I ordered one from B&H for the previous deal of $408 but it's still backordered for who knows how long. So I price matched it at staples for a total price of $425.53 + tax. Ends up being $17 more than the B&H deal but at least I'll get it this year.

Amazon [amazon.com] and Walmart [walmart.com] have it for $449:


Staples price matched it with a 110% guarantee (they give you 10% of the difference $683 vs $449).
Good deal?

Tired of waiting for an 8gb version to go on sale. May have to capitulate.

you should have set up alerts for other models. i posted a deal for a 451 PLUS for only $340, no tax in any state. it only has 2GB of RAM but i was able to pick up an 8GB set of RAM from fleabay for $45. my unit arrived on friday.

453A has more LAN ports, but the 451+ has a faster CPU. worthy trade off i'd say. i was able to playback blu ray quality 4k videos from the 451+, so no issues there either.

I've got a few alert setup, but I guess I missed that one. Appreciate the info on the processor speed. I've been reading that it's a pain to get in there and add memory. Is that as difficult as everyone makes it out to be?

Reg price
Reg price was ~$550 until black friday deal which was frontpage for $409, and is (still) not available/backordered for 2-4 weeks.

Is this more? Yes, slightly if you price match vs Staples.
Are there any better prices? I dont see it.

$449 - Sold out at Best Buy [bestbuy.com]

Here's a comparison of the 453A vs 451+. I was open to either of them.
https://www.qnap.com/en-us/produc...t_overview

451A - Comes with 4GB ram instead of 2gb, 1.6GHz CPU (instead of 2.0GHz), HDMI 4K (instead of just 1080p), has VMWare/Citrix ready, faster read/write (~double), 4 LAN ports (instead of 2), 4 USB3.0 ports (instead of 2).
