01/26/2009 – The world of NAS storage is becoming larger, with many people discovering the advantages of having a centralized file storage solution. The Thecus® N4100PRO, with its large capacity, strong performance, and robust functionality is becoming the price/performance sweet spot for many users. The latest review comes from APH, and after running the N4100PRO through a series of tests, found out just what all the fuss is about. In fact, they gave it a final score of 8.1 out of 10 and their APH Recommended Award!
APH was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to set up the N4100PRO: "Three thumbscrews are implemented at the back for easy chassis cover removal. It's interesting how the non-removable thumbscrews allows the user to disengage pretty much the entire "guts" of the NAS, slide it out a bit, to release the one-piece panel cover. Nevertheless, there's no annoying and useless warranty seals that prohibits the end user from taking the N4100PRO apart -- which I definitely appreciate -- not to mention that it's completely done tool-free....Installing hard drives is easy. Using included screws, simply apply four to the bottom of the SATA hard drive. Slide it back in, and the physical installation is complete."
Once installed, the N4100PRO delivers some impressive performance: "With our Single File Benchmark, the Thecus N4100PRO demonstrated a series of very impressive results. While the read performance did not match the write performance, either is very good for its class. We measured the Thecus N4100PRO's read performance to come in at an excellent 25.29MB/s; while the write speed is also very good at 20.48MB/s. This results that in both benchmarks, the Thecus N4100PRO is significantly faster than the QNAP TS-409 in all our tests."
The APH verdict: "The Thecus N4100PRO is truly an excellent network attached storage system. Once it's up and running, it's a faithful servant that whatever your purpose may be, the N4100PRO is willing to deliver, with speed and stability, every single time...The Thecus N4100PRO is also very stable and I have personally experienced no stability issues over weeks of testing...Generally speaking, in everyday usage, the Thecus N4100PRO is flawless and delivers the performance and features I crave. The Thecus N4100PRO is an outstanding NAS thanks to its incredible file performance and features... At first, I thought it was "just another NAS" -- but I couldn't have been more wrong. To be honest, even without the drawbacks as mentioned, the Thecus N4100PRO is still a very competent NAS -- or should I say, it's still a winner in my books!"
