Qnap Systems, Inc. unveiled the TS-453BT3, a 4-bay NAS that combines high-speed Thunderbolt 3 connectivity with a pre-installed QM2 PCIe card, providing dual M.2 SATA SSD slots and 10GbE connectivity.

Along with its sleek OLED display and 4K HDMI output, the TS-453BT3 provides SMBs, workgroups and media professionals with a feature-rich and performance storage solution.

The TS-453BT3 is powered by an Celeron J3455 quad-core 1.5GHz processor (burst up to 2.3GHz) with dual-channel 8GB DDR3L RAM. The pre-installed QM2 card provides SSD caching and 10GbE connectivity, helping to provide
up to 683MB/s read speeds. It also includes a free RM-IR004 remote control that can be coupled with the QButton app to provide one-touch functionality for everyday operations.

Featuring two Thunderbolt 3 ports that deliver up to 514MB/s read speeds, the TS-453BT3 provides an collaborative 4K media editing platform for Mac and Windows users, allowing sharing of large media files to improve productivity. It also provides a Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet (T2E) converter, allowing computers without Ethernet ports (such as MacBook Pro) to access 10GbE network resources over a Thunderbolt connection. The TS-453BT3 supports block-based snapshots, allowing users to backup and restore the NAS to a previous state in the event of an unexpected NAS failure or when struck by a ransomware attack.

"In the 4K era, media professionals often face the challenges of slow connections and insufficient storage capacity. The Qnap TS-453BT3 tackles these problems with Thunderbolt 3 and 10GbE connectivity, M.2 SSD caching, and expandable storage, helping users to streamline production workflows while providing sufficient storage space for creative works," said Jason Hsu, product manager, Qnap.
