Thecus N2100 Y.E.S. Box review

TechSpot
15 November 2007
  • Conclusion: And well, $600 is a great deal of money to spend on home storage, but when you consider all the applications you could give to the N2100, justifying the cost becomes a tad easier. The N2100 is much more than just network attached storage, and for many it will become a vital home network tool. Already I have become very attached to our N2100 sample and have found it to be an invaluable tool for storing and accessing data.

  • Conclusion: If you want to setup a network archive server easily, N2100 is definitely a product that you should take in on your list of choices. It has the performance to serve even the largest files and with RAID1 it offers safery for your valuable data. Stock it up with two 750 GB drives running either JBOD or RAID0, you have a huge amount of storage space in your disposal. All the content can be shared either inside your private network or to the whole internet community.
  • Pros: Good transfer rates, RAID; not just for single hard drive, Size and looks
  • Cons: Price?

Thecus N2100 review

27 April 2006
  • Excerpt: Did you ever use NAS (Network Attached Storage) device? If you did, you know that this concept is pretty cool and largely used all over the world. If you didn't, maybe this will come as a surprise to you, but having a dedicated device that handles only your storage is a pretty good idea. It's much easier that way, always knowing where your stuff is - for maintenance, growth and everything. Well, this is the world N2100 is coming from.

  • Conclusion: Thecus' YES Box N2100 does a lot of things right. It's robust, despite its plastic exterior; it looks good, but keep your grubby hands off; it's easy to setup, both hardware and software; it's easy to use, with multiple ways of getting at your data; and it's fast enough to serve multiple users simultaneously, but a little more performance wouldn't go amiss.

  • Summary: Partiamo dagli hard disk: tanto per complicare un po' la situazione, sono stati usati modelli di marche differenti (Seagate e Western Digital), prima nei tagli da 160 e 200GB, ed abbiamo provato a creare l'array in modalità 1. Tutto filato liscio, con il risultato di un HD da 160GB circa.
  • Pros: ottima la funzionalità iTunes, grossa compabilità con vari HD, possibilità di espansione wireless, ottima interfaccia.
  • Cons: Aerazione inesistente, Vibrazioni non isolate, Ostica gestione dei file.

  • Summary: Медиа-сервер Thecus в ряде случаев продемонстрировал довольно высокое быстродействие на операциях чтения-записи, однако в список лауреатов обзора не попал по уже известной причине. В то же время, обозначить ее как проблему совместимости с широким спектром накопителей, представленных на рынке, было бы не совсем правильно. Есть все основания полагать, что в очередной версии микрокода для встраиваемой системы YES Box N2100 обозначенные ограничения будут сняты.
  • Pros: В отличие от остальных участников тестирования, изделие Thecus оснащено двумя гигабитными сетевыми контроллерами.
  • Cons: Предельный объем для дискового RAID-массива ограничен 1 Тбайт (или 500 Мбайт для режима Single Disk).
