Thecus has released its latest home and SOHO NAS, the N2310. Equipped with an Advanced Micro Circuits Corporation (AMCC) 800MHz SoC processor and 512 MB of DDR3 RAM, this latest 2-bay device is an option for those seeking solid storage solutions on a budget.
Though not as powerful as the N2560 and N4560 released earlier this quarter, the N2310 still offers a lot of the features of its pricier siblings:

  • RAID support (0, 1, and JBOD)
  • Web-based file access
  • Built-in FTP server
  • BitTorrent client
  • Plex Media support
  • Mobile control and media streaming via T-OnTheGo (for Android and iOS)
  • 5 minute complete installation
  • Self-RAID creation
  • Energy Efficient: 5W

The N2310 allows users access and control of their files over the Internet, the ability to stream stored media to Android and iOS mobile devices, and to share and download files online with BitTorrent client. Once connecting the N2310 to the home network, simply download and run Intelligent NAS. It will automatically find the NAS and allow set up of the RAID or JBOD volume. Intelligent NAS will also permit users to connect to the N2310's operating system, ThecusOS 6, where they can monitor, configure, and update their NAS and modules.

Besides the comprehensive features and great usability, the N2310 boasts a budget-friendly price and energy efficiency. The processor's design allows for such a degree of energy efficiency that its day-to-day running costs are near negligible.

"This little black box can store up to 8TB of data with an unprecedented level of energy efficiency. In fact, we calculated it, and powering the N2310 for an entire year would only cost you $5.03," says Florence Shih, general manager at Thecus.
