The QNAP TS-x31P3 series is recommended for home and office users that want to benefit from 2.5GbE networking to accelerate everyday usage and disaster recovery.
With 1GbE and 2.5GbE ports, the TS-x31P3 series allows users to easily adopt high-speed networking. Existing CAT5e/CAT6 cables can be used to connect a TS-x31P3 series model to a 2.5GbE switch to enable faster backup and smoother media streaming. Three USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports allow users to connect various peripherals and devices – including expansion enclosures to flexibly expand the TS-x31P3’s storage capacity.
