  • Conclusion: The second-best-value package is now another dual-500Gb combo, but this time with Seagate drives instead of the cheapo Samsungs in the other package. Since the drives'll be spinning whenever the N299 is powered up, it may be worth buying better-quality drives - but frankly, I think The dual-Seagate package only costs $AU445.50 including delivery, though - only seventy bucks, or about 19%, more than the dual-Samsung one - so it's not a terribly expensive insurance policy.

  • Excerpt: The Thecus N299 is a networked-attached storage (NAS) device – an external hard disk that plugs into a spare network port. It’s thus available to all PCs on your network, which makes NAS boxes much more convenient than standard USB or FireWire external drives – Windows and Mac users can map folders on the N299 that look like any other drive on their PC.

Externe harddisk - Thecus N299

  • Conclusion: Hoewel de Thecus N299 over een Photo Album optie beschikt, is het apparaat vooral een prima opslagmedium voor grote hoeveelheden data. Voor fotografen die hun kostbare beelden veilig willen stellen, biedt het apparaat prima voorzieningen. Zo bent u dankzij de ingebouwde RAID 1 optie altijd verzekerd van een automatisch back-up van uw kostbare beelden. De Thecus N299 kost zonder harddisks slechts 135,- euro en dat is gezien de geboden kwaliteit niet teveel.

Thecus N299

Komputer for alle
8 April 2008
  • Summary: Thecus anstrenger sig for, at gøre det så besværligt som muligt, at komme i gang med deres billige netværksharddisk, som ikke kan anbefales til dem uden hardware- og netværkserfaring. Til gengæld er der masser af smarte funktioner at komme efter, når man har kæmpet sig igennem opsætningen og installationen. Før N299 kan bruges, skal der monteres en til to SATA-harddiske i den (op til 500 GB pr. stk.), og de medfølger ikke.
  • Pros: Masser af funktioner, Understøtter gigabit-netværk
  • Cons: Larmer meget, Sjusket installationsguide, Elendig installation/opsætning
