The N2560 is a 2 bay NAS from Thecus. It is quite attractive and should fit in either a computer room or near your TV.
Performance of the NAS is good with very low power consumption.
In terms of hardware and design, it looks great in my personal opinion. Who can really argue about the Thecus N2560’s looks? While it may not be the best choice of materials, it attracts some attention in comparison to its competitors. Whether you place it in your backroom where your other computers are or in the family room with your TV plugged in, the Thecus N2560 can fit in. As well having both HDMI out and a digital audio output means the N2560 can integrate easily into your home electronics. It does away with the industrial look ASUSTOR and QNAP likes to use. Unfortunately, the glossy surface alone is prone to scratches and the entire body, due to its plastic construction, could easily snap. This makes the Thecus N2560 a “black box” (Or in this case, a white box) solution that allows users to easily plug and play. All they have to do is pop in the drives, plug in the Ethernet and power cable, and hurray, it is done. Upgradeability of parts is understandably not a feature of the N2560, and majority of users will not need to worry about it. For the home user, you will find the Thecus N2560 delivers competitive file performance, emits very little amounts of noise, and is green friendly to boot. Obviously, everyone wants their device to be faster, but the N2560 is still able to hold its own in comparison to the ASUSTOR AS-202TE, a similar device with similar internals but slightly slower performance results.
