02/13/2012- Thecus' 8-bay enterprise N8900 keeps getting attention from the media. Australian online tech magazine CNET has just finished testing and rated this unit a 7.5/10!
CNET stressed N8900's powerful connectivity: “There are two USB ports at the front, another four at the back, three gigabit Ethernet ports, a serial port, two USB 3.0 ports and an eSATA port. Should you want more, there are another three expansion ports available, serviced by a PCI-e x1 slot and two PCI-e x4 slots, so if you need the likes of 10GbE, it's possible. You can even fit a slim-line SATA optical drive in if you so choose.”
N8900 is one of the most powerful NAS in its category on the market: “The NAS itself is reasonably powerful for a dedicated mid-range storage product, running a dual-core Core i3 2120 @ 3.3GHz, and featuring an impressive 8GB of RAM (with two slots left to spare).”
This device can boast its versatility and expansion features: “…there's also a bunch of modules that add extra functionality, like a newsgroup downloader, a mail server, an IP cam tool, a TwonkyMedia server, a torrent application, Dropbox support and more.”
