Had this on price alert from Camel Camel Camel, lowest I’ve seen it before.

Good reviews on Amazon, seems to be a good all round NAS solution by a reputable manufacturer.

The TS-251B combines secure data storage and multimedia entertainment into one device. Featuring a PCIe slot, the TS-251B is QNAP’s first home/SOHO NAS that allows you to flexibly extend its functionality and potential applications. You can install a QNAP QM2 card to provide M.2 SSD caching/10GbE connectivity and use with Qtier auto-tiering storage to enhance overall system performance; or install a wireless network card (such as theQNAP QWA-AC2600) to turn the TS-251B into a wireless access point and to wirelessly stream your multimedia throughout your home. The TS-251B supports dual-channel H.264 hardware decoding and transcoding, allowing you to enjoy watching NAS media files smoothly across various devices.

The PCIe port supports installing a 10GbE network card, a QM2 dual-port M.2 SSD/10GbE card, a USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps) card, or a wireless network card.


4K media playback and online transcoding; cross-device multimedia viewing via HDMI output or streaming applications.


Snapshots fully record the system status and data. If files are accidentally deleted or modified, you can quickly restore the previously-recorded data.


Hybrid Backup Sync consolidates backup and sync tasks into a single app, providing multiple layers of data protection.


Remotely access the apps and files on your TS-251B via myQNAPcloud and easily manage and share files.


Supports containerized applications and hosting virtual machines with various operating systems.

Which ones better?



I have both two Synology and three QNAP. You get more hardware with QNAP for the same price point. They both have the same sort of apps, but I find QNAP slicker in operation and less restrictive (for example the QuMagie works across the board, while Synology Moments has features missing for the lower end devices).

So I would pick QNAP on account of my experience with both.

As a quick piece of advice for anyone considering a NAS, absolutely avoid ARM processors for now, go for 80x86 based dual core minimum and at least 2GB (preferably expandable).

Great price for the spec. Also consider Synology DS218+ at this price point.

No real winner to be fair, exactly the problem I am facing.

Synology has better software (subjective), but QNAP has more RAM and advanced options. QNAP is also upgradeable.
Really hard decision

I've never used Qnap so I don't know. My Synology is rock solid though. The specs & functionality look very similar and Qnap has a good reputation. Maybe someone else more knowledgeable will be along in a minute. Just make sure whatever you get supports Docker (i.e. containers) as many cheaper ones don't. The Synology DS218 Play and DS218 do not support Docker.

Really easy and cheap to upgrade the RAM on the Synology DS218+. It cost me £15 on ebay to upgrade mine from 2GB to 6GB.

Ah is the + edition the one with upgradeable ram? I know the 218 standard and play are on-chip. Makes it even harder!
I really cannot decide. Both are the same price really once the RAM upgrade is taken into account, only thing leaning me towards QNAP is the advanced stuff, but i really do like the look of the Synology UI (and device) more. AGJHh

Yes, the Synology model numbers can be quite misleading. The Diskstation user interface is very good. I've put mine to work with Plex media server, Pi-hole and Home Assistant with Motion Eye.

I guess the PCIe port on the Qnap might be useful for some but I would always prefer a wired connection for these.

15 is very cheap what did you go for. I see more ram around 70 quid. Would love to have Synology if i could increase RAM for 15 quid.
