Product Description
Manufacturer's Description
More and more people are using NAS as a substitution for PC/ server to save their digital files, because of its advantages, such as small size, easy deployment, easy setup and lower power consumption. QNAP TS-210 Turbo NAS is the most economic two-bay storage solution especially designed for entry-level home and SOHO users who are eager for a NAS of powerful features, excellent appearance, low power consumption, and high reliability.

Adopting Marvell 800 MHz CPU and 256MB DDRII RAM, the power consumption of the TS-210 Turbo NAS in operation is only 14W which is much less than that of a PC server. Industry-leading features are also provided, e.g. built-in iSCSI target service, policy-based unauthorized IP blocking, SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol), remote replication, and two IP cameras (optional purchase) for network surveillance.

The TS-210 Turbo NAS is not only an ideal storage server but also a multimedia station to enhance your home entertainment experience. The built-in UPnP/ DLNA media server (with TwonkyMedia enabled) of the Turbo NAS supports gaming consoles for media playing and the NAS works well with NFS-supported High-Definition (HD) digital media players. Moreover, the AJAX web interface is provided for you to manage the applications of the Turbo NAS in a more intuitive way.

Download Qnap’s “QMobile” App and stream music, digital pictures, and videos from their QNAP NAS servers and play directly on their Android handsets or Tablets from anywhere. So long as you have Internet access, you can play all the contents on the NAS remotely, just like having a media centre in your pocket!
Product Description
More and more people are turning to network attached storage (NAS) as an alternative for PC-based servers to store their digital contents due to native NAS advantages such as low power consumption; small size; and easy installation/setup. The QNAP TS-210 Turbo NAS is the most economic two-drive storage solution for Prosumers and SOHO users who want a NAS with compelling features; solid performance; low power consumption and high reliability.

Incorporating a Marvell 800 MHz CPU and 256MB DDRII RAM; the power consumption of the TS-210 Turbo NAS in operation is only 14W which is much less than that of a PC. The TS-210 offers features more often found in much higher end NAS servers; including built-in iSCSI target service; policy-based unauthorized IP blocking; SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol); remote replication; a Gigabit LAN port; and 3 USB ports (the front USB port includes an auto-copy feature).

The TS-210 Turbo NAS is not only an ideal storage server but also a multimedia station to enhance your home entertainment experience. The built-in UPnP/ DLNA media server (with TwonkyMedia enabled) of the Turbo NAS supports gaming consoles for media playing and the NAS works well with NFS-supported High-Definition (HD) digital media players. Also; the TS-210s AJAX-based NAS management software utilizes a web interface that allows intuitive management of all the Turbo NAS features.

Nice find voted hot!

I can't recommend QNAP NAS boxes enough - I'm onto my second one now after I upgraded from my original TS-109 to the TS-219P+ when I needed the extra bay. I gave my 109 to my brother who's been more than pleased with it. At this price it's a steal.

A bit old now, but still a good deal.

oh, yeah , quikly ran out of stock

If you know what you doing. The hp microserver better value. Cashback still on. But not as easy out of box.

Heated and ordered. Been looking forna NAS drive and this seems perfect

Just to clarify, this comes with 2x1TB drives. This will give you 2TB of storage with no fault tollerance or 1TB with RAID 1.

Whats the advantages of this over a Netgear ReadyNAS Duo? Worthwhile upgrading?

Seems like a great deal!

Ordered. I can wait.

Thanks OP.

Just to clarify, does this come with 2 x 1tb drives or do you have to buy them separately?

Well if it doesn't then it's very misleading!

Just that some I've seen don't have HDD with them and you have to buy them separately!

Just what I needed.

Well if you look at the RRP it suggest the drives are included. Also if you google the full title as displayed you'll find other places using the same product title that state the drives come with it.

Is this the same drive but without the 2tb drive? amazon.co.uk/QNA…s_0

It's ready to ship now but I'm wIlling to wait for the 2tb drive and pay a bit extra cash

I've been running a TS-209 for just over three years. It's been great, although the external psu died recently, a known issue with that generation of QNAP 'home' NAS. Bought a replacement from Amazon, back up and running fine, no data loss. It is noisy though, both the internal fan and my choice of drives (Seagate Barracuda), so hopfully the TS-210 is quieter and with a better PSU.

That said, the features are immense, and QNAP are very consistent with new firmware builds. The support forum is excellent too. Can''t go wrong at this price, even without the HDDs included. Hotted.

not a bad price but for anyone who doestn mind getting there hands a little dirty, the HP micor server is much better and more versatile and after cash back can have a way better system for not much more.

Brilliant NAS servers, got one of these about a year ago, still running well with no faults (except when I had a power cut, the boot files got corrupted - easy to recover though).

I paid over £200 for mine with drives back then, so this is a bargain.

These are really nice (my parents have one) I've got a Synology but if i was going to buy another i'd max it out from the start with a 2 x 2tb RAID

But unfortunately uses twice the amount of power (cost of bl00dy electric these days)

The interface on QNAP and synology NASs are excellent and Synology are always introducing new features. I haven't used a WD NAS but i suspect they're not as feature rich although iI'm sure this is reflected in the price.

I'm looking for a server for my Squeezebox receivers. Would it be easy to set that up with one of these and would the squeezebox server work just on this machine - i.e. without a pc being on all the time?

I know i should get one of these NAS thingy's but i don't really understand why. Can someone tell me why i shoud get one?? I currently backup all my data onto a 500gb usb attached portable drive, is this not ok?

Does the work similarly to the drobo?

There is no particular advantage to backing up your stuff to a NAS drive rather than what you are doing. The way I use it is that my NAS drive is my main storage, I backup what is important from that to my internal PC drives. Then I can share what is on my NAS drive with the network (Sonos, other PC, friends etc) at all times even when the PC is off.

Yes
It can run SqueezeBox Server (SlimServer on Turbo Station)

I've taken the plunge and ordered, purely bases on postive commetns and it seems a great price compared to elsewhere and the fact that the same thing is on amazon without the 2tb drive for £142.97

So am i right in saying you can have it as a single 2TB backup (all be it two 1TB drives) or has a RAID setup with 1TB backed up

That's a perfectly reasonable way to do things. I have a MacBook so went for a synology NAS (very similar to the Qnap) as it supports timemachine so it backs up automatically and it also supports RAID so you can for example have two hard disks mirroring each other so if one fails in theory it shouldn't matter. I also use mine to stream movies to Xbox and music to my iPhone and soundbridge.

My understanding is I can have my laptop automatically backup to the NAS over the air, so the manual part of remembering and getting round to do it can be removed and automated. Thats one of the features amongst other things. Such as access to your files when away from home, or from other devices such as ipad/iphone/android and web browsers

This is a bargain. I have the TS-110 which does everything I need (except RAID), with low power consumption.

This is faster than the WD and can do more. You need to decide what you want to do and how much of the extra features of the QNAP you might get into later! If you just want network file sharing the WD or similar priced unit will do fine. Not only features but speed are important. When you get into adding a few packages then the NAS drive's processor has some work to do! This is why QNAP also make the faster TS212 which is worth thinking about if you download from Usenet.

Just to give some idea of the CPU power needed, say for example with the SABnzbd package installed it will deal with PAR, & un-RAR files while your PC is off automatically, be serving your website, uploading files to friends all at the same time. I guess this is where the budget models would get bogged down!

Thanks, I am quite techy and very computer literate but ive had no exposure to NAS in the past. You mean faster in terms of data transfer to and from? what are a few example packages, and what do they do? Thanks

Click the blue word "packages" in my previous post!

No, some have faster CPU's, the data transfer is the same. TS210 will be fine, you will love it!

Readynas NAS are in a different league (for the other poster) readynas have such good support and user network they are hard to ignore.
