Network-Attached Storage (NAS) has become increasingly popular in home environments, but normal NAS are mostly available in heavy and sometimes unwieldy boxes that are too big & noisy for being an integral part of a digital lifestyle and living room. With the HS-251, QNAP delivers a silent & stylish NAS that fits alongside HDTVs, cable boxes and game consoles. With HDMI output and powered by an Intel® Dual-Core Processor, the HS-251 brings the NAS fully into the living room by providing the power, connectivity and apps for users to enjoy a brilliant entertainment & centralized storage solution.

The HS-251 provides HDMI output that allows users to connect to an HDTV or Hi-Fi amplifier and to use the HD Station to enjoy rich multimedia content with the best audiovisual experience. The HD Station features a powerful XBMC-based home multimedia player that enables users to enjoy the video, music and photo collections stored on their HS-251, watch YouTube and surf the web with the Qremote mobile app or MCE-compatible remotes and wireless keyboard & mice. The HD Station turns the HS-251 into a total home entertainment experience.

With on-the-fly and offline Full HD video transcoding capabilities, the HS-251 is the best companion for home entertainment. The HS-251 can flexibly convert videos into formats that can be played smoothly on PCs, mobile devices and smart TVs, as well as allowing multiple devices to simultaneously watch different videos. Users can enjoy high quality videos by selecting a suitable resolution via File Station, Video Station, or the iOS® & Android™ Qfile app even when in remote sites with limited/restricted Internet access.

Powered by QNAP’s QTS 4.1 operating system, the HS-251 is easy to set up, manage and for everyday use. With its familiar user interface, enjoying multimedia, organizing & backing up files, and syncing & sharing to other devices is easy with no learning process required.
