06/28/2010 – Compact yet powerful, the N0204 miniNAS from storage innovator Thecus® Technology wows everyone with its diminutive form factor and wealth of storage functionality. Recently, Computeractive brought on of these tiny wonders into their test labs, and when they were done with it, found that there was indeed a lot to like about the miniNAS, saying that "…the N0204 is decent value.”
Computeractive begins with a short overview of the N0204: "The concept of the Thecus N0204 is simple: you put one or more standard hard disks inside, connect it to the network and it provides storage that can be accessed from every PC in the house. Some such device can be large, but the N0204 is a tiny alternative, measuring less than 14x9x7cm. The reason it's so small is that rather than the 3.5in hard disks used by most NAS devices, the N0204 uses smaller 2.5in models of the type used in laptops. It has room for two, and fitting them was easy: screw them into the supplied trays, then slide those into the back of the device."
Silence and security are all included: "Like all NAS devices the N0204 takes a while to set up: you must first use a utility that finds it on the network, then upload some software, then wait while it formats the disks. This took some time, but we were pleased that it automatically set itself up using Raid backup technology so that if one hard disk fails all your data is safe on the other."
The verdict? "…the N0204 is decent value. It's roughly the same cost as equivalent but larger devices, and will suit those who value their shelf space more than fancy options and media streaming."
