The Thecus N2310 is really one heck of a NAS appliance, especially when you consider the price of this unit. At $159.99 MSRP, this might just be the most complete diskless solution available on the market. For comparison, the WD MyCloud EXII in its diskless form costs $199.99 and doesn't really offer the full on flexibility that the Thecus does.
Even with the complete plastic design of the N2310, I found the unit to be quite durable. No issues arose during testing with the drive trays or connections, and installation was rather simple.
Performance of the N2310 was rather good; it certainly isn't the quickest appliance we have tested, but then again, it's not slow by any means. The thing that keeps coming up when I think about the N2310 is the price; I mean how can you deny a true NAS system with Thecus OS 6 for 160 bucks? Especially if you have drives lying around that you could throw in this NAS and be up and running. Another feature that I do like with this NAS appliance is that Thecus changed up the finder software, which makes it much easier to setup and use. This adds to the user experience and is a plus in my book.
One thing that is important to understand with the N2310 is it is an entry-level appliance, so the high-end features that are found on a pricier unit won't be found within this unit. Things like IP surveillance, iSCSI, and TFTP support are non-existent, and the sleep mode in Thecus OS 6 hasn't worked since launch.
The MSRP for the N2310 tested here today is set at $159.99 with a two-year warranty.
