Thecus N2650 2-Bay NAS Review

In the NAS market, Thecus is one of the biggest names out there
alongside QNAP and Synology and as we have seen in the past, the
performance and features that they have to offer for the price are
very well suited making them ideal for SOHO, SMB and enterprise users
alike. Focusing today on the SOHO market, typical home users generally
are in line to buy two and four bay systems for storing movies, music
and photos on to share across their network to TVs, computers and
wireless devices such as tablets.

Over the last year or so we have been seeing a slow migration by many
vendors to produce products that are white in appearance to target the
home user as they offer a cleaner and more conservative look to them
that makes then more suited for a home environment rather than a black
system that can look a little out of place or realistically - less

The N2560 that I'm having a look at today is one of the the first
white systems that Thecus have produced, the first being its little
brother - the N2520 - and following its showing at CeBIT back in
march, the storage giant has been making last minute tweaks and
adjustments to optimise its performance and functionality, in the
process bringing the N2560 the the line-up as well as the N2520. Over
the previewed N2520, the N2560 offers up double the RAM with 2GB of
DDR3 and a slightly faster Atom SoC, clocked to 1.6GHz over the
N2520's 1.2GHz chip.

Compared to Thecus' over 2-bay solutions, the N2560 offers up a
tool-free installation with drives that simply slide into the chassis
and get closed in behind a simple front door making the unit far more
user friendly for the novice buyers out there. Supporting up to 4TB
drives and offering the same host of functionality as any other Thecus
system, this Atom based system is internally just like any other NAS
that Thecus has to offer.
