Upgrade your NAS to 2.5GbE networks
The TS-253D comes with two 2.5GbE RJ45 LAN ports that allow you to use existing CAT5e cables to upgrade network speeds from 1 Gigabit to 2.5 Gigabit. The dual 2.5GbE ports also support Port Trunking for up to 5 Gbps! By using QNAP’s N-BASET/Multi-Gig USB 3.2 Gen 1 to 5GbE adapter (Model name QNA-UC5G1T) or 5GbE PCIe expansion card (Model name QXG-5G1T-111C), your laptop or desktop computer can easily connect to 2.5GbE networks with the TS-253D to benefit from higher network speeds.
Satisfies bandwidth-demanding applications such as virtual machines and containers.
Boosts transfer speeds to improve smooth 4K video streaming and display.
Mount an iSCSI LUN from the TS-253D to your computer to store your vast game collections.
Transform your network with a wallet-friendly 2.5GbE switch
Upgrading your network shouldn’t break the bank, and 2.5GbE connectivity provides immediately noticeable improvements compared to standard 1GbE. The QSW-1105-5T is an unmanaged switch with five 2.5GbE ports (backwards compatible with 1G/100M) and supports CAT5e cables to connect multiple computers and NAS. The QSW-1105-5T is energy-saving, low-noise, plug-and-use, and supports loop detection and blocking to provide a simple and effective high-speed network environment.
One 2.5GbE is better than two 1GbE for increasing HBS backup efficiency
With a single 2.5GbE connection, no complex link aggregation settings are required for speeds up to 312.5MB/s – easily beating a paired 1GbE connection. The TS-253D has two 2.5GbE ports, further doubling performance and increasing efficiency for versatile tasks.
Hybrid Backup Sync (HBS) consolidates backup and synchronization functions for easily transferring data from the TS-253D to local, remote and cloud storage spaces. HBS also supports QuDedup technology which removes duplicated data at the source, further accelerating backup and restoration tasks over 2.5GbE connections.
Ultimate visual experience with 4K HDMI display and real-time video transcoding
The TS-253D has an HDMI 2.0 port that supports 4K (4096 x 2160) 60Hz output, allowing you to directly view multimedia content saved on the NAS on a bigger screen. The support of high-quality 4K video transcoding enables the NAS to convert videos to universal file formats that can be smoothly played on multiple devices. The TS-253D also can stream videos through DLNA®, Chromecast™, and more to satisfy versatile multimedia application needs. The QNAP RM-IR004 remote control (sold separately) can be configured using QButton to customize individual button actions, providing a more user-friendly NAS experience.
Note: The TS-253D’s hardware provides hardware decoding, encoding, and transcoding capabilities. However, playback quality may vary due to factors including playback software, file formats, system usage, and available bandwidth.
