Thecus N2200XXX NAS Server Review

The N2200XXX is a great way to store your information with ease of access. The Intel Atom D525 processor also makes transferring files to this unit really fast. It runs circles around the competition in terms of file speed and transfer rate. By Shane N.

Finding extra storage space can be difficult these days because there are just so many different storing devices available to the public. They can range from an extra hard drive in RAID, external hard drives, CDs, flash drives, or NAS. NAS (Network Attached Storage) is a great way to store your important information while still keeping them close at hand. You can access it with any computer connected to your Internet without having to connect it straight. If you are in need of a speedy 2-bay drive for your home office or leisure use, the Thecus N2200XXX could be the device for you.

Thecus is well known brand for making some really innovative NAS devices that are fast, user-friendly, and relatively inexpensive. I will go over in great detail the specs and performance of the N2200XXX, but let’s just say that it definitely does not disappoint in any of these categories. First off, the triple x design is very similar to Vin Diesel’s tattoo. I wonder if they had to do something extra in order to use the same logo. Seems a bit unusual to me but it probably doesn’t matter to anyone else. Anyways, pulling out the tabs and opening the box reveals the N2200XXX and accessories they have offered us. They have included a good number of screws for securing both 3.5’’ and 2.5’’ hard drives in the hard drive bay. Two keys for locking and securing both hard drive bays. A quick installation guide fold out that is pretty handy and shows pictures of how to quickly start up their device. They have also included the NAS start up CD, Acronis True Image CD, and Media Server Software for installing the software and all the various modules that can be used with it.
