11/10/2008 – With many of today's games topping four gigabytes or more, gamers everywhere are looking for ways to store their digital media. The Thecus® N5200BR, with its monstrous 5TB capacity and rock-solid features, is the storage solution they're looking for. Recently, the editors of Gamepyre tested the N5200BR and found a lot to like, and in the end awarded it with their Gamers Choice Gold Award!
Gamepyre begins with a look at the hardware: "The motherboard has an Intel ICH4 chip on it. All in all the perfect choice of components for backing up storage, after all the unit is supposed to run 24/7 and low-power processors like the Celeron-M are a good fit together. Some of the other important features of this NAS server include Online RAID Level Migration and Online Capacity Expansion which allows you to add more HDDs into a RAID array and change the RAID level without losing data which is an important thing."
It's not only fast, but also reliable: "Transfer rates are excellent with the N5200BR and this makes transferring your files and creating a backup of your information a shorter time consumer. Using an 8GB file of music from a computer I was backing up the transfer over a Gigabit LAN port on the video card test platform nForce 790i Ultra SLI board with to the Thecus® N5200BR NAS server took a little less than four minutes to accomplish. This is incredibly fast as a 320 Megabit transfer rate of a large file is incredible…It's been over thirty days since we built and started using the Thecus®5200BR as our main backup and no problems have been encountered yet. It's a good feeling to know that all your pertinent data is being redundantly backed up daily and so far the Thecus®5200BR has been great."
The conclusion? "The amount of energy the N5200BR consumes is less than a normal PC as the CPU is a Celeron-M 600MHz. As a file server, the N5200BR is an excellent example of using old hardware for new uses that work. There is nothing to complain about with the 5200BR, it is a solid well built and thought-out system that employs simple ideas and makes the user feel at ease with the unit from the point of entry of its installation to final backup of your files and information. The 5200BR is a two thumbs up Gamers' Choice product, good job Thecus®."
