“the software is truly complete and the support from this point of view is impeccable, with guides, tutorials and all the information necessary to configure in all its aspects to the N2200XXX.”

Each year, Computer DIY selects the year's best products from representatives across the market according to their maturity as a product and outstanding application or use. Receiving editors' and users' continuous praise, Thecus's three big stars, the N2200XXX, N4200PRO, and N5200XXX take their thrones.

Media: Nordic Hardware | Country: Sweden

“Big Brother has many similarities with the little brother and feels like a better combination of features and performance, it is also [noticable because of] the price. N5200XXX are among the cheapest NAS devices with room for five disks…Again, the performance is very good and in many cases we managed to push up rates well over 100MB/s.”

Media: LaptopWorld | Country: Denmark

“All in all a very well equipped NAS, with good opportunities for connecting both front and back.”

Media: CHIP | Country: Hungary

“Its Atom D525 processor with 1 GB of DDR3 memory works, thanks to the device being equipped with two SATA drives. Data communications were measured at 100 MB/s​​, ie, essentially saturating the gigabit network (the two gigabit ports can be linked if more speed is needed).”


  • Extreme Speed
    With a power-house of a processor in the Intel Atom D525 running at 1.8GHz, the N2200XXX runs circles around the competition. Combined with 1GB of super fast DDR3 RAM, that means incredible transfer speeds and less time spent waiting.
  • Bad Block Scan Support
    Scan your disks to catch problems before they occur. Using detailed disk status updates, give your disks the perfect settings and environment to maintain data integrity and uninterrupted access.
  • 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.
  • Extreme Flexibility 
    Simplify your access to digital cameras, smart phones, electronic dictionaries, and much more. The N2200XXX supports SD/SDHC/MMC card readers for easy access to multimedia data.
  • Cutting-Edge Displays
    Monitor your Thecus N2200XXX Home NAS with a state-of-the-art LED screen. This keeps important system and disk activity information right where you need it with display technology that's ahead of its time.
  • 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.


The new XXX line of Thecus NAS is leading the way in catering to your needs. With Xreme power, Xtreme function, and Xtreme value, these Thecus NAS deliver. Whether it be a strong product for a budget price or a high-powered NAS for the tech-savvy, each model is extremely geared towards fitting you. From an extremely speedy 2-bay for your home office to an extremely powerful 8-bay rackmount for even the most demanding enterprise, Thecus XXX NAS are ready for you.

The new age of NAS requires serious products for serious needs. Time and again, Thecus has provided products that go a step beyond the needs of users, serious and casual, in terms of performance, functionality, and price. By first putting the Intel Atom D525 processor in our 4-bay N4200PRO and N4200Eco NAS, Thecus got a first hand look at what this processor is capable of. To give SMB and home power users what they need to get through massive quantities of data and large file transfers, they knew the Atom D525 in a 2-bay NAS was the perfect solution. To complement the D525, the Thecus N2200XXX Home NAS was beefed up with top-of-the-line DDR3 RAM for an extra boost in speed across the board. This combination made transfers over 90 MB/s possible in the N4200PRO, and the Thecus N2200XXX Home NAS runs even faster!

Another fantastic function on the Thecus N2200XXX Home NAS is the added connectivity of SD, SDHC, and MMC cards. Storing music, photos, and videos has never been simpler and faster with the built-in card reader.

Protection and efficiency are also fortified to give you piece of mind and allow you to make the most of your storage space. AES 256 bit RAID volume encryption and USB key functionality give you the power to take your data security to the next level. iSCSI transfers and iSCSI thin provisioning give you the connectivity of the fastest protocol known to man and perfectly distributed disk space for multiple users. With thin provisioning, users' allocated space contracts and expands automatically according their specific needs. These functions, among many others, put the Thecus N2200XXX Home NAS ahead of the competition and make it the perfect choice for home users with a flare for power.
