04/28/2008 – Music lovers are starting to see the power and flexibility of the N5200B PRO from Thecus. The editors of Computer Audiophile took one for a spin and discovered how awesome it is, naming it "the best audiophile music storage solution available today!"
Computer Audiophile was in love right from the beginning: “Storage has traditionally never been a part of the audiophile vocabulary...I am very selective when it comes to choosing storage for my music server. I want all the options, a lot of disk space, and I'm not willing to spend an arm & a leg...Then I found the Thecus 5200B Pro IP Storage Server. Music server storage doesn't get any better than this.”
The best storage solution for music lovers: “The Thecus 5200B Pro is arguably the best music storage solution available. The 5200 has five drive slots that can currently hold 1 TB each. No doubt this will increase as the next generation of larger hard drives is released. The 5200 only requires one disk to get going. I don't recommend this approach, but it does work. A midlevel approach is to add three drives to the unit, thus enabling you to take advantage of the built in RAID 5 capability. Personally I couldn't resist going whole-hog by throwing five 1 TB drives into the 5200. As a side note, I've made it a mission of mine to fill the 5 TBs with nothing but great music. ”
The conclusion? “I have no doubt that the Thecus 5200B Pro IP Storage Server is the best audiophile music storage solution available today. When compared to the Drobo with the Droboshare the price is only $50 more. The performance and options on the 5200 are so far beyond what the Drobo is capable that the two are not in the same league. The Drobo is easier to use for people without any technical skills. However the 5200B Pro is a far better product and can be configured to work without too much skill needed. A little effort up front will go a long way in the long run…With five drive bays, room to expand, and even the capability to change RAID types on the fly the Thecus 5200B Pro is the only way to go.”
