QNAP TS-212P Review

If you are looking for a way to enhance your home cinema system or if you want a storage solution aside from your computer, the QNAP TS-212P is just the thing you need. The device is a NAS storage solution that works well in a wide range of circumstances. Once you’re equipped with it, there’s always a good way to put it to work whenever you transfer more files to the device or if you need to access some of the already sent files.



The QNAP TS-212P’s content can be easily accessed and controlled with the aid of the QTS 4.0 Desktop application. Here, you can navigate through a series of menus and options, giving you access to a quite wide range of features. The same application can be used if you want to install fresh widgets or extensions on your QNAP device. You just have to enter the App Center and there, you will find around 80 apps that can be downloaded and activated.



The private cloud you create with QNAP TS-212P can be accessed from any location: you either need access to a web browser or to a smartphone. The myQNAPcloud service is similar to Dropbox and you can keep files to yourself, while you also have the option to share them with others through this system. Moreover, files can also be synchronized between various locations through the same system. What’s even better is that documents shared with others can be edited in real-time by multiple users.



The QNAP TS-212P relies on a Marvell 6282 CPU with a clock speed of 1.6GHz, and it also features 512MB of RAM memory that cannot be extended, unfortunately. A gigabit port and two USB 3.0 connection ports are available, as well. The most important part of this QNAP device is the HDD interface. You can fit 2 SATA hard drives in order to create your personal cloud.



As you might have noticed, the idea of personal cloud has been emphasized throughout this review. This happens because the QNAP TS-212P is truly a personal environment, because you can put to work a series of data security elements. You can set up access rights and permissions for all the users who initially receive access to the files you share. Moreover, you can whitelist a certain number of IPs, so unauthorized access from other addresses will be prevented. An anti-virus tool has been added into the device so you can always keep threats away, be them malware, Trojans, worms or viruses. The login process relies on a SSH remote process, and your connection is also encrypted with a SSL protocol. When it comes to file transfer, Secure FTP is the thing you need.



The small, white box is an elegant addition to your living room, but it can prove to be much more useful than as a decoration. It can truly revolutionize your household, as it can become a media center from which music could be streamed and videos could be played, whenever you want this to happen.

  • The Good :
    Security features, Private cloud, Multiple apps available in the App Center
  • The Bad :
    Difficult to perform first-time setup, Only two drive bays
Our score:
4 / 5
