12/05/2012 – PC Update is a French print magazine with a focus on computers and everything revolving around the subject. For their November/December 2012 edition, they decided to give their users a complete NAS comparison that includes 16 NAS of 2 to 4 bays from a multitude of manufacturers. Representing Thecus®, the 2-bay N2800 from the Vision series gave out all it had and performed well. “The N2800 shines by its performance; (…) it represents a good investment.”
“The N2800 is the most powerful of the comparison…” That is not a surprise when you have a 2-bay NAS equipped with an Intel® Atom™ processor, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, SATA III compatible drive interface and two Ethernet ports that can support link aggregation. “In RAID 1 with blocks of 16KB, the copy of large files almost goes past the 100MB/s in writing and 81MB/s in reading.”
“The UI is relatively simple to master…There isn't much the N2800 can't do: mail server, Web, FTP, DHCP and iTunes, NZB and BT loading, …, synchronization with online cloud services like Dropbox, protection by the McAfee antivirus (offered),…, there are many more functionalities and services created by the community.” “We also appreciate the license delivered for the excellent server DLNA/UPnP server Twonky, a rare one supporting subtitles.”
For sure the HDMI output, media center capability and great hardware of the N2800 didn't go unnoticed by PC Update. By connecting your N2800 directly to a TV via the HDMI output, you can transform this device into the ultimate home NAS by taking advantage of its multimedia capabilities. Stay tuned with Thecus® to find out what new innovations the creator in storage will bring to the NAS industry.
