In the middle of last year, I spent some time with the N5810 Pro, quite easily the best five-bay NAS that Thecus has ever made up to this point. In taking advantage of the success of the Pro model, Thecus has now released a non-Pro version removing the built-in UPS, halving the five Gbe ports down to two, and switching the 130W PSU up to a 200W unit making for a more budget-friendly option for the consumer.
With that said, at the heart of this NAS we still have the same J1900 SoC from Intel's Bay Trail lineup, and adding to this is 4GB of DDR3 in the SO-DIMM form factor. Connectivity is done through the two LAN ports on the back and three USB 3.0 ports, one strategically placed on the front and two on the rear. In addition to this unit's storage capabilities, this is one of just a few appliances from Thecus to have an HDMI port and this unit also has line-out audio capabilities as well.
The hardware specifications of the N5810 show the J1900 quad-core SoC and 4GB of DDR3 being at the heart of this NAS. Going down the list the memory is expandable to 8GB, again using the SO-DIMM form factor while LAN is powered by two Gbe ports on the rear of the unit. USB connectivity includes two USB 2.0 that are tucked in next to the LAN port while the USB 3.0 are split between the front and rear of the unit. Internally, the N5810 has a five-bay SATA backplane, the same one used in the Pro model.
MSRP of the Thecus N5810 is listed at $599.99 and a two-year warranty.
