"The Thecus N3200PRO offers a host of functions and features including server functions like file server, FTP server, backup server, printer server, Web surveillance sever, backup server, printer server, Web server, media server, iTunes Server and download server. These functions along with the RAID 5 and USB wireless dongle capability make this NAS perfect for SOHO and small scale organizations as it offers a full complement of features to make up for its rather limited storage capacity."

"In terms of functional features, the biggest USP (unique selling proposition) has to be that the N3200PRO supports ISO mount.  By using this feature, users can share an ISO file that is currently being accessed.  In addition, if you have an USB webcam, then you can even do interval shooting with this NAS."

Media: Overclockers Club | Country: USA

"The N3200PRO would make an excellent addition to any home network and its strong performance, outstanding RAID 1/RAID 5 data protection and ability to store up to 3TB of data should place this on any home user's short list of NAS units to buy. The N3200PRO is a great NAS, one that I would certainly not hesitate to recommend to others."

Media: Overclockers online | Country: USA

"The N3200PRO shares the same features as the more expensive N4100PRO and N5200PRO, and not to mention the built in iTunes, print and media server are a great addition. For a large household with an incline towards digital media the N3200PRO NAS could definitely come in handy."
