11/17/2009 – Featuring big functionality in a tiny form factor, Thecus' breakthrough N0204 miniNAS brings all the power of a traditional NAS into a device the size of a paperback book. In their October 2009 issue, APC Magazine put the little NAS that could on the test bench, and after subjecting it to a battery of tests, agreed that it is truly something special. In fact, they saw it fitting to award the N0204 miniNAS their coveted Editor's Choice Award, saying that they “have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the N0204.”
The N0204 is easy to use and easy to love: "The Thecus N0204 offers the convenience of a dedicated NAS device in a package that fits into the palm of your hand, and won't set your wallet on fire…Setting up the N0204 is a breeze. The installation software offers a one-click setup, while a manual setup sequence delivers a more tailored experience. Either way, you'll have the N0204 ready for basic file serving duties in less than two minutes. However, unlocking all of its potential will take a lot longer — it's feature-packed. "
It serves media, manages downloads, and even monitors your home: "The inclusion of Macrovision's DLNA-compliant Embedded Media Server makes it the perfect distribution point for your music, videos and pictures. It also includes iTunes server functionality. If you're a heavy downloader, the N0204 can take care of your HTTP, FTP and even BitTorrent downloads. Just point it at the target URL or torrent file and it does the rest. You can even schedule the download to occur during off-peak hours. It even offers a cheap security system when paired with a webcam."
The verdict? "It's remarkable to see all this functionality offered in a package that fits into the palm of your hand, and our performance tests showed that it's no slouch either. Copying a 2.5GB ZIP file to the device in RAID 0 mode, via a 10/100 Ethernet connection, took only 4 minutes, 9 seconds. As a result, we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the N0204 for those who need an affordable, feature-rich and easy-to-use NAS device."
