07/04/2013- Thecus® recently released a new revolutionary product, the N2520 network storage device, using the latest Intel® Atom ™ SoC dual-core processor with 1GB of memory, USB3.0 and HDMI output. In addition, equipped with the latest development of ThecusOS™ 6 and the Intelligent NAS application, the N2520 is even more powerful. The Intelligent NAS app was designed with the purpose of improving the user experience and gives hope to those afraid to touch computer equipment. Users can easily get started as it is very pleasant to use. After rigorous testing, PChome declared the N2520, a "lightweight, highly functional and excellent NAS model” and gave it a high evaluation of 4 stars.
Installation of the N2520 in the beginning, only requires a simple three-step process:
1) Without any screws or without the use of any tools, you can easily install the hard disks into their bays.
2) Connect the power cord and turn on the power and connect it to the network via ethernet.
3) Open the install.thecus.com website to access its own OS to download and install applications that augment the NAS.
Completing these three steps you will see the N2520 as a network drive, and then you can start using the N2520 right away to access files. It's just as easy as using a PC, all without entering ThecusOS 6's UI interface.
In the Intelligent NAS application provided, a number of easy to use features such as automatic building of RAID, BitTorrent downloading, the sharing of photos to Facebook and free DDNS registration, among other useful features, are all available.
For advanced users, the latest ThecusOS 6 is optimized with a graphical management interface that is more simple to use, allowing you to easily find a desired function. You can even make default shortcuts for commonly used functions, eliminating the time needed to look for frequently used functions. ThecusOS 6 is built with many useful advanced features, one of the most important of which is the Data Guard complete backup solution, whether it is a scheduled backup, local, remote or cloud backup.
After a complete evaluation PChome, gave the N2520 a full 4 Star rating both in hardware specifications, installation, energy savings and application functions. The editors were pleased with the overall package, saying: "another important feature is the simplicity of the package, the N2520 is installed on the hard disks without any screws ... it just feels like a normal small appliance...the management interface is refreshing."
