Thecus N4310 Review – Conclusion

Starting with the build quality of the N4310 we have an impressive unit. There are no large plastic panels here, instead we get a nice sturdy metal chassis. The finish is well applied and Thecus have even gone to the trouble of putting some nice covers over the screw heads… not something we would expect on a low cost machine. The drive caddy parts feel solid enough and the CPU and memory spec are appropriate for the target market.

As far as features go, all the key functionality we would expect is covered. Shared folders, media server, ftp and the like. Thecus have also included AES Data Encryption, hot swap functionality and cloud features too. For the OS, we are now on OS 6 from Thecus and it is a stable platform which is fairly responsive on this CPU/Memory configuration. There are nicer looking NAS OS solutions out there but as far as functionality goes, Thecus compare well with the Android/iOS apps offering some basic extra functionality.

Looking to performance, the NAS is rated for 100MB/s read and 75MB/s write. We saw figures of 95mb/s read 76MB/s write on larger files, dropping to 75/65 on folder copies of smaller files. Power use was approximately 30w under load, 21w at idle and 11w with the disks spun down.

So that brings us to price where the N4310 retails at £235 or around $270. That is very competitive for a 4-bay NAS and that, mixed with the good level of functionality and build quality wins the N4310 our value award.
