Thecus N4200

CNET
22 June 2011
  • Summary: Thecus N4200 is a fast and reliable storage and backup server for small-business environments. However, its lack of some advanced features, its high learning curve, and the relatively high price might turn away those who want to get the most out of a NAS server.
  • Pros: The Thecus N4200 offers fast performance, comes with a convenient hard-drive-bay design and a backup battery, and can handle both 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch SATA hard drives. The server supports multiple RAID configurations, lots of redundancies, and has plenty of ports for storage expandability and print serving. Users can also add more features via downloadable modules.
  • Cons: The Thecus N4200 is not easy to set up for nonsavvy users. Its front LCD is clunky to use, and it lacks many features compared with other similar NAS server. The server is rather expensive and its included backup software is useless.

  • 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.

Thecus N4200: Zero-Crash NAS reviewed and rated

HEXUS
4 May 2010
  • 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.
