Today we are looking at a NAS system from Thecus, the N4200ECO. This product seems to be tagged as a ‘green' solution with the ‘ECO' moniker, although the company certainly haven't skimped on the hardware. The N4200ECO is shipped loaded with a 1.8GHz Intel Atom D525 processor with a generous 1GB of DDR3 memory – it can support up to four 2.5 or 3.5 inch drives. Even better – it has seen recent price drops, and is now available for £318 inc vat in a bare bones configuration.
Thecus face stiff competition on the market today. Synology have a plethora of models available, targeting all sectors from a basic home network to a fully fledged performance oriented business audience.
There is no doubt that the N4200ECO is relatively inexpensive. The diskless unit we received for review won't break the bank and there are other options available with hard drives already installed. A 4TB model is available for around £580 inc vat.
The N4200ECO 4 bay can support 3TB drives, for a total of 12TB of storage.
