The Thecus N7700

Thecus N7700 7 Drive NAS Server

I have to admit that the N7700 is one of the better looking NAS servers on the market. On the left side there is a brushed aluminum cover where the LEDs, power button and USB ports are located. The rest of the front is covered with an aluminum door that hides the drive sleds.

On the bottom a mirror window covers the LED display that you can use to configure the N7700. The system also displays status updates.

Here we see the seven drive sleds with the door open.

On the left side we see that the brushed aluminum carries over to the side.

For me the back is where all of the real action is. Here we see the LAN and WAN ports, one to connect the NAS to the internet and the other to connect to your company's network, if you chose to use the N7700 as a gateway device.

At the top Thecus has included a PCIe port for expansion and there are also two USB ports that can be used for printers or storage devices. In the middle of it all Thecus has placed a serial port that will allow the N7700 to communicate with a battery backup device.
