10/03/2011 – Alt Om Data of Denmark is well versed in NAS testing and has seen its fair share from all over the market. Taking a good hard look at the Thecus N4200PRO gave them no choice but to give it an excellent score of 4.5 stars and a detailed review to match. They were struck by some Thecus-exclusive hardware innovations that put the N4200PRO above and beyond the competition as well as the powerful software.
The Mini-UPS backup battery is the only one of its kind on the market: “...it is often said that this NAS contains its own UPS. During a power failure the battery takes over immediately as long as it is charged, and ensures that data is not lost in this situation.”
Dual DOM functionality is another Thecus-exclusive feature that sets the N4200PRO apart: “Safety is also ensured by a dual disk on module. It's a flash drive where the system software is. Rightfully, where there are two flash drives, one is primary and one is secondary, which automatically overwrites the primary, should the primary fail.”
iOS and Android apps make the N4200PRO connectable from mobile devices: “At the Apple store, you can pick up the ThecusShare and Dashboard apps. They are, respectively, to stream music and video from N4200PRO for your iPad, etc. and to monitor one's own NAS.”
Link aggregation fortifies the N4200PRO's already formidable speed: “We must also mention 'load balancing' and 'failover' via 'link aggregation ", which use two parallel network cables to the device. It can also increase the speed of the device considerably.”
