Thecus N4800 4-Bay Battery Backup NAS Review

Thecus N4800 NAS




We've seen several NAS makers try to tone down the appearance on the front of their NAS products, but we feel that is the wrong direction. Thecus has actually designed a very useful system that displays relevant information without the need of a PC. You can even use the menu / button system to setup your NAS and configure the RAID arrays.


USB 3.0 ports are now on the front of the NAS and provide much more bandwidth than the previous USB 2.0 ports.




Tucked away behind the front door is where you'll find the four HDD bays. The bays provide ventilation for the drives. A small vent to the left of the drives keeps the system components cool.




Both sides of the N4800 are the same. The solid construction adds strength to the NAS, a statement we can't claim with NAS products in this class made of plastic construction.




You'll notice there aren't any vents on either side. This keeps the noise level down and promotes better cooling for the disks.




Here we see the battery installed and the power brick connected. The cord has a special clip that keeps the cord from getting in the way of your other connectors. It is details like this that make Thecus one of the world's premier NAS builders.




Connectors ""o-plenty on the back. The new HDMI and audio line out increase functionality, but all of the normal ethernet, eSATA and USB ports are there as well.




When we talk about the current flagship SMB product from Thecus we can't walk away without mentioning the dual displays. The OLED is on the top and the standard LED is on the left side.
