This looks interesting. Haven't seen pricing, yet.

Fanless, revolutionary thermal design and power efficient

Instead of a fan, the HS-210 features a remarkable thermal design that intelligently dissipates heat, allowing us to create a sleek, modern design without the bulk of conventional NAS systems. This innovative thermal design helps keep the HS-210 running smoothly even under the heaviest loads. The HS-210 is also eco-friendly, with power saving features including hard disk standby when not in use, and power management scheduling options.


Power Consumption (W) Sleep mode: 7.39W
In Operation: 13.71W
(with 2 x WD RED HDD installed)

Scheduled on/off or restart

Set up automatic system power on, off, or restart

Convenient power management

There might be occasions when the Turbo NAS is left free from usage. The Turbo NAS offers scheduled power on/off feature that allows you to manage the system up time according to your daily schedules. You can set up the time to automatically power on, power off, or restart the Turbo NAS on any day of the week, bringing in more convenience and effectively saving the energy.

Considered this unit for a home NAS, the price hovers around the 300 EUR mark here. Ended up with a Synology DS214se instead, as it was half the price, and the fan just made sense - "better safe than sorry". Half price was enough to cover one 3 TB drive on its own, so it was really no contest.

A 100% price premium is really hard to justify. The location would have to be extremely sensitive for a passive design to be a deciding factor for me, especially since the drives would be mechanical anyway.
