Throughout the last three years at TweakTown, I have yet to see a NAS appliance as downright interesting as the unit we have here today. It doesn't come as much of a surprise, due to my past role as the consumer NAS editor, but as things have changed, I now get to look at the Thecus N5810 Pro.
The Thecus N5810 Pro is for all intents and purposes a storage based NAS appliance, and while it does have cloud capability, you will see once we get to the images on the next page why I say it's a storage appliance. If I haven't said it already, the Thecus N5810 is downright gorgeous to look at; it reminds me, for some reason, of industrial storage or what industrial storage should look like. The front of the unit features black metal with a small LCD screen at the bottom and when you look at the drive tray a bit of chrome plating stares back at you.
Internally, this unit shares a similar design that has become quite popular with vendors. The base of this unit comes from the Intel Bay Trail platform featuring the Intel J1900 SoC. Thecus has paired this with 4GB of DDR3, while additional connectivity is made available via the unit's three USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports, HDMI and a lineout round out the units audio/video capabilities.
Above, we have the full system specification pulled from the Thecus website. Adding to the specifications we mentioned above, Thecus has outfitted the N5810 Pro with a total of five RJ45 Ethernet ports that all support gigabit transfer rates and AUTO-MDIX. The power supply for this unit is internal to the design as is the built-in mini UPS that can power the unit in case of a power loss event.
