5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Works with Vista….Web base setup. We Test a failed drive scenario and installed new drive and the rebuilding process took under 25 min's. Mapping drive works great and data transfers are at a good speed. I have 3 notebooks and 2 desktops opening files and adding changes to the files on the NAS no problems have been reported. Will post news of any changes in three months.

Cons: Private folder sharing a little complex but very useful, (advance user need only to use this feature not intended for home or client users) Setup.

Other Thoughts: Great product experience for my company and we will keep you posted if any changes come..

1 out of 5 eggsBuy Something Better

Pros: It seems like the setup utility is very simple to use, but it's tough to say because it doesn't recognize my drives.

Cons: It doesn't work. I ordered this NAS because it claimed to support two (1TB) SATA drives, but that hasn't been my experience. I have two Seagate 7200.11 drives in 1.5 (although I've tried 3) Gb/s mode. It doesn't recognize the drives. Thecus documentation is terrible. The manual has no troubleshooting section. It gives the same basic instructions in many different languages. The same data could be conveyed with pictures in fewer pages. The Thecus "knowledgebase" appears to have only one article about configuring one's email preferences. Tech support is amazingly snotty (I'll post the email trail on my livejournal).

Other Thoughts: Bottom line: spring for a real NAS and save yourself the headache. The incremental cost for a real NAS with hot swappable drives and proper support is worth it.

3 out of 5 eggsThecus N2100 Good for the price

Pros: Twin NICs, 10/100/1000 Ethernet, RAID, USB 2.0, one or two drive support, Web Based, good tech support.

I was looking for a NAS for under $300 that supported Ethernet, finding one with twin Ports was very nice. To top it off, they’re Gigabit ports. Now add, RAID, browser access, user and groups, and you’ve got quite a bit of equipment for under $300.

I stuck in a 250GB drive, installed some users accounts, created a Public folder with public access, mapped a network drive to it, and was happily transferring files to the N2100 in no time flat. I did find the browser based access adequate but cumbersome, especially, if you’re trying to use it to upload large amounts of files at the same time. I later tried to map a drive to non-public folder, but was unable to.

The transfer rates weren’t bad for a NAS. I get around 600MB Per Minute during writes, and almost a 1,000M.B.P.M. during reads. Unfortunately, this really doesn’t take full advantage of the GB Ports.

Cons: Now the bad news. Besides sub-Gigabit port speeds, the N2100’s Media connection, at least by my experience, does not support Xb…360s. Also, one of the main reasons I purchased this unit was for secured network storage. When I create non-public folders, and try to map network drives using users and passwords I created in the N2100, I am unable to create the map drive. However, if the folder is set to Public, then I have no problems. On the plus side, their tech support has been very helpful, and we are still working on the problem. So, I may be writing back with an update and some good news.

Other Thoughts: If you want a NAS with twin GB Ethernet Ports, USB 2.0, RAID, One or Two HD Support, Browser Access, Media Access, User and Group Support, and don’t mind some issues with media access and mapping drives, at under $300, the N2100 is a good choice.

5 out of 5 eggsIt really works!

Pros: I installed Twonky module and:
1. Streams MP3's, Video, & Inet Radio to my Playstation 3!

Comes with
1. iTunes displays all the mp3's on it just like my iPOD!
2. Small Form Factor
3. Two GigE ports
4. Three USB2.0 ports
5. Pretty quiet for a 2drive nas.
6. Many security features.

Cons: 1. Pretty Quiet but not silent. I have to say in its defense however, it's the Quietest NAS out there to date.

2. Quickstart Manual is missing important IP Address info. Pop the battery out and back in to reset the CMOS before you plug it in. Make sure your home network can talk to so the Thecus program can find your device (most home networks are so set your subnet mask to to support this without needed to change IP's.

Other Thoughts: After reading the negative reviews of the D-Link DNS 323 I decided to spend a few extra dollars on a Thecus N#### unit that would do more, was upgradable, and had a community of unix guru's making mods for it. It works great, fast as heck, and will change the way you use your computer forever.
