02/05/2008 – With the introduction of the N299, Thecus has truly brought NAS storage to the mainstream. The N299 is not only affordable, but is packed with features which make it perfectly suited for the home. The editors of Personal Computer World recently brought the two-bay wonder into their labs, and after close examination, editors found that it is truly a charming, feature-packed NAS device.
Here's an introduction of the N299 by PCW editors: “The latest NAS to enter the PCW Labs is the Thecus N299. It houses two 500GB hard drives (other sizes are available) along with a fan to keep them cool. Two USB ports sit at the rear, along with a further port at the front, and a small button lets you transfer data from a USB key to the NAS device quickly. A power button is also located at the front and a series of LEDs let you know what the N299 is up to.”
The N299 comes with features galore: “Once updated with the new firmware we started creating shared folders and scheduling Bit Torrent downloads, which all worked well. Individual and group user accounts can also be set up, with different levels of access rights...As expected, the N299 will supply photos, music, and video stored on it to any UPnP media streamers you might have on your network.”
The conclusion from PCW: “The Thecus N299 certainly isn't without its charms and, it's reasonably priced.”
