We have recently reviewed a lot of NAS devices, and now it's Thecus's turn. Their new N4100EVO is a relatively affordable and very comprehensive NAS for its £240 price tag. Despite its relatively low price, this is a model that is pretty fully-featured. The compact little box has a door on the front, behind which the four hard drive trays are located. The trays are equipped with individual locks. On the front you will find an on/off switch, a USB connection and a display. The latter is a very practical feature to have, since it lets you see what the IP address is for example without having to use a computer. The performance and the noise production however are disappointing.
Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
