Thecus has changed its strategy within the last couple years by not only focusing on the high-end NAS market but also paying some attention to the mainstream and mid-level categories, offering good products at affordable prices. Today, we will review the N4310, a mid-level NAS that can take up to four HDDs and, hence, supports the most popular RAID levels (0, 1, 5, 6, and 10). The same NAS exploits an AMCC SoC clocked at 1 GHz. It, in turn, is supported by 1 GB of DDR3 RAM. Many might feel as though 1 GB isn’t enough given even smartphones come with 2 GB or even 3 GB of RAM; however, a NAS for home users or a small office doesn’t need more in most cases. The CPU is what matters the most when it comes to transfer speeds and how snappy the interface is.
