04/25/2011- Tom's Hardware Guide is one of world's leading electronics sites. Their performance tests are the definitive reference for who falls in the top echelon and who does not. They recently added a few of Thecus's newest products to their charts after the across-the-board testing and showed that Thecus products are the top of the heap when it comes to performance NAS. The main difference is that Thecus's prices are much lower and the values are much higher.
The Thecus N5200XXX and N4200PRO both rank very well against the competition in performance, placing first on a number of key charts and coming within spitting distance of the first on others. These are very fast NAS, completing backup, storage, and streaming tasks in a fraction of the time at speeds that can truly handle the rapidly expanding capacities that are making their way into everyday computing. This impressive performance goes a long way into cutting down !
In this era of parallel competition and hardware parity, choosing the best NAS comes down to just a few factors: features and price. The Thecus N4200PRO and N5200XXX both run Thecus's brand new Firmware V5, which offers a host of advanced features such as iPhone and Android connectivity, EXT4 support, 3TB HDD support, a brand new photo server, and a revamped UI. The Thecus N4200PRO also is the only NAS on the market to have one of the most innovative additions to the NAS world: the Mini-UPS backup battery.
Taking all of these things into account, one would expect the price of a Thecus performance NAS to be much higher than the competition, but instead, the opposite is true. At prices that are literally hundreds of dollars lower than the alternatives, with excellent performance and functionality, the Thecus N4200PRO and N5200XXX are the new standard in NAS.
