Dude, seriously. We get it. You don't like Qnap but it's a decent deal and this is a forum for deals not for your beef with a particular company. Plus the fact that you need to know his box's name to hack it seriously downplays your threat.
Dude ... the settings are so simplfied, even the kids can do it. Besides,tThe NAS can open the ports for you.But if you would rather store all your data on someone elses computer, then ..good luck.
If only they would come up with some kind of search engine to find answers to simple questions! Well until then, try this out for the 451+ vs 453 Pro:

http://www.anandtech.com/show/974...nas-review

TS-453 Pro and the TS-451+ are listed below:

3x USB 3.0 ports on the TS-453 Pro vs. 2x USB 3.0 ports on the TS-451+
4x GbE LAN ports on the TS-453 Pro vs. 2x GbE LAN ports on the TS-451+
No LCD display / local hands-on control on the TS-451+
Internal 250W PSU in the TS-453 Pro vs. External 90W power brick in the TS-451+
IR remote controller (MCE compatible) included in the TS-451+, optional with the TS-453 Pro
Industrial design differences in the chassis and drive trays

Has anyone seen a comparison between the 451+ and the 453? I know the 451+ comes with a media remote and the different plastic housing/trays but are there significant power/capability differences between them beyond that?

Also for the VMs -- they make it sound like you can just run Windows right away, but I assume you'd have to own an installation disc and key for the OS you want to virtualize, right?

I'm a Synology fan myself, having owned one for years, but these types of NAS are not for running vm's. Media storage, apps, etc are all fine and dandy, but vm's use host memory, which these don't have much to begin with.

I did see the upper model can handle 8 gigs though, so perhaps it's possible, but a dedicated machine with some decent hardware behind it is much better for running your virtualization layer plus vm's.

oh, and yes, you still need proper licenses for your vm's (Windows).

an advice from me. dont buy these shit if u dont know what ur doing. trust me. u dont know how all ur personal stuff may be available for the rest of the world to see. their settings r confusing. especially the default multimedia folder permissions. i would trust google microsoft or amazon to keep my personal files. do you trust the little box from outside hackers? i am sure its much easier for them to hack this box than any big corp servers. go to theit myqnapcloud website and search for any name u can think of. u will be suprise how open it is by knowing the box name. sometimes u even see the whole family mutimedia folder in plain view. if u cant open the port and use their qnapcloud all ur data will go through and be recorded on their korean server. so its even worse than google or amazon.

I believe TS 451+ has a quad core cpu vs dual core Celeron on TS 451. Handles on the fly transcoding better. They can also be upgraded to 16gb ram.

whats ur box name dude? their multimedia default settings are shared to everyone in the family. even their iOS qphoto app didnt work for almost a year. they just released the new version for iOS but its still half baked. their supports are horrible, their mobile apps are confusing. go to their support forums, you can see most of the problems are un answered and noone got the solution for it. they have not fixed their photo station false announcement for months. u can update it and it will ask u to update again on the next restart.

again, if u think ur box is safe, give us ur box name. i can tell what i can pull from it. do u trust this box from hackers or u trust multi billion data server company to guard ur personal data for you.

I almost pulled the trigger on the TS-451+ a month ago. Then they released the HS-251+ silent model https://www.qnap.com/i/useng/prod...php?II=197 and now I'm rethinking my whole setup.
