Media: Overclockers Club | Country: USA

“With the improved firmware  comes a set of features to rival most larger units, with iSCSI, NAS Stacking, ISO image mounting, RAID level migration, and expansion. For a small unit, it has a big feature set and the performance to go with it.”

Media: Big Bruin | Country: USA

“In the end, the Thecus Techology N3200XXX network attached storage server earns the "Recommended" award for the functions and performance it offers for the price.”

Media: TechSpot | Country: Australia

“It'll be difficult to find a NAS device for the same price that delivers the same level of performance while supporting more than two hard drives… To wrap this up, we think the Thecus N3200XXX provides an excellent level of performance for its price. The device is easy to configure and it's quite powerful when you consider the number of optional modules at your disposal.”

Media: ITRENDS | Country: Denmark

“This is combined with the classic features that Thecus has on their NAS servers and so it can also be used as a DAS server, a name we came across a short time ago when we tested one such solution (Thecus's D0204).”

Media: PC World Norway | Country: Norway

“As these new models are being launched, Thecus is coming out with a major software update (v5.0) for many of its NAS models. The update will provide improvements in ease of use and functionality. In some areas the performance will be improved, including through adoption of the EXT4 file system. In addition, the functionality of Thecus NAS is already extensive. Besides traditional storage solutions…there are also add-ons that can be installed to provide additional functionality.”


  • Extreme Speed
    The N3200XXX is powered by an Intel Atom N270 processor for excellent system response and file transfer speed. With RAID 5 and vastly improved data throughput, the N3200XXX redefines the three-bay NAS once again with increased usability, functionality, and performance.
  • Extreme Data Backup
    Secure your data with the sophisticated features and refined simplicity that only Thecus can offer. Incremental backups and recover data with Acronis's True Image software, take and revert back to system snapshots at your leisure, and remotely backup to anywhere in the world with native Rsync support.
  • Extreme Power Management 
    N3200XXX supports scheduled power on/off. With this feature, users can set what time the system turns on or off. This feature is a big plus for people who want to conserve energy. Wake-On-LAN enables users to remotely turn the system on without leaving their seat. 
  • Extreme Protection 
    Put safety first with AES256bit RAID volume encryption and USB Key functionality. An impenetrable wall of protection is at your disposal to make sure only those you want can access your data, and no one else. Simply set up a USB flash drive key that unlocks your data with no hassle and maximum protection.
  • iSCSI Thin Provisioning Support
    Get the most out of your storage space with the extreme speed of iSCSI and the efficiency of iSCSI thin provisioning. Connect through iSCSI for the fastest data transfer speeds available and make wasted disk space a thing of the past with thin provisioning's flexible storage functionality.
  • Online RAID Volume Management
    Managing RAID volumes has never been easier thanks to the N3200XXX's Online RAID Volume Management. Administrators can easily expand or migrate RAID volumes without having to power down the system, eliminating costly downtime.
