Bookmark and Share

01/24/2013- Some people might question why Thecus® integrates so many external connections. Thecus® aims to provide quality, innovation, integration and reliability. In other terms, numerous external connections are integrated because it is reliable, convenient and a flexible way to perform NAS operations.

External ports are commonly used to connect external HDDs or flash drives. Several USB ports and right modules foster the ability to schedule data backups. For any reason, if users choose to transfer data to their external HDDs from their NAS, they can simply do so with the convenient external ports.

Key features of several external connections

  • Connect mouse/keyboard for local display
  • HDMI output
  • USB 3.0 and eSATA offers fast data transfers
  • Connect DVD burner with the use of USB and Data Burn module

External ports for mouse/keyboard connection

It's becoming a norm to employ local display when managing NAS devices, as it offers the versatility to eliminate computers or laptops from the scene. However, in order to get local display to work, a mouse/keyboard first will need to be connected to the NAS device. A main point why a number of ports like USB 2.0, 3.0 and eSATA are included is that users are still left with open ports if mouse/keyboard occupies the USB 2.0 slots.

Connecting external DVD drive

With the relatively new module Data Burn, users are able to conveniently back up their data to a DVD disc to ensure that their data is safe. This method lets users simply plug a DVD disk drive via external port to their NAS.  In addition, multimedia users are able to burn media files directly from NAS to DVD or vise versa.

HDMI output is a necessity

Adding to the local display feature, HDMI output is the sole external connection that allows the NAS to be displayed on the desired TV. HDMI output is handy as it offers both sound and visual display so multimedia users can get the most out of their multimedia center. 

Now, consumers can absorb why Thecus® NAS come equipped with a vast and diverse amount of external ports. Moreover, users won't need to worry about limited amounts of ports when multitasking. To add, innovative external ports like USB 3.0 and HDMI output provides a new meaning in multimedia center and rapid data transfer speeds. Ultimately, loads of external ports offer flexibility and ease when one needs it the most.
