QNAP TBS-h574TX All-Flash NASbook Review

When it comes to eTeknix, our bread and butter is CPUs, GPUs, and motherboards when it comes to the YouTube channel, and the website, that extends to cases, power supplies, coolers and everything in between. Today however sees something slightly different coming in by way of a NAS, but this one is slightly different. Instead of being focussed on pure data storage for media pictures, videos, music, or work documents if you’re more aimed at the SMB side of the market, it’s instead aimed at content creators, and unlike a normal NAS, this is branded as a NASbook and while it may seem small, slim and understated, but when we start talking about the specs, you’ll see that it’s anything but.

With 2.5G and 10GbE as standard, throughput is not going to be an issue, as long as you have a pretty robust system with those connectivity options as standard on your motherboard, or with an add-in card but what about laptop devices for when you’re on the go? Well for starters, you wouldn’t be hauling a typical NAS off on your jolly’s while sipping a margarita at your hotel, but then what we’re looking at today in the form of the TBS-h574TX isn’t your typical NAS, because beyond the fast Ethernet ports, it also comes equipped with Thunderbolt 4 for up to 20 Gbps speeds when you need it most, as well as two USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, giving 10Gbps speeds as well.

What I’m trying to say is that for those of you budding content creators out there, this may just be the device that ticks all of the right boxes, and that’s why I’m so excited about it. Not only are we content creators, so this appeals to us, but when we find a product that will make our day-to-day lives easier and faster, allowing us to do the tasks we do, well it makes it easier for us to write about it because there’s the extra added factor of excitement and trust me, after doing this for well over a decade, writing about something that gets you excited really gets the creative juices going and makes writing it so much easier and with Computex getting closer and closer, I think just from the initial specs, I’ve found another addition to my bag.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
