Product Information

Full Description


Compact, near-silent, and versatile, the 4-bay M.2 SSD NASbook TBS-453A is ideal for office meetings and multimedia applications. Featuring a powerful processor, a built-in 4-port network switch, and using up to 4 M.2 SSDs for storage, the TBS-453A not only provides full-fledged NAS functions with RAID protection, but also can act as a switch and share network access with multiple users regardless of being powered on or off. Coupled with its dual HDMI output and 4K H.264 video display & transcoding abilities, the TBS-453A can easily be carried to meetings to present stored files and quality multimedia content.

  • Built-in 4-port LAN switch, combined with advanced virtual switch functionality for maximized network flexibility
  • Dual HDMI output with duplicated and extended desktop options
  • Use the TBS-453A as a PC with exclusive QvPC technology and 4K (H.264) support
  • Store, backup, and share files with snapshots and versioning
  • Handy, quiet and compact with four M.2 SSDs
    Designed with a "NASbook" concept, the TBS-453A uses a thin, B5-sized case to make it easy to setup anywhere in the office. The TBS-453A's usage of M.2 SSDs allows it to be significantly smaller and quieter. The RAM and M.2 SSDs are also easily accessible for installation and upgrading by removing the rubber pads and thumb screws on the bottom of the TBS-453A.
  • Optimal performance with CPU, AES-NI hardware-accelerated encryption, and M.2 SSDs
    The TBS-453A is powered by a powerful processor that can automatically burst up to 2.08GHz when performing CPU-intensive tasks. The built-in 2 Gigabit LAN ports can deliver up to 112MB/s throughput independently for optimizing mission-critical tasks. The TBS-453A features AES-NI hardware-accelerated encryption. With AES 256-bit encryption for full NAS volumes, the built-in 2 Gigabit LAN ports can deliver up to 109MB/s throughput independently.
  • Built-in four-port LAN switch for maximized network flexibility
    The TBS-453A includes additional hardware-based LAN switch ports with network switch mode and private network mode settings, allowing you to easily build a flexible network environment. In the default switch mode, users can simply use the TBS-453A's network switch functionality to share the Internet and NAS resources at the same time. While in the private network configuration, users can create a closed network, allowing them to create secure environments for activities such as creating a secure surveillance recording with IP cameras. The TBS-453A's network design greatly boosts collaboration and productivity at work as it ensures always-on Internet connectivity. Business meeting attendees, for example, could benefit from the network accessibility to access files stored on the TBS-453A or to search for information online during the meeting.
  • Dual HDMI output - switch between "duplicated" or "extended" desktop configurations
    The TBS-453A supports QNAP's exclusive QvPC technology and comes with dual HDMI output, enabling you to use the NAS as a PC with a keyboard, mouse and HDMI monitors. You can configure the displayed content on the two monitors in either a "duplicated" or "extended" desktop configuration. Duplicating will display the same content on both displays, and extended allows users to display applications over two displays for improved multitasking convenience and productivity.
  • Storage for hosting virtual machines and containerized applications
    Virtualization Station allows you to host virtual machines (VM) on the TBS-453A and access them via a web browser or VNC. Virtualization Station supports multiple operating systems, fast VM creation, VM backup & restoration, VM import/export, snapshot, and device management for centrally managing VM. Virtualization Station allows the TBS-453A and VMs to share the same LAN port. No longer constrained by physical network performance, high-speed Virtual Switches greatly increases data transfer between VMs as well as between VMs and NAS through the internal interface. The TBS-453A also features the game-changing container technology for server virtualization with QNAP Container Station. It exclusively integrates LXC and Docker lightweight virtualization technologies, allowing you to operate multiple isolated Linux systems on the TBS-453A as well as download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry.
  • Comprehensive data recovery with Snapshot, RTRR, and more
    The TBS-453A offers various data recovery options. The web-based snapshot tool helps easily backup and restore data on the TBS-453A back to any point of time. You can take up to 1024 snapshots for both volumes and LUN, efficiently replicate volume/LUN snapshots via Snapshot Replica to remote servers by copying only the changes made, and quickly clone a volume /LUN snapshot as a local volume without interrupting the current system operation. Windows users can also directly restore files from snapshots with the Previous Versions feature, saving time and effort without requiring IT support. RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) supports real-time or scheduled data backup to a remote QNAP NAS or FTP server and synchronizes files between remote and local folders. You can enjoy backup versioning to preserve a certain amount of versions, with options of simple versioning to schedule how many versions should be retained and for how long, or smart versioning with a rotation scheme that automatically replaces earlier backup versions. The TBS-453A also supports the rsync protocol to back up data to another remote server on a scheduled basis.
  • Cross-platform file sharing, centralized data storage
    The TBS-453A supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, Linux /UNIX networks. Data, logs and ISO images of CDs and DVDs can be centrally stored on the TBS-453A and protected by an integrated antivirus solution. The Windows AD and LDAP services enable system administrators to configure user permissions by using an existing Windows AD server, LDAP server or built-in LDAP service. The TBS-453A supports SAMBA v4 and can act as a Windows domain controller to manage privilege settings.
  • Enhance productivity with multiple USB 3.0 ports
    Direct-attached Storage (DAS) devices such as USB hard drives are incredibly convenient in portability, but they fall short in file sharing and functionality and can only be connected to one server or PC at one time. By connecting a DAS to the TBS-453A you can easily share its content with other users without having to unplug and move it around. The USB ports on the TBS-453A also support devices such as UPS and printers for greater all-round functionality.
  • LED indicators with adjustable brightness controls
    With adjustable 20-stage brightness controls for LED indicators, the TBS-453A provides flexible LED brightness options. Based on the surrounding environment, you can adjust the brightness of all system indicators and also schedule the system to automatically dim the LEDs at certain times when needed.

Out of stock


Well, this is disappointing - this product has sold out. Fear not though, more may be on order or we may be able to source it for you.

Are we out on price?

We check our prices daily against a wide range of competitors to try to bring you the best deal. However, if you've spotted a better price offered by one of our competitors, please let us know and we'll do our very best to match it.

Price Match Challenge

Is the advertised price & availability genuine?

The IT sector is littered with companies who don't hold stock. Their websites advertise products that are sourced from third party suppliers. Pricing and availability data on such sites is typically retrieved from files or feeds which are often not refreshed regularly enough. The result? Cancelled orders, long lead times and disgruntled customers.

King of Servers is a major stockholder with full transparency into our stockholding and pricing. Our website is refreshed on a 15-minute cycle 24/7 so the pricing and availability you see online is both accurate and reliable.

We recommend you double check a cheaper price elsewhere is accurate and based on physical stock that can be shipped immediately before placing your order.

Do they really have the product in stock?

We show true stock counts on our website, not woolly messages like ‘in stock' or ‘available to order'. Stock levels are updated every 15 minutes 24/7 so you can see exactly how many units we have sat in our warehouse available for immediate despatch.

And speaking of shipping, did you know we offer same day deliveries? You can choose this or other timed services during checkout on our website or contact our sales team for a quote. Handy when you need the goods in a hurry!

Do they specify product condition?

Most web stores fail to specify the stock condition of the products they advertise for sale. It seems reasonable to assume that all products are brand new, unused units supplied in the sealed, original manufacturer packaging and protected by the full warranty but this isn't always the case.

A heavily discounted price can be a sign that the product in question may be a used or refurbished unit. Open/damaged box and ‘ex demo' units are also rife in the marketplace and warranty cover on such goods will be variable so it's wise to check what you're getting before committing to any purchase.

King of Servers displays the product condition on all our product pages. As well as detailing what the condition means, we specify the level of warranty condition allowing you to make an informed buying decision.

Ensure you compare like for like when shopping around for prices online.

Is the product covered by warranty?

All brand new products come with a full manufacturer warranty, right? Not always; it depends where the products were sourced from. You may have heard of the grey market or parallel imports? Manufacturers often stipulate the geographical regions in which their products are designated for sale. Unscrupulous suppliers seek to source goods from outside of these regions at cheaper costs which they pass on via cheaper prices. The downside is that the manufacturer might not honour the warranty in the event of a support call. Grey kit does not qualify for warranty support and if it fails, you could be significantly out of pocket.

All products offered for sale at King of Servers are sourced from legitimate channels and are covered by warranty. For added peace of mind, we can supply serial numbers up front which can be validated on the manufacturer's website to ensure warranty cover is in place prior to purchase.

Ask any potential supplier if they can supply serial numbers ahead of purchase. Any legitimate stockholder who has sourced the goods from the proper channels should be able and happy to do so.

Is the competitor trustworthy?

Look beyond the price and establish whether the company behind the product is a bona fide organisation that you can return to should you encounter issues down the line. This is particularly important if you've never heard of them before. It's relatively easy to set up a web shop nowadays which makes it difficult to differentiate between a one-man band operating out of a home office and a well-established, reputable bricks and mortar business. Sales T&Cs, returns policy and aftercare service are probably important areas for you to consider.
