With the TS-410E, QNAP offers a new fanless NAS network storage device that does not require any active cooling and therefore, no associated noise pollution. The new 2.5GbE NAS can be connected to an external display using HDMI.
With the TS-410, QNAP has launched a new fanless NAS system that is particularly suitable for use in environments where quiet running is important. In this way, the network storage is passively cooled. The Intel Celeron J6412 is used as the processor, which has four cores without hyperthreading support and a maximum boost clock rate of 2.6 GHz.
The QNAP TS-410E desktop NAS system, which is only 60 x 180 x 254 millimeters in size, is limited in terms of RAM, so it cannot be upgraded as is usually the case with QNAP devices. The main memory measures 8GB, and the built-in 4GB flash memory accommodates the operating system. Up to four hard drives can be installed, although only 2.5-inch data carriers are supported. The compatibility should only be given to SSDs, which should benefit the performance and the volume, but increases the price.
Two Ethernet ports with a speed of 2.5 GBit/s are available for connection to a network. Four USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports can be found directly on the device, which should also allow the installation of a 5 GBit/s network card. High-resolution images can also be output via the HDMI 1.4b output – the refresh rate at a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels is limited to 30 Hz.
In addition to extensive options for data backup, the range of functions also includes the control of IP cameras. By connecting the TS-410E to an HDMI display, you can operate virtual machines from Virtualization Station or Linux Station, or directly watch multimedia content saved on the NAS.
