All of the best QNAP NAS enclosures provide the user with a ton of easily-accessible network-attached storage (NAS). They’re easy to set up and operate, they provide robust data backup that doesn’t rely on third-party subscriptions, and they’re a great way to keep all your most accessed files in one place. The best NAS enclosures don’t come cheap, at least unless they’re discounted for Cyber Monday. The QNAP TS-253D, a two-bay enclosure with some high-end specs, is currently $80 off the regular price.
If you want to get started with a NAS in your home or office, the TS-253D from QNAP is a great option made more affordable thanks to Cyber Monday savings. It’s powered by a quad-core 2GHz Celeron CPU and 4GB of RAM for smooth operation, allowing up to 800 connections and smooth performance when using QNAP apps. Its two drive bays support 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch SATA drives, whether hard-disk drive (HDD) or solid-state drive (SSD). Check out our collection of PC parts deals if you need to fill those bays.
One of the main selling points of this NAS is its dual 2.5GbE ports that can handle speeds up to about 588MB/s when using both ports together. A single connection sits closer to about 295MB/s, still an excellent pace. If that’s not enough, a PCIe expansion can be used to add a 5GbE or 10GbE card. That same PCIe expansion can be used to add an M.2 SSD for better caching or a Wi-Fi 6 network card for speedy wireless.
Whether you need a NAS to safely back up your files, deliver 4K media to your TV, or hold all your PC games without jamming up your main storage, the QNAP TS-253D is going to be a solid choice. And thanks to Cyber Monday, you can save $80 off the regular price. Don’t wait too long; this is a limited deal for as long as supply lasts.
