01/19/2016 - Madshrimps is a site created for IT enthusiasts. Their readers can find all types of news and reviews of related to the Technology industry. This time, their professional team decided to test a unique NAS, a Thecus Windows NAS. The 4-bay, W4000+ is based on Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials. Let´s take a closer look to their conclusion.
When Thecus announced the Windows Storage Server Essentials series it became the world first company using this easy to use operating system. “Considering the fact that most NAS for home and small businesses from different manufacturers are mostly based on Linux distributions, Thecus has thought to try something new by creating a different model which is named W4000+; this is basically a refreshed version of the initial W4000, which sported only 2GB of RAM, the new one doubling the memory, while incorporating the same processor.”
“Thecus has made an interesting variation on the market with their W4000/W4000+ NASes (a 2-bay and also a 5-bay version is also available) considering that we no longer have a Linux distribution on our server but Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials and the product can be used from scratch like a regular PC.”
After a completed review, the editor gave the W4000+ the Novelty Award.
Thanks to Stefan and the rest of the team at Madshrimps for the review.
