good performer overall and depending on set-up could give reasonably close to 451 test speeds on a some tasks. Have not seen the 2 directly compared under test conditions, so I am just working off various reviews and their results - hard to specifically compare this way definitively, due to the different test situations.
    For general home use, either is good, but the 451 is using newer, more capable hardware.
    As for upgrading, not if I had a capable older model, but I would do it if I had a slow older NAS, or high speed encryption necessity, or a need for more storage space or any other specific need.
    There are so many good small NAS's out there now, it is only up to preferences, needs, and money.

    Re: Reviews - Qnap TS-451

    Is there much practical difference between 451 and 431?
