Test Results

Conclusion

As seen from the results of the tests conducted by Small Net Builder, the Thecus N7770-10G ranked near the top of every category. Priced at $1170 with built-in 10GbE, the N7770-10G provides excellent 10 GbE File Copy Write performance; important if you are going to use its massive storage for video applications. The N7770-10G also supports multiple RAID configurations with different file systems for different volumes. That could be important if you need volume snapshotting available with the BTFRS file system. If you need at least seven bays and 10 GbE performance, the best choice of the 10 GbE NASes we've tested is the Thecus N7770-10G.”
