Network storage is growing in popularity as the cost of ownership has come down over the last few years. Back when I first started testing and writing about NAS products, you were spending three or four hundred dollars for a Marvell-based two-bay unit that could barely touch 90 MB/s. In today's market, that same amount can get you a full range of suitable two and four-bay appliances, most boasting a quad-core Intel SoC and 4GB of RAM and sometimes more.
The latest entry into the tower series from Thecus comes in the form of the N4810. This solution first and foremost runs on the latest ThecusOS 7 with an updated user interface that now adds in photo station along with a renovated app center. Moving on, this is the first NAS to my knowledge to take advantage of DisplayPort, offering full 4K media playback directly from the NAS.
Of course, we still have functionality such as VPN, AES Encryption and RAID modes 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10. NAS solutions have also become a hub over the past few years, not only storing your data but connecting your data to the cloud. With that said, Thecus is supporting Amazon, Dropbox, and Elephant Drive out of the box along with the standard local backups via Windows and Time Machine for OS X.
Diving into the hardware specifications of this platform, we start with the very popular Intel Celeron N3160 CPU operating at 1.6GHz with boost capacity at 2.24GHz. Next to this, we have 4GB of DDR3 installed with room for another 4GB should you need it. The LAN interface is populated with dual gigabit connections supporting WOL. Unlike some of the base model appliances, the N4810 includes three USB 3.0 ports along with being the first to support the USB-C interface. You will also find dual display connectivity on the rear of the unit with HDMI and DisplayPort.
The MSRP of the four bay Thecus N4810 comes in at $459.99 with a two-year warranty.
