03/19/2014-With a hardcore fan base that spans the world and a dedication to the latest and best technology, Overclockers' Club is a favorite amongst enthusiasts, overclockers, hobbyists, and tech geeks. Taking their trademark pragmatic approach to the Thecus N2310, Wesstron of OCC spent a few weeks with the 2-bay integrated into his home network before publishing his review and presenting the N2310 with the OCC Silver Award.
“Packaged very well and protected with two thick foam inserts”, the N2310 comes across as “gorgeous compared to some older models in the networking world” with its “discrete look… and glossy tones.” The unit's “relatively slim frame” was found to fit in “very well” with its surrounding work environment, and opening the drive bays also helped reinforce the N2310's caliber by revealing the “durable” yet budget-conscious drive trays.
The initial setup of the Thecus N2310 NAS Server was described by Wesstron as “as painless of a process as it can be” with “clear and easy to follow” instructions guiding users through the automated RAID creation. In short order, Wesstron was looking at “a fully accessible entry called ‘N2310' under ‘Network' in my testbed before even logging into the Thecus N2310 NAS Server browser-based dashboard.”
Boasting the intuitive ThecusOS™ 6, the N2310 “offers an extensive set of features with the option to add even more ‘apps' through the NAS App Center for extra functionality.” From essential, such as “RAID management, backup utilities, user configuration, and shared folders creation”, the N2310 also offers “a plethora of network services including Bonjour, FTP, WebDAV, and DDNS”, and expanded functionality “such as Plex media server, Transmission BitTorrent client, iTunes Server, and Piczza photo album service.”
Performance and Use
The unit's performance, in a word, was “excellent” for home and small office users.
“Copying files and other general computing operations were perfectly executed, the unit was very responsive, and I did not notice any lag or slowness. Media file streaming performance was outstanding across the board; be it over Ethernet or WiFi, I enjoyed watching some of my favorite high bitrate 1080p MKV videos without a hint of a problem when using the laptop or the HTPC.”
The N2310 “has something for everyone” and with this unit Thecus has delivered “a great value, feature rich device” which manages to shine beyond its price bracket.
Thanks to Wesstron and the rest of the Overclockers' Club team for the review!
