05/16/2008 – For NAS users looking for not only large capacity but speedy performance, it just doesn't get much better than the five-bay N5200B PRO from Thecus Technology. Sporting a quick Intel® Celeron M CPU and 512MB of memory, the N5200B PRO truly delivers the goods. The editors of HWM Singapore recently tested the N5200B PRO, and liked it so much, decided to bestow it with their coveted Gold Award and a final score of 9 out of 10!
HWM begins with a short introduction: "The Thecus N5200B PRO is a five-bay hot swappable RAID NAS device that features a low voltage Intel Celeron M processor running at 1.5GHz and 512MB of DDR333 memory. It comes with its own set of storage management software based on Linux that either gives you the controls you need to find tune the device to work in your networked environment, of simply set up as a plug-and-play device."
The N5200B PRO offers performance in spades: "In terms of performance, we were simply awed by its ability to crunch through all the workloads thrown at it. Compared to most other NAS devices we've tested previously, the N5200B PRO is probably one of the faster one's we've seen so far. Even with processing intensive RAID arrays such as RAID 5 and 6, the N5200B PRO appears to have no problem with data throughput. To our surprise, its RAID 5 performance was even better than a 1TB SATAII drive connected directly to the PC."
Here's the HWM verdict: "Overall, the Thecus N5200B PRO is one mean network storage device that should fit very well into most environments. Although the Thecus N5200B PRO may seem like an expensive storage device but considering its enterprise-class features, the versatility and the performance of the product, we feel it's worth the investment after all."
