11/08/2010 – When push comes to shove, the N4200 from storage leader Thecus® Technology blows away competing four-bay NAS devices with superior performance and a rich feature set. This was proven once again, and this time by PC World Denmark who put the Zero-Crash N4200 to the test!
As predicted, the N4200's Mini-UPS really shines:"Perhaps the biggest selling point is probably the internal battery which can be regarded as a small UPS (uninterrupted Power Supply). It has exactly enough power so the N4200 can gallop on for about about two minutes while any data contained in the buffer is written safely to the disks - after which the NAS drive shuts down properly. The solution is more or less unnecessary for companies with dedicated UPS, but for all of us it is certainly a welcome feature. Especially since the price does not seem to have galloped into the sky for it."
The N4200's trounces a competing unit in the performance test:"The first test consisted of reading and writing of a gigabyte image files of varying file size. Here the NAS showed speeds of 25 and 16 megabytes per second, which fully meets or surpasses the excellent Qnap TS-459 Pro. We tried also with a single 4.5 gigabyte, which we used Microsoft Robocopy and here the N4200 blared through with excellent rates of 84 and 60 megabytes per second respectively."
And the verdict?"As a whole we are satisfied with Thecus' powerful NAS device, which is particularly recommended if you appreciate the extra options the drive offers for data protection."
