QNAP TS-228A 2-bay NAS Review

Rating: 8.0.

Recently we've looked at a number of QNAP NAS units aimed primarily at the SMB end of the market. This time we take a look at a unit at the other end of the spectrum – the entry-level, two bay TS-228A aimed at home users.

The TS-228A is an update to the previous TS-228 with a faster & more capable processor and more modern memory. The TS-288 used a 32-bit 1.1GHz dual cored Realtek RTD1195PN CPU with 1GB of DDR3 memory, whereas the TS-228A uses a Realtek RTD1295 which is a 64-bit quad core CPU clocked at 1.4GHz. The amount of memory in the TS-228A is the same as the previous drive, 1GB, but is now DDR4-2133.
