10/27/2010 –The N4200 from storage leader Thecus® Technology has received countless accolades since its release. Russia's Hard 'n' Soft brought the N4200 into their test lab, and after putting it through a veritable gauntlet of tests, they were rightly impressed with the zero-crash NAS.
The N4200's mini-UPS unit is one of its killer features: "Looking at the Thecus N4200 from behind shows a place for a PCI-Express x4 expansion card and four USB 2.0 connectors, two hi-speed eSATA ports, LAN and even WAN, and a plug for the battery cover. Yes, if the power goes out, the Thecus N4200 is ready in minutes - inside is a 15-volt 1000 mAh capacity Li-Ion battery. The Thecus properly shuts down, and when an external power supply is restored, it automatically turns back on."
Thanks to external modules, the N4200 is incredibly flexible: "Suppose we want to install the IP CAM Surveillance module. Specify the path to the file IP_Cam_2.0.1.mod. After installation, there will be an addition in the list of modules - activate IP CAM. Through the process of configuring existing IP-cameras, the Thecus N4200 is transformed into a monitoring system."
The verdict from Hard 'n' Soft: "In conclusion, a review of some of the features worth mentioning gives the Thecus N4200 an advantage over many devices. The hard drives slots and trays themselves are arranged in such a way that the N4200 can use 3.5" or 2.5" hard drive form factors. Through this approach, network data storage can be very quiet and have very low power consumption."
