PRODUCT FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS
Specs on the N3200 Pro are very similar to those of its little brother, but as we'll see later on, Thecus has implemented some changes that improve the overall performance of the unit.
When a compatible wireless USB dongle is plugged in to the NAS, it can be used as a wireless access point. Currently the compatible adapters are the 3Com 3CRUSB10075, Zyxel G220USB, and PCI GW-US54 mini. Further instructions on how to configure wireless are provided in the manual.
RAID options have remained the same – choices are RAID 0, 1, 5, and JBOD.
Current pricing for the N3200 Pro is roughly $350 US at online retailers. Let's get the packaging open and see what your hard earned cash gets you.
Everything needed to get the NAS up and running is included in the box. A setup CD, Ethernet cable, power adapter, warranty card, and quick start manual are inside. A more detailed PDF manual is available for download from the Thecus website and I would recommend going over it to become familiar with your new product.
