Real world power consumption of HS-251+ and HS-453

Post by TOMillr » Mon Oct 12, 2020 1:48 am

I'm currently looking for a NAS with an as low-as-possible power consumption and have my eyes on either the HS-251+ and HS-453.

The official QNAP technical product sheets gives the following values during HDD sleep mode:

13.55 W (HS-453)
7.1 W(HS-251+)

Why do the two system differ so much in their idle power consumption, given that both SOCs are rated by Intel with a TDP of 10 W? Or is the difference between the two systems mainly due to the additional power draw of the M2.SSDs?

Does anyone have any real life values for just the base system without any HDDs or just a power-friendly SSD installed?

The main reason for going with an Intel-system would be the support for hardware transcoding when used as a Plex media server.
