I decided to buy a TS253A instead as there was a great price available. The fan is nicely quiet but it's the drive noise that makes some sounds. Especially when the drives spin up (which is a bit drive-dependant).Has anyone any idea what the fan noise levels are like?
I had to make that decision and went with the TS253A (£249 at the time) and happy so far. Plus I'm not using its ability to run Ubuntu which is a major difference.In your opinion is this better or worse than the TS 253-4G?
Don't know if it is just me, but i don't see the point of the NAS/media player devices. 99% of the population has blu-ray/dvd players, smart tvs, android boxed, fire/roku tv etc that will let you stream stuff from your regular NAS.
And therein lies the issue - buying/having another spare NAS as least as big as the one you are upgrading in order to do a backup ! ... in my case it's less of an problem as it's only a media NAS for movies/tv shows which I could rip all over again ...
There is a QPKG of v16.1 available, search for father_mande for the download. I had to rebuild the RAID array and lost the official Kodi app, so installed the father_mande port and it works perfectly.I've got TS-453A and have updated the firmware. I still can't find Kodi. Any suggestions? Thanks.
