06/23/2010 – When critical data needs to be stored, a sudden power failure is one of the worst things that can happen. That's why the N4200 from Thecus® Technology truly shines with its Mini UPS unit, which keeps the system working long enough to write any unwritten data to the hard disks. In their June 2010 issue, HWM Singapore Magazine took the N4200 for a spin, and decided in the end to award it their sought-after Gold Award!
With its Mini UPS unit, the N4200 is incredibly reliable: "The N4200 comes with a removable lithium-ion battery module that is installed at the rear of the N4200. The 1000mAh battery might not last very long when main power is down, accidentally or otherwise, but at least this gives you enough time to reconnect power, or to temporarily shut the NAS down. The built-in battery worked great in our testing, lasting approximately five minutes with continuous warning beeps throughout. "
The N4200 gives you plenty of options for expansion: "Connectivity options on the N4200 are aplenty, with a pair of eSATA ports as well as six USB ports handy. Both eSATA connectors as well as four of the USB ports are located at the rear, while the remaining USB ports are placed up front. Whether external printers or additional storage options, you're pretty much set up nicely."
Of course, performance on the N4200 is stellar: "Performance-wise, the N4200 managed average read and write speeds of 64.79MB/s and 86.43MB/s respectively when configured in RAID 5 with a quartet of 1TB Hitachi hard disk drives; very impressive indeed..."
The conclusion from HWM: "Bottom line, Thecus certainly has a winner here with the N4200, especially with the inclusion of the built-in backup battery feature."
