Note. This takes 2.5" hard drives. Not normal desktop size 3.5"
Edited by: "shinds" 7th Apr 2016
Great price, but I wish it could be a 3.5" ....
Unless you were seriously restricted for space, why wouldn't you get a Xeon T20 instead of this and save some £?
Hot deal for QNAP. Once you have a micro server though....difficult to justify
I'm looking for a solution mainly to use as a medie hub... Something I can save/store all my legally downloaded videos and family photos too, and then access on any to in the house or via iPhone iPad etc

New to nas though, can anyone recommend if this was ideal or a different make model? Or towards the micros ever eg the hp ones that are always on offer (have no idea how to set one up though but they look cool lol)

Short answer: NAS.

Long answer: A NAS would fit the bill 100% and I'd recommend either a QNAP like this or a Synology NAS. HP Microserver will take a little more to setup and from what I've heard it's hit and miss whether they're quiet or not.

I use a Synology DS215j NAS to store my movies and music and happily, without a glitch, stream to my Kodi client and other DLNA/NFS compatible devices.

Switched from a ReadyNAS Duo and it was the best thing I did.

If you want Plug 'n Play with a smaller form factor, go NAS. If you want something you can change OS or do whatever with, then a Microserver. Both have their benefits, you have to cater for your needs and preference.
£375 now
I wonder if some stock is being sold off as these are now 'older models'.

The better 453a and 253a have a higher spec and will perform better at on the fly encoding.

I couldn't agree more, I have the Synology DS413j. Had it for 5 years now and still going strong :-)
Qnap is miles better than synology (synology is like the apple of nas)

Qnap for one has a HDMI port meaning content can be run direct, including VM's, ram is normally upgradeable and basically it does every synology does plus more..

What does QNAP do that is much better than Synology?

​hdmi port, upgradable ram, Intel CPU
Is this the new new one how does this compare to ts 253a
Looks like the largest capacity 2.5" drive it is compatible with is the 2TB Samsung Spinpoint (available cheaper harvested from the Seagate Expansion Portable). Doesn't appear to support the thicker 4TB drives:
