Excerpt: With the N4200 Pro, Thecus has further improved upon an already stable, high-performance four bay NAS. The upgraded hardware over the original N4200 make it a solid choice for a multiple user environment, and the mini-UPS and dual DOM features help avoid data loss in the event of a power outage or firmware corruption.
Excerpt: Last year we reviewed the Thecus N4200 just days after its release. The N4200 is still to this day the only consumer NAS that offers dual status display screens, but more importantly, the only consumer NAS to include a battery backup system. When Thecus first marketed their N4200 a lot of emphasis was placed on the new dual display feature, but we felt that the battery backup feature was the real standout feature.
Conclusion: The four-bay NAS market is becoming increasingly competitive, with viable solutions now available from the likes of Thecus, QNAP, Synology, Netgear and Drobo to name but a few. Prices for the aforementioned range from £400 to £650, putting the £540 Thecus N4200 somewhere in the middle. Pricing is relatively keen, but Thecus needs to differentiate from the competition and does so with an emphasis on stability.
Excerpt: Thecus has brought another high-performance, reliable NAS to the table with the N4200. The robust hardware specs make it a solid choice for a multiple user environment, and the battery backup and dual DOM features help avoid data loss in the event of a power outage or firmware corruption.
Excerpt: Today we are looking at a NAS system from Thecus, the N4200ECO. This product seems to be tagged as a ‘green’ solution with the ‘ECO’ moniker, although the company certainly haven’t skimped on the hardware. The N4200ECO is shipped loaded with a 1.8GHz Intel Atom D525 processor with a generous 1GB of DDR3 memory – it can support up to four 2.5 or 3.5 inch drives.
