02/10/2014-In Hardware Heaven's latest video review, DaveChaos got his hands on the 2-bay Thecus N2310. Having always wanted a NAS drive, Dave was excited to test whether the N2310 had what it took to complement his video editing, connect his numerous devices, and act as a central repository for all his media.
Very, very cool
From the start, it became clear that for a budget-friendly device, the N2310 “packs a lot of stuff.” Going through a shopping-list of advanced features, DaveChaos made special mention of T-OnTheGo (“An Android and iOS app which is pretty damn cool”), the 5-minute complete installation (“because I know a lot of NAS drives can be quite complicated to set up if you're new to it”), impressive energy efficiency (“only 5 watts!”), and free DDNS (“which is really, really handy”). It wasn't until he got to the free Plex Media Server app, however, that the unbridled connectivity of the N2310 really shone through:
“…if you've got any movies or photos or music on your NAS, you'd be able to stream it to your mobile phone, so that's cool. And you literally just click the install button… How cool is that? Very simple. Very easy to get started.”
And on the practical side of things, how did the N2310 perform in DaveChaos's real life home/work environment?
“I'm going to get a lot of use out of it ‘cause I can do backups of my server onto there. I can also record the videos in my office onto it, and then just edit remotely over the network without having to leave my recording PC on. So really nice things like that.”
With this and more, DaveChaos concluded his first (of hopefully many) NAS reviews and presented the Thecus N2310 the Hardware Heaven Recommended Award!
Thanks to DaveChaos and the rest of the Hardware Heaven team for the review.
