THE TS-453BMINI

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

qnap ts453bmini 8g 7tJust like its predecessor the glossy housing of the TS-453Bmini weighs 2kg and measures just 200mm in height, 210mm in depth and 151mm in width.

 

 


At the top end of the fascia we find the IR sensor, power LED, drive activity LEDs, LAN activity LED, USB activity LED and the Skyline blue LED indicator.

 

 

The power on/off switch, one-touch backup button and a USB 3.0 port are placed on the lower end of the fascia.

 

 

You can quickly start the installation of the unit just by scanning the 2D barcode found on the left side of the enclosure as seen above.

 

 

The rest is all gathered at the rear of the enclosure so here we find the DC in port, two USB 3.0 ports, reset button, two RJ45 LAN ports, two USB 3.0 ports and the HDMI v1.4a port.

 

 

Mounting the drives is very easy since the top cover is kept in place via 4 small magnets.

 

 

Quality wise these may not be made out of aluminum like we've seen in the past in other models by QNAP but they are very sturdy.

 

 

Turning the unit over we see 4 large rubber feet.

 

 

If you get the 4GB version you can add more memory through this compartment (our sample came with two 4GB modules - that's also the maximun supported).

 

 

The Skyline power LED is once again a nice touch.
