With just 230mm in length, 165mm in depth and 25mm in height the 760g heavy TBS-453A is among the lightest NAS in the market today.

To showcase its compact size we placed the TBS-453A right next to a compact 8-port switch.

At the front we see the USB one touch copy button, two USB 3.0 ports, SD card slot, volume control and the on/off power button.

A USB 2.0 port is placed on the right side of the enclosure right next to a perforated section (the built-in speaker is placed behind it).
