The new TS-x31K series is highlighted by its quad-core 1.7 GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, Gigabit LAN (the TS-131K has one port while the 2- and 4-bay models have two), SATA 6 Gb/s, and AES 256-bit encryption. Additionally, the drive bays feature a tool-less and lockable design, which allows for easy installation and removal of drives.

Users can also schedule backups from their personal computers (Windows and Macs) and mobile devices. For further protection, users can back up to another NAS or cloud storage as an off-site copy using Hybrid Backup Sync (HBS). Moreover, snapshots can help protect against ransomware by quickly restoring files to previous versions.

Like all QNAP solutions, the new TS-x31K line gives users access to a wide range of applications such as Photo Station, Video Station, and Music Station, as well as the ability to turn the NAS into a Plex Media Server. Other applications include Surveillance Station and Qsync, the latter which automatically syncs files between NAS devices, mobile phones, and personal computers.
