Thecus is no slouch when it comes to producing affordable NAS solutions. They have been producing some of the best performing NAS at an unbeatable price for as long as I can remember. With the introduction of their Vision Series, Thecus has put the pressure on. Their N7510 NAS brings some interesting things to the table, 7 bays of storage loving goodness, great looks, and a fantastic price. Let’s see if it delivers more than just an odd number of drive bays.
The N7510 follows in the footsteps of some of their other recent releases, and this changes the game for Thecus. First, this NAS is absolutely beautiful to look at. The black steel and brushed aluminum construction stands out from the competition. The aluminum is thick and gives the NAS a polished appearance. The N7510 completes their Vision Series lineup of Atom powered NAS (2-bay N2800, 4-bay N4800 and N4510U and the 5-bay N5550) and with 7 bays, it is the king of its classroom.
The Thecus N7510 is a 7 bay tower style NAS powered by an 2.13 GHz Dual Core Intel Atom Processor that is partnered with 2GB of DDR3 RAM. The NAS features two Ethernet ports for connectivity with Link Aggregation, an HDMI port, two USB 3.0 ports, supports a ton of RAID configurations (RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and JBOD), measures it at (HxWxD) 320mm x 210mm x 270mm, and weighs a hefty 10.42Kgs.
Thecus brings the same technology they packed into their N5550 into a larger and far better looking package. The N7510 brings everything you are looking for in a Network Attached Storage device together into one easy to manage package. Things like sharing files, website features, iSCSI support, cloud features, and home theater functionality are all available in Thecus NAS OS5. Administration is flexible and easy enough for a novice with enough features for enterprise.
