QNAP logoQNAP has announced a more powerful silent, "living room" NAS.

The HS-251 is the follow on to the company's HS-210 announced at CES. It features the same "set-top" design and is fanless and silent except for hard drive noise.

Both have HDMI, two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports and Gigabit Ethernet ports; two for the HS-251 and one for the HS-210. The HS-251 has an MCE-compatible IR receiver, while the HS-210 does not.

The diskless NAS has dual hot-swappable bays accept 2.5" and 3.5" hard or solid state drives.
