Thecus N7700

7 December 2009
  • Summary: The Thecus N7700 NAS device works best as a basic network share and when coupled with an iSCSI server. The ability to mount ISO images is also handy for deploying software across a company, but poor user administration features hamper its effectiveness in large work environments.

Thecus N7700: seven bays of NAS goodness?

HEXUS
10 February 2009
  • Conclusion: As the first seven-bay NAS solution to grace our labs, we don't yet have a direct competitor to which it can be fairly compared. Nonetheless, our initial impressions are good. Despite raising storage capacity with a massive seven drive bays, the N7700 performs admirably in our test suite and is able to hold its own when compared to lesser five-bay units.

Thecus N7700

ZDNet
20 July 2009
  • Summary: The N7700 is one heck of a NAS box — although we'd recommend staying away from ZFS due to the FUSE implementation, if you need something to take seven drives and have nowhere to put a rack mount unit, this should fit the bill nicely.
  • Pros: Seven bays, Plenty of options and features, OS X set-up tool
  • Cons: ZFS implementation should probably be avoided, Cooling system a little loud
