Features

It is designed to enable users to access their data on its storage device that is housed in four SATA II hard disk bays which offer up to 8TB of storage capacity. In order to keep data safe, the N4200 comes with multiple RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 and JBOD; and supports a built-in battery backup module (BBM) that allows users to still access their data should the power go out for any reason.

Previous questions about this product

  • Why is the N4200 so slow on my network?

    I've seen plenty of people raving about the "blistering" speeds, yet I'm struggling to see 2MB/s from the Thecus. Transferring files from PC to PC over the network sees normal speeds - yet the Thecus is excruciatingly slow. I'm suspecting some sort of timing or setting issue. Can anyone throw any light on it?
