A 7-bay NAS isn't exactly the first place I would turn to find a high value NAS product. First off, there just aren't many 7-bay products on the market. With strong competition in the 6-bay and 8-bay sectors, you'd expect the best values to tip up in either of those areas. There are actually some really good buys in the 6 and 8-bay market, but none of them are as good as the new Thecus N7510.
The N7510 is a 7-bay NAS that costs less than $100 per bay. That said, the N7510 isn't a stripped down model either void of a graphic display, and it doesn't short you on RAM either. The fact is you get Thecus' standard display for easy setup and the N7510 ships with 2GB of DDR RAM, 1GB more than what ships with a majority of products from QNAP, Thecus' main competitor.
On the hardware size, the new N7510 is physically nearly identical to the N7700 Pro V2, Thecus' top SMB/Home User NAS. The N7700 Pro V2 uses a Core2 Duo processor and increases the DRAM to 4GB, enough power to handle more than 64 client systems in a multi-client office.
The N7510 that we're looking at today uses an Intel Atom processor with 2GB of DRAM and is designed for office environments smaller than 64 users.
