Thecus N4510U Rackmount NAS Review

Thecus N4510U Rackmount NAS Review

It's been a while since we published a rackmount NAS review, but with our multi-client office test proven, more product reviews are coming soon.

Introduction

The N4510U is Thecus' entry-level rackmount NAS server for small business use. The system includes Thecus' award winning OS 5 software stack that ensures you have access to every software package in the Thecus library.

 

The N4510U actually has two different versions. The first is the model we're looking at today, model number N4510U-S with a single PSU. Thecus also sells a dual PSU model, N4510U-R. Our model also uses the current front face plate. Thecus will soon have a new face plate for the N4510 model name, but we're not sure what changes Thecus made.

 

Thecus' rackmount products are all all-inclusive unlike many other rackmount NAS. The unit ships with drive rails for 4-post racks. Nothing irritates me more than getting in a new NAS and finding that I can't properly install the NAS in a rack. Making matters worse, some rack rail systems cost as much as $200! Thecus includes rails with all of their rackmount NAS and we applaud them for doing so.

 

Let's take a look at the hardware specifications, then the software and finally run performance tests.
