Thecus N7510 7-Bay NAS
Here we get our first look at the Thecus N7510. The case is nearly identical to the N7700 Pro V2, Thecus's flag ship small business NAS. The N7510 uses brushed aluminum instead of painted aluminum and the look is stunning. Not that look really matters unless you want your NAS front and center for your media center.
With the door open, we see the seven drive bays. The drive bays have individual locks for security.
Inside we found SAS capable connectors, but we didn't test our unit with SAS HDDs.
I never realized how useful the front display was on NAS products until I tested a NAS without a digital readout.
The N7510 display is hidden under a one-way reflective surface. It's kind of like the one-way mirrors you see on Law and Order in the police station. With the NAS on the display shows IP addresses for the NAS and you can even use it to configure your NAS without a client PC connected to it.
The front left edge has a cluster of status LEDs that show power and activity. There are also two USB 3.0 ports as well as the power button.
Both sides are solid so all of the ventilation passes over the HDDs to keep them cool.
The back is where most of the magic happens.
The power supply is built in and has its own cooling fan.
The lower I/O ports are spaced well and allow for oversized connectors when needed. At the top are two gigabit Ethernet ports that can be teamed in the software to double throughput and reduce latency. Four USB 2.0 ports are on the back as well as a single eSATA port.
The N7510 includes new A/V options, HDMI display (with audio) and 2 channel audio out, line level input and mic input.
There is a slot at the top for add in cards but the N7510 doesn't use a PCIe 8x connector so it doesn't support 10GbE Ethernet. To get 10GbE you need to move to the higher cost N7700 Pro V2 or better.
Here we see the internal connector. It's a one lane PCIe port with another one lane port behind it.
The N7510 doesn't give us easy access to the DRAM slots. To get to the RAM slots to increase RAM capacity you must remove several components, which would likely void the warranty.
