09/03/2013- This week, American review site SmallNetBuilder released the results of their Thecus® N2560 test. Tried and tested, compared and clarified, the N2560 proved itself to be the little NAS that could.
It's what's on the inside that counts
With a 33% faster processor and double the RAM, the N2560 is a worthy successor to this year's ground-breaking 2-bay NAS, the N2520. Similar to its predecessor, the N2560 was found to only need 20W at full throttle, “with just a low ‘woosh' coming from the fan.”
In RAID 0, Intel® NASPT write throughput was tested at 91 MB/s and read clocked in at 88 MB/s. These and other results put the N2560 ahead of a third of all listed Intel Atom NAS, even those with dedicated dual CPUs.
A media center by any other name
When it came time to discuss the N2560's “nice features”, SmallNetBuilder highlighted the unit's digital audio and video out ports. These mean that the N2560 can potentially be used similarly to a Home Theater PC or digital music center (which hardware in most other smaller NAS don't support). A boon to any home user with an HD display and love for media.
So what do you think about our latest additions to the Intelligent NAS lineup? Let us know on Facebook or on our official Thecus® Forum.
