“The ThecusOS 7.0. is very able, very confident. I have been very impressed using this NAS. It’s fast, it’s solid, it’s very serious. The hardware is very good indeed, that UPS could save your bacon in case of a blackout or even a brown out when your RAID can easily be scrambled. Provided you have a certain level of technical knowledge (or employ a member of staff who does) Thecus N5810 PRO is an excellent NAS that should provide sterling service. If you are a Thecus aficionado, it is fabulous.”

“At the back we find a cooling fan which expels air from the front and passes it between the internal components and hard disks. There is no shortage of USB ports, 2 x USB2.0 and 2 x USB3.0, plus 5 x Gigabyte Ethernet ports that can be configured to ensure higher operational redundancy. There is a HDMI connection to connect to a screen, so as to directly connect your NAS to a TV and send it multimedia content. At the bottom part is the addition of a 2.000mAh battery, which comes into operation the moment the main power supply fails, to ensure the NAS is able to turn off in the correct sequence to avoid accidental data loss”.
