QNAP Systems, today launched the snapshot-ready, intelligent, and budget-friendly TS-130. Adorned with a refreshing baby blue hue, the TS-130 is the ideal home NAS, providing centralized storage, backup, multimedia management, and sharing. The contents of a TS-130 are securely protected using Snapshots, a powerful backup feature which is uncommon in Home NAS of this price range. Coupled with a wide range of feature-rich and multimedia apps, the TS-130 can build smarter homes and a personal cloud for greater productivity and boundless entertainment.

The TS-130 uses a Realtek RTD1295 quad-core 1.4 GHz processor with built-in 1 GB DDR4 RAM for running various personal and home NAS applications. A Gigabit Ethernet port and SATA 6 Gbps drive support provides exceptional performance for home usage, while AES-256 encryption support allows users to secure their data without impacting system performance. With an energy-efficient processor and smart cooling, the TS-130 provides dependable performance without any distracting noises or unexpected utility bills. Users unfamiliar with installing a NAS can also take advantage of the TS-130's simple toolless design, where the system can be set up easily and without even needing a screwdriver.





The TS-130 uses QNAP's intelligent app-driven QTS operating system that provides comprehensive file storage, sharing, backup, synchronization, and data protection. Users can regularly back up Windows or macOS data to the TS-130 for centralized management and file sharing, while utilizing the Hybrid Backup Sync app to back up NAS data to the cloud. The ability to create multiple snapshot versions is key for protecting data against ransomware, and for quickly restoring data to previously-recorded states. Additional features include Qsync for synchronizing files across multiple devices (such as NAS, mobile devices, computers), and companion mobile apps that enable remote NAS access to increase productivity at work and home.

By supporting Plex, TS-130 users can stream media files to mobile devices, DLNA devices, and TVs using common media streaming devices including Roku, Apple TV (via Qmedia), Google Chromecast, and Amazon Fire TV. Combined with its companion app QuMagie Mobile, users can easily browse NAS photos anytime anywhere.

Key specifications

TS-130: 1-bay tower model; Realtek RTD1295 quad-core 1.4 GHz processor, 1 GB DDR4 RAM; supports 3.5-inch/2.5-inch SATA 6 Gbps HDD/SSD; 1x RJ45 Gigabit port, 1x USB 3.0 port, 1x USB 2.0 port; 1x 5 cm quiet fan

The QNAP TS-130 is now available for 129 USD.

I've not dabbled in home SANs, it seems to be QNAP and Synology or take your chances.

Any pros/cons to either? QNAP 2.5G switches have let me down before but so have Realtek 2.5G NICs so I'm not going to hold that against QNAP specificially and my sample size of three isn't really enough to be meaningful data.
Never touched Synology, Their cheap stuff seems overpriced and under-speced, and if I want their good stuff I'm an enterprise datacenter manager, I have better alternatives simply lying around.

I'm interested in simplifying media/backups for family & friends. The safer and dumber it is the better....

1 slot is perfectly fine for me to watch films and send stuff from one PC to another. I'm more surprised about the colour.
I can do that with an external USB 3.0 box that I bought on ebay for $30. Why send $129 on this.

This should not exist... enclosures do this and you can usb it to a router. It should have a min 2 slot, most of the time people buy these for backups and protected storage like raids - mirror etc.

How does that work without an attached computer on, that's also burning energy?

They work fine for most home users that are just getting started in the NAS area. Plus they have USB ports if you want to connect more drives.

Do you think these NAS devices don't use any energy?

yea sure but why not skip this thing and just use USB ports off a router or wherever. Given what these are typically used for 2+ slots are more desirable where raid configs are needed.

Not everyone has a router that has a USB port, and usually using the router as a NAS is a pretty awful experience.

I think his point is that they use <10W including the disk. Having a PC on instead is going to be 50W+ even at idle for most builds, and considerably more for others.

Nope, my 10700K build idles at less than 25w and that is with a 10Gb NIC and my 2400G Windows server idles at under 10w.
