NAS Server-Qnap HS-251 in the Test

With the HS-251, QNAP provides a NAS server for the living room, equipped with new direct-connection for the TV. The HS-251 must point in the test whether he really satisfies all requirements.

The Qnap HS-251 proves to be completely suitable for the living room in the test. And that not only in terms of facilities: the HS-251 fits visually into the parlor. While the competitors confine more or less chic to dress up their still some external hard drives, devices, Qnap has packed flat side by side the two hard drives in a black metal housing, which is well below the TV and is indistinguishable from a multimedia device.

More importantly for the compatibility of the living room: the Qnap HS-251 is passively cooled, so that apart from occasional access sounds of hard drives, no surrender fan film enjoy bothers.

Facilities: more than just an update

Its previous Qnap HS 210 could test make – up on the fact that the device has no HDMI output. Who wants to play content on a television set, needed another playback device such as a network player so in any case. This is Qnap comes in with the now-present model HS-251. Externally identical to its predecessor, the newcomer brings an HDMI output. Movies, music, and various apps can be displayed directly on the television, the control assumes the best a wireless keyboard-mouse combination.

But that’s not all: Qnap has revised the entire system. Even a slightly overworked ARM processor from Marvell 1.6 gigahertz, long-time in the predecessor shall the manufacturer on the HS-251 on an Intel Celeron 2.4 GHz with two cores clock frequency. The system acts so that such change: the user interface reacts rapidly, we could push data on the Qnap without more optimizations with rich 112 megabytes per second – which is close to the theoretical maximum in a Gigabit network. And while we have not even connected a second network cable – the HS-251 dominated also link aggregation and has two network ports for this purpose.

Features: NAS or Media Center

The massive increase computing power of the HS-251 allows additional applications: as a Media Center a don’t let la Apple TV or Amazon Fire TV (Test) only movies or photos on a television replay, but also install apps. And this function has it all: in addition to the usual suspects such as Spotify, TuneIn, YouTube and an Internet browser can be played on the Qnap on the Media Center Software XBMC also.

Who does not know XBMC: very nicely designed media surface can be controlled easily with the TV remote control and access in addition to the internal data sources through the so-called “Add-ons” to the libraries of ARD and ZDF, but also on numerous foreign sources of video and gets almost all available video services from the Internet. Not a few fans assembled specially for XBMC a Mini PC and place it next to the TV.

The rather cryptic installation of XBMC fortunately decreases a Qnap HS-251. Who is here schwadroniert – about the television of the future’s already realized.

Conclusion: Frugal, but not cheap

The question remains after the power consumption – Finally, so a NAS server should run Yes all day. Here too we can give the all-clear: the Qnap consumed about 18 Watts in standby paused-disk just above 9 Watts In operation. Other systems are here still more economical, but far from reach not the performance such as the HS-251. As well as with the price: around 450 euros without hard disks are compared competition rather much – but entirely appropriate for the offer.
