Thecus N2810 NAS Review – Software

Thecus N2810 NAS Review – Conclusion

One of the first things we always find with Thecus devices is that they are very solidly built and the N2810 is no different. There is that plastic panel on the front which gives the device some style however elsewhere the NAS is metal and feels very sturdy. It also has a much more industrial look than the competition, something which helps it stand out in this marketplace. If we had one issue on the hardware front it is the fan used, it is noticeable and so in quiet environments could be a problem. Stored away in a cabinet, or behind the TV etc its probably fine but on a desk next to the user, probably audible.

Performance was good on the N2810 with the OS always feeling responsive, transfer speeds exceeding 100MB/s and HD media playback working without issue. Streamed and via HDMI. Speaking of media, it would have been nice if Thecus could have built in and bundled a remote control.

Installation of drives in the NAS is super easy and we very much like that the OS is ready to go shortly after first power on. Its a little different from most NAS devices which walk us through a setup which can take 10minutes or more. Here we boot and then decide how to proceed. It was also nice to see that Thecus keep the OS very bare. We dont get any Apps forced on us that we dont need and overall maintenance of the OS is simple. Auto-firmware updates, good monitoring tool and responsive interface.

Summary: Other NAS devices offer some quirky or unique features however the N2810 does all the essentials very well. Solid build, nice industrial look, easy to use/responsive OS and plenty of options for expanded functionality via apps.

    Hi, what about HEVC h.265 4K 60fps HDMI decoding? Did you stressed this NAS with such kind of test?

  2. I second Giocas’ question. Also would love to know how well it handles Plex Media Server duties (streaming and transcoding).

    Remote would be sweet.
    Where is the OS installed? Apps? Onboard flash?
