Benchmarks - Power Consumption and Acoustics


Our power consumption testing involves running the power supply from the NAS through the output on our Kill-A-Watt meter. Results are recorded at several intervals including idle, peak and after the drives enter standby.

Above, we have our results from the power consumption testing. The first thing you may notice is drive-standby measuring in at the same as our idle recording. This is due to the feature currently not working in the latest build of Thecus OS 6 build 208.


Peak power consumption was measured at 24 watts during our workload testing.


Acoustics are measured from a distance of one foot with our IEC Type II Sound Level Meter.

Upon initializing the N2560, we measured a peak fan noise of 38.7 dBA.


From there the NAS calmed down and maintained a 32.4 dBA operation.
