For the SOHO user, NAS appliances have traditionally offered a plethora of features that would go unused leaving the home user with an expensive storage solution, sitting idle, draining on the power bill.

With the increased penetration into the SOHO market, Thecus took another route and as of October of this year, started offering embedded NAS appliances built for the SOHO market.

The N4560 is a four-bay NAS appliance catered towards the SOHO market. Within this NAS appliance, we find many of the same underlying components that were introduced with the N2560 we reviewed back in September, though the N4560 does entertain a few more features within its firmware.

Hardware Specifications and Pricing

Modern NAS servers have moved beyond data storage through a wire network. In order to get the most out of a NAS you need to look at the extra I/O hardware and the mountain of potential software features.


The N4560 is built on the Intel Atom CE5335 SoC which operates at 1.6GHz. Next to this we have 2GB of DDR3 with four hot-swappable drive bays, featuring SATA 6 GB/s support.

The rear I/O panel includes a single gigabit ethernet port, dual USB 2.0 ports, HDMI and SPDIF optical audio. The power supply of this unit is housed internally and peaks at 150w.

Pricing of the 4-bay Thecus N4560 at this time is set at $449.99 with market availability high and it comes with a two year warranty.

Growing up in a small farm town, tech wasn't around, unless it was in a tractor. At an early age, Tyler's parents brought home their first PC. Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
