Thecus N4200 Pro 4-Bay NAS Review
Chris Hadley / 5 years ago
In the UK, the number of SOHO and SMB users is on the increase and at the centre of any business and even the home is data. This can be in the way of photos, music, video, databases and general files. But as we touched on in our QNAP NAS review, centralising all this data to one point can be costly and with the markets as they are today and the cost of energy on the rise, the need for a economic and financially viable option is on the increase.
In the UK, there are a number of companies that offer up network attached storage and Thecus are one of the biggest brands in the market in this segment, and that’s why it made sense for us to work with them, as they offer some of the best, and most popular products around, for users wanting a NAS box.
NAS boxes come in all shapes and sizes, varying from a simple single bay drive for the entry level end of the consumer market right upto the huge rack mounted 16 bay systems that would be found in larger businesses and corporations. In the SOHO and SMB market though, a rack mounted solution is not necessarily going to be the first port of call as for instance the budget for purchasing a NAS may not be as great and their running costs are much greater in the long run. So keeping this review focussed on the lower end of the scale with the N4200 Pro that we have here today to look is where we will be leading on.
