Thecus N3200 NAS Device Review

Hi-Tech Reviews
3 September 2009
  • Summary: Currently we are using the Thecus N3200 primarily as a file server and a backup system, the device has been configured using three 750GB hard drives which have 32MB of cache each.  The larger size caches contribute to data transfer rates far superior to any other NAS we have used in the past.   We also tried to use the N3200 as a web cam server, but surprisingly after trying two different web cams we had no success.

Thecus N3200

CNET
15 April 2009
  • Summary: If you can get by the lackluster bundled software, the empty three-bay Thecus N3200 offers much to like, including lightning-fast throughput (even in RAID 5) and a useful feature set that will appeal to home and small office users alike.
  • Pros: Excellent read and write performance; flexible RAID configurations; capability to mount ISO files; eSATA port; supports up to six USB devices at a time; LCD for quick management; runs cool and quiet.
  • Cons: Bundled backup software is worthless; inconvenient initial setup; takes a long time to build a RAID 5 setup; requires screwdriver to install hard drives; short one-year warranty.

Thecus N3200PRO 3-Bay RAID 5 NAS Review

Futurelooks
13 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Network Attached Storage used to be a thing sought after by real propeller heads ; the type of people who regularly read industry journals and whitepapers targeted at corporate Network Admins, and lust over enterprise-level computer hardware in an almost un-natural fashion. However in the past few years, NAS devices have started finding more mainstream uses.

  • Excerpt: Thecus took a great NAS and made it even better with the N3200 Pro. It's difficult to tell it apart from the original N3200 just by looking at it, because underneath the hood is where all the upgrades have taken place. During testing, RAID 5 build time was impressive and transferring files with the Pro model is faster when compared to its predecessor. Beyond that, everything else is just about identical between the two devices.

Thecus N3200XXX NAS Review

TechSpot
27 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Although the hot-swappable bays weren't designed as well as they could've been, it was fairly easy to install storage drives. In fact, it's fair to say that we appreciated most of the N3200XXX's internal design -- it was the external design that disappointed. To put it bluntly, the N3200XXX looks like a very cheap product, and its flimsy front door doesn't help. This is a shame because at $430 (without hard drives) it's not exactly inexpensive.

Thecus N3200 Networked Area Storage (NAS) Server

  • Conclusion: The Thecus N3200 is a fine example of what a home networked area storage device should and can be. With features galore, it packs quite a punch. While many users may not need or use all of the features that that this unit has, it’s nice to know that they’re there should the need arise. And the N3200 can support just about any need that the home user (or even small business user) might have.

Thecus N3200 review

Techworld
30 July 2008
  • Summary: The N3200 is slower than some other drives on offer, but its performance was about same as a four-drive Iomega StorCenter 150D. It offers innovative functions and is easy to use. So considering the fair price, the Thecus N3200 is a clear winner that offers good value for money.

  • Excerpt: Thecus succeeded in making a home NAS that is simple to set up without sacrificing features and functionality. Only a basic knowledge of networking is required to have dedicated storage up and running in a matter of minutes. If you can set up a home router, you can configure this NAS and be able to access files from any PC in the home.
