Thecus over the year have racked up a number of firsts in the network storage sector including the introduction of the worlds first five bay NAS, first NAS with 10GBase-T support, the first NAS with media display output via HDMI and more. Its safe to say that when it comes to thinking up fresh ideas for what the customer wants, they are a step ahead all the time.
Fresh out of the Thecus development room we have yet another world first, a 7-bay tower NAS that dubbed to be Thecus’ most affordable, high value, intelligent offering going. One question comes to mind is that if this is an affordable unit and sits in a fiercely competitive are where six and eight bay units compete constantly, how have Thecus jazzed this unit up to make it more desirable? First things first though, we will point out that whilst this is bay-for-bay a competitively priced unit, this is not to say that the specification has taken a hit at all – in fact we find all the major features that we would find on any other Thecus NAS including dual-LAN, 2GB of RAM, LCD display on the front, HDMI output, USB 3.0 and the intuitive user interface on the rear.
We know Thecus have got all the ingredients for a quality system, so can it stand up to our high expectations that we inherently have from their products?
Bundled in with the NAS we find a standard Thecus array of CD’s, warranty card, installation guide, drive tray screws and cables for getting the NAS up and running.
