The Thecus N5200XXX
Here we get our first look at the new Thecus N5200XXX. This case design was first used on the N5500 product in 2009. End users responded to the new compact design so well that Thecus is now using it on the N5200XXX. Here we see the unit with the front door closed.
By pressing on the door you release the door locking mechanism and the door opens revealing the power button, front USB port and drive trays. The door also acts as a dust filter keeping your drives and processor cooling heatsink clean of debris.
On the inside of the NAS we see the backplane and further back the large fan that keeps your drives and system cool. The N5200XXX does not support SAS drives, but will work with solid state drives in either 2.5" or 3.5" form factors.
The NAS can be configured via the software from your PC or through the front display and command buttons. The display also shows your NAS' status while the unit is operating.
The N5200XXX lights up with a blue glow when the NAS is powered on. The front display also lights up blue and rotates system status information.
The system mainboard, processor and RAM are on this side of the NAS and here you can see that Thecus has provided ventilation for these components.
All but one of the connectors is located on the back of the N5200XXX. Here we see the dual Ethernet ports, eSATA, USB and power connectors.
