10/11/2011- C't Magazine is known in Germany for being tough with hardware: their comprehensive tests and wide breadth of experience contribute to help publishing very accurate reviews, articles and reports. They are very familiar with Thecus products and recently reviewed the N5200XXX as well, that's why they found a lot of similarities between the N2200XXX and its big brother!
They started with the traditional hardware summary: “Inside, a dual-core Intel Atom CPU (D525, 1.8 GHz), there are two Gigabit Ethernet ports, one eSATA port and three USB 2.0 ports for connecting external storage media or UPS.”
Concerning speeds, everything went fine, even with the embedded SD card reader, which is the N2200XXX's trump card: “In our test with a fast SDHC card from Sandisk (Extreme III 16 GB) USB 2.0-connected the data transferred with about 19 MBytes/s and nearly reached the maximum speed of the card. […] Via SMB/CIFS the NAS reached transfer rates of up to 102 MByte/s (read) and 100 MByte/s (write) and exploits the full potential of gigabit Ethernet”.
Check out the full review in C't Magazine, issue 17, 2011, page 56.
