Qnap TVS-1271U-RP review

You’re spoilt for choice with Qnap’s latest rack NAS appliance

Common features

Whether you opt for a Pentium or Core i7, you'll find many features are common across them all. The motherboard presents four USB 3 and four USB 2 ports at the rear and the HDMI port alongside links up with Qnap's QvPC technology.

The price includes dual hot-plug PSUs while internal cooling is handled by three cold-swap fans. However, these are noisy enough to make this appliance a poor choice for small offices that value tranquillity.

Qnap's optional dual-port SAS PCI-e card unlocks a truly massive expansion potential. It supports up to eight REXP-1600U-RP 16-bay disk enclosures and with Hitachi's freshly certified 8TB helium drives, you can push total raw capacity to over 1PB.

The Storage Manager app handles all disk storage, read cache and encrypted volume configuration
