26/02/2016

WTF Friday will be a weekly blog post here at Buyur, dedicated to us explaining to you what the most unheard of products are for, what they do and why they are needed in your life! We aren't talking about the obvious things such as printers and phones...we mean the things that seriously make you go WTF!? What's this for?! Here at Buyur HQ we see hundreds of things come through our doors on a regular basis that make us react just like that, so we thought we need to do something about it...

This week we will be looking at the QNAP TS-251.

WTF is this you might be thinking?! The TS-251 high performance provides a high performance & high capacity storage solution for SOHO & home, workgroup, and SMB users. Sounds complicated? It's really not, it is just a storage device.

Not any old storage device though. The QNAP TS-251 is a powerful NAS (Network Attached Storage) with a vast array of features, such as on-the-fly media transcoding and the ability to run multiple virtual machines in addition to the usual file sharing and backup services we expect from all NAS devices.

High performance The Ts-251 is a powerful home NAS with supreme value and phenomenal performance to deliver up to 220 MB/s read and write speeds. It can also automatically increase the processor's clock rate from 2.41GHz to 2.58GHz when needed for CPU-intensive tasks. The TS-251’s fast encryption and decryption performance provides transfer speeds of up to 68MB/s with AES-256 bit volume encryption, boosting system performance & security while ensuring the safety of sensitive personal data stored in the TS-251. When installed with the latest dual-band 2.4GHz/5GHz 802.11ac Wi-Fi network card, the TS-251 can offer remarkably high speeds for transferring large amount of files and streaming bandwidth-consuming multimedia.]

QTS - Simple and efficient Thanks to the intuitive user interface of QTS, system operations of the TS-251 are smooth and handy. Its intelligent desktop allows you to find desired functions quickly, create desktop shortcuts or group shortcuts, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater operating efficiency.

Easily build your personal cloud and access anywhere QNAP’s myQNAPcloud provides an always-connected infrastructure for business and home users to build their private or personal cloud with ease. Through any web browser or the free mobile app the TS-251 becomes your personal cloud so you are always connected to your data. Take advantage of the myQNAPcloud service, which allows you to remotely access your TS-251 wherever you are. Instantly stream or share your multimedia contents and share them with your friends.

Real-time & offline HD video transcoding The TS-251 delivers superior real-time Full HD video transcoding to convert your videos to formats that can be smoothly played on PCs, mobile devices and Smart TVs. It allows for up to 5 devices to simultaneously view different videos stored on the TS-251 with on-the-fly hardware accelerated transcoding. The TS-251 allows you to enjoy instant videos on multiple devices - even those that lack computing power or have limited file format support - without the need for complicated and time-consuming file conversion.

With the benefit of offline transcoding, if you can only connect to an Internet connection with limited/restricted bandwidth, you can still enjoy smooth videos by selecting a pre-rendered lower resolution to play the videos via File Station, Video Station, or the Qfile app for iOS & Android without affecting the TS-251’s performance running other applications. This also allows more people to play videos via streaming. The TS-251 also allows you to set a dedicated folder for automatic video transcoding.

Enjoy Full HD videos with HD Station via HDMI QNAP HD Station integrates the powerful Kodi media player and web browser. With HDMI 1.4a connectivity, you can connect the TS-251 to a HDTV to enjoy your rich multimedia content on the big screen. The splendid user interface and support for 7.1 channel surround sound audio passthrough* bring smooth playback of Full HD videos providing a quality home theater experience**. You can also turn your mobile devices into remote controls by installing the Qremote app or use QNAP RM-IR002 remote control and MCE remote controls via the built-in IR receiver of the TS-251 for convenient & easy control of the HD Station.

This is currently available on our website too for only £485.29!
