This latest addition to the QNAP family is quite a surprising NAS solution. With the TS-451's intended audience being the SOHO / home user marketplace, I am simply taken back by the shear amount of power this little white box has. During testing, I had the opportunity to run through and use many of the features QNAP is focusing on with this release, and I am really impressed by things like Virtualization Station.
As you have seen, we were able to setup a Windows 8 VM, which I still use on a daily basis. The Windows 8 VM allows me to go about my activities on my MacBook Pro without having to install boot camp, and subsequently partitioning my SSD for another OS.
Storage performance for the TS-451 was another area the TS-451 shined. While I have already run the tests several times, it makes me want to go back a few more times, and recheck the comparable units in this review. With that being said, the sequential performance, along with the mixed workloads in RAID 5, were outstanding. On another note, if you take a look at the chart above us, you will notice the TS-451 uses very little power, even with drives installed.
Overall, this unit is certainly a NAS the typical home user would enjoy. It encompasses what we have been wanting for years, and it has finally been delivered in a small, lightweight box labeled TS-451.
