Speed without compromise; that is Thecus' slogan for their latest enterprise NAS servers, the N7700 and N8800. These new products are a step up from the SOHO N5200 Pro we reviewed a year ago and are geared specifically for the large office, mid level enterprise market. Thecus has a long history of making NAS Servers for both consumer and enterprise markets and their cost has always remained within reach for enthusiasts looking to add enterprise hardware to their home network.
Today we will be focusing on the Thecus N7700 model, a 7 drive NAS server that has more features than a single office could hope to take advantage of. Thecus has worked very hard to ensure that every possible check box can be ticked when it comes to the features of their products.
Newegg currently lists the N7700 at a hair under 1,100 U.S. Dollars, the same price as their nearest competitors 4, 5 and 6 drive NAS servers. At this time the N7700 is the only 7 drive NAS server at or even close to this price point; the largest capacity at the best price is where Thecus is placing this model. Let's not play around in the intro; it is time to check out the specifications of the robust NAS server.
