09/25/2013-Another review for the N2560 came in this month, this time from Tweak Town in the US. Taking an eight page look at the latest ‘Intelligent NAS' from Thecus®, Tweak Town studied it from packaging to processor to power consumption and found it to be “intriguing to say the least.”
A closer look
Beginning their analysis with a discussion of the NAS market in general, Tweak Town noted that modern NAS servers “have moved beyond data storage through a wire network,” and that to get the most out of the latest systems, one needs to “look at the extra I/O hardware and the mountain of potential software features.” As a NAS targeted at “modest home users that want to have their storage and media experience within one device” however, it is understandable if one were to consider the N2560 a simple device.
While user-friendly, the N2560 is certainly not dull. With “attractive box art” and a structural design that “blend[s] in with the modern decor of households,” the N2560 is quite the looker. But beauty would only be skin deep if not for the Intel Atom SoC that allows it to video record in HD at an “impressive” 89.8 MB/s, “serve up media through the onboard XBMC client straight to your television”, and “stream video in HD quality to multiple devices.” And to top it all off, the N2560 will be priced at over $100 less than “comparable products in market.”
With a final score of 90% at the end of the review, the N2560 was described as “the next evolution of NAS storage systems” and walked away with a “Best Value Award.”
Thanks to Tyler and the rest of the Tweak Town team for the review.
