07/06/2012 – For the July edition of the magazine DOS/V Power Report, the Japanese media had the N2800 in their test lab to see if the little beast could deliver or not. Well it turns out it did. With a score of 4 out of 5, the outstanding performances of this 2 bay NAS are showing up to strengthen its reputation once again.
User friendly and performances
The Japanese media tested the model from the Vision series from top to bottom, leaving nothing out. Out of their review, they mentioned how the UI is user friendly, RAID volumes are easy to create and how installing add-on features are simple. But simplicity of operation couldn't be accomplished it was not of the Intel® Atom™ processor supported by 2GB of RAM. As DOS/V mention “the motherboard and other hardware components are too good for a NAS”, making it a one of a kind bargain for a 2 bay NAS. Testing the N2800 in RAID 1 mode, the Thecus® NAS accomplished read benchmarks of more than 50MB/S and writing one above 100MB/S.
With a compatibility with 4TB HDD for a total of 8TB of storage (internal only, external addition of many TBs is possible with the USB3.0 and eSATA ports), an HDMI output to eliminate the use of a PC and play your media file directly on a TV screen and easy access to your stored data in your NAS thru any mobile device, the N2800 from Thecus® scores high with DOS/V and raises the bar for others.
The mentioning of Thecus® in the DOS/V magazine didn't stop there. Also, in the July issue of the magazine, readers can find an interview with Thecus® General Manager, Florence Shih. To complement the interview, the Japanese media gave a brief but precise description about two other Thecus® device, the N4800 and the N6850. They mention how the N4800 which is part of the Vision series is equipped with an Intel Atom processor, HDMI output, USB 3.0 ports and a Mini-UPS. Fully equipped, the N4800 is an ideal choice for SMBs and home users. About the N6850 which is part of the TopTower series, they talk how the enterprise NAS is equipped with an Intel Pentium processor, touch panel and sports and elegant and luxurious chassis design.
The complete review can be found in the July 2012 edition of the DOS/V Power Report magazine.
