02/22/2013 – The Italian online media Hardwareforyou.it is now quite familiar with Thecus® products. After reviewing the N5550 from the Vision series last year, they now tested the 6-bay NAS from the TopTower series, the Thecus® N6850. Equipped with an Intel® Pentium® G620 processor and 2GB of DDR3 RAM, the SMB and enterprise oriented NAS left a very good impression with the media: “With a few steps to configure even the most complex functionalities and the ease of access via mobile devices makes this one tower the best NAS on market.”
The TopTower series was designed with one thing in mind: offer enterprises and SMBs top performances and great connectivity in a tower format. With its fast processor, double LAN ports supporting link aggregation and even faster transfer speed made possible with the addition of a 10GbE card, the N6850 won't slow you down. “The Thecus N6850 does not create a bottleneck, but indeed allows reaching of the speed limit of the standard gigabit Ethernet: the values that are recorded during reading/writing are high despite many services running on the NAS and the limitation seems to be the gigabit switch interposed between the computers and the NAS.”
First time users will soon realize how easy it is to setup and manage their N6850. The ThecusOS™ 5.0 is a clear and well laid out UI that makes the less experienced users configure their NAS like professionals. “The real strength of this device, however, is the web interface and the innovative Thecus OS, which allow the configuration of this device even for the less experienced: it is this aspect that makes the Thecus N6850 a completely different device from the others and of great value.”
