09/08/2008 – Thecus' high-performance five-bay NAS, the N5200, continues to make a huge impression on hardware media around the world. This time, the folks at Hardware Secrets took a close look at the N5200 and found that the proof was indeed in the pudding, citing the N5200's “terrific performance”.
Hardware Secrets begins with a short introduction of the N5200: "Thecus N5200 is a high-performance Network Attached Storage (NAS), a box where you install hard disk drives to make them available to your network, basically a small yet powerful file server for your home or office. The reviewed model allows the installation of up five hard disk drives, supporting RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 and JOB, featuring three USB ports, one eSATA port and two Gigabit Ethernet ports."
The N5200 is a performance champ: "Below you can see the results for the ‘I/O Comparison' test using 128 KB blocks, given in KB/s. On this test Thecus N5200 was the fastest NAS box, being 108% faster than Promise SmartStor NS4300...On write performance Thecus N5200 presented an impressive performance, similar to a RAID0 system shared from a regular PC. It was 116% faster than Promise SmartStor NS4300..."
Even more performance results: "Below you can see the results for the ‘Overlapped I/O' test using 128 KB blocks, given in KB/s. As explained, the program was configured to use four parallel operations. Here Thecus N5200 achieved a terrific performance, the same as if you were reading data from a RAID0 or a single drive shared from a regular PC. Its performance was impressively 25% higher than if you were reading data from one of the disks installed on your local PC!"
Here's the verdict: "Thecus N5200 is really a high-end NAS box target to users that want a NAS solution with above-the-average performance...This product is recommended for the home or office user that manipulates large files and wants a high-performance NAS box..."
