Review of Thecus N2310 NAS Server

Conclusion


 

The Thecus N2310 is meant to be a budget friendly NAS solution and it certainly is coming in at under $200.

The N2310 performs better in some cases than much more expensive NAS boxes which is certainly impressive. Transfer speeds are fast, much faster than I expected a budget priced box to be.

Thecus included some commonly used apps like Plex and Pizza for you and you can easily add more. The N2310 does have a limited number of apps but the Thecus appstore is growing with more being added all the time.

Thecus does a great job of supporting their NAS boxes with frequent firmware updates so the box will stay useful for some time to come surely.

The box can be noisy at times and I don’t like the fact that you can’t turn the drives off, but I think I could live with those things when you take the price into consideration. You can’t expect high end features from a budget priced box, but it does have a comparable feature set.

The N2310 is easy to setup and Thecus even includes DDNS so you can login remotely to access your files.

The N2310 is a great entry level NAS server, especially if you have a couple spare hard drives floating around.

The N2310 can be used for a lot of things, general storage and streaming media are the most common probably, but you can also access it remotely so your files can stay safe at home but yet you can still get to them quickly and easily. You can just do so much with a NAS box that you can’t with local storage, they’re great for home users or even business users.

Overall I think the Thecus N2310 is a great value for the price. You get some great features and decent speeds for less than half the price of NAS boxes with similar performance numbers.
