"The Thecus N5200B network attached storage device is a utility that many users will not be attracted to while others will fall in love with the features and advanced control that it offers over other cookie-cutter NAS units on the market.  Support for two different Gigabit Networks and 5 3.5-in hard drive bays really give the N5200 a unique stance in the market and if you can swallow the somewhat surprising price this Thecus NAS could find a cozy spot on your network."

"I have to say the N5200 is a really great, great NAS. I haven't had too much experience with NAS devices before but I've always wanted one. As a developer and a media enthusiast, I wanted something to keep all my files in one place for easy access with some redundancy. So far after a few months I haven't run into any problems what so ever. I made the device shuts off during the late evening and turns on during the morning and it hasn't failed me yet. I even plugged in another eSATA drive while it was running and the N5200 found it without any issues. The Thecus N5200 provides that and more with a very small footprint, quiet operation, expandability through modules, and impressive performance."

"The amount of energy the N5200BR consumes is less than a normal PC as the CPU is a Celeron-M 600MHz. As a file server, the N5200BR is an excellent example of using old hardware for new uses that work. There is nothing to complain about with the 5200BR, it is a solid well built and thought-out system that employs simple ideas and makes the user feel at ease with the unit from the point of entry of its installation to final backup of your files and information. The 5200BR is a two thumbs up Gamers' Choice product, good job Thecus®."

Overview

6/30/2006 Since its introduction, the 4-bay N4100 NAS device from Thecus has been winning numerous recommendations from such renowned media as Hardware Zone, Hexus, and Tom's Hardware Guide. Today, Thecus Technology, a leading provider of digital storage solutions, is proud to launch its RouStor™ series. Thecus' RouStor™ series combines Thecus' award-winning NAS technology with routing capabilities into a single device. The result is an all-in-one solution that handles both networking and network storage for the home or office.

 Despite its small 230mm x 190mm x 230mm dimensions, the N5200 packs a lot of punch. Under the hood lies an Intel® Celeron® M processor running at 600MHz and 256MB of DDR memory for powerful data-processing capabilities. The N5200 has the capacity for five 3.5" SATA hard disks for over 3TB of storage! To keep data secure, the N5200 features various RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 and JBOD. Managing your RAID array is easy with the N5200's built-in RAID management features, including auto rebuild, hot swap, hot spare, disk roaming, and more. To backup your data, the N5200 comes with the Thecus Backup Application, as well as a feature called Nsync. With Nsync, users can have the N5200 automatically upload files to an external storage device via FTP at a designated time. What's more, if the external device is another N5200, the connection is made via a secure connection. Designed for SMBs to enhance data security, Nsync takes the guesswork out of data backup. 

With an intuitive multilingual web-based interface and Windows, Apple OS X, and Linux compatibility, file sharing between networked PCs with the N5200 is more convenient than ever. A speedy eSATA connector is included for future external expansion possibilities. Part of Thecus' innovative RouStor™ series, the N5200 includes 3 USB ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, and a 4-port Gigabit switch for excellent connectivity options. Users can even install a USB 802.11 b/g dongle for Wi-Fi capability. In addition, the N5200 comes with a robust software suite, including a print server, and FTP server, WebDisk capability, and Windows Active Directory support. 

“Powerful, flexible, and secure, the N5200 is a godsend for SMBs looking for an effective way to secure and share their data across a company network,” notes Thecus CEO Edwin Lin. “With the N5200, we've once again raised the bar for what people expect from a NAS.”
