10/07/2009 – The Thecus® N0204 brings the power of NAS storage into the palm of your hand. In their September 2009 issue, MAXIT Magazine Malaysia reviewed the miniNAS, and after putting it through the wringer, found that the N0204 is not only small, but also an extremely complete NAS package. In the end, they gave it a final score of 8 out of 10 and their MAX CHOICE Award!
MAXIT editors begin with a brief introduction of the N0204: "Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices are becoming increasing popular and it was a matter of time before someone came up with one for 2.5 inch hard disks. This allows for smaller NAS devices and the Thecus N0204 is a very good example. Barely larger than a 3.5” external USB desktop drive, the N0204 Mini NAS is extremely small and light, thanks to a plastic outer shell that has more holes in it than Swiss cheese. This helps ventilation but if users are worried about heat, they can use the bundled stand which has a built-in fan. This is attached to the bottom of the unit and users need to remove a small plastic cover at the bottom to expose the power connector powering the fan. This design works well as hot air rises and having a fan at the bottom makes great sense."
The N0204 is fully-featured, and yet very easy to use: "This NAS has a firmware that looks nearly identical to the N3200PRO we tested last month, although it doesn't have an eSATA port. Configuring the N0204 is quite simple...We tried three drives: one 160GB Seagate, an A-DATA 128GB SSD and the latest Intel 160GB SSD drive. All three worked perfectly. The NAS itself has a lot of features which rival larger devices including peer-to-peer transfers, iTunes server and even ISO mounting, amongst others."
The MAXIT conclusion: "If you're looking for a full-featured NAS but don't want to contend with large and bulky units, the N0204 Mini NAS is definitely the answer."
