Thecus N7700PRO 7 Bay NAS Review

Verdict

ExcellenceThecus N7700PRO is a well specified NAS server with innovative touches that only a seasoned storage manufacturer would design and deploy, the inclusion of a 10GbE optional port is champion, they also offer a 10GbE add-on card in their own brand, the commitment is huge on their part, the performance of the system totally blew us away, the fastest NAS in our labs to date. On its way to supremacy it chalked up points in every category including value for money and staked its claim for becoming an outright winner for our excellence award.

Editor review

The N7700PRO is a 7-Bay NAS that delivers bleeding edge performance that will knock your socks off.

The N7700PRO is a 7-Bay NAS that delivers bleeding edge performance that will knock your socks off. Features include the 10GbE optional card that will allow you to further increase your network bandwidth for optimized data transfers. Total capacity is 14TB currently based on 2TB SATA II drives, and this will increase as larger drives come on the market. Thecus N7700 PRO turned in the best results we have had in the Video HD Playback, whilst in the Office Productivity it fared very well, and this was rounded off with one of the highest scores we have seen in the Copy, Backup and Restore categories, clearly this is a NAS with a superb overall balance that will appeal to a wide audience be it business or home users.

PROS:

  • Great Performance
