The N4100 Pro offers a wealth of features and appealing specifications, including an AMD Geode LX800 500 MHz processor and 256MB of DDR400 memory. Each drive tray can accommodate up to a 1TB drive, bringing the maximum available storage space up to 4 terabytes.

 
When a compatible wireless USB adapter is connected to the NAS, it becomes a wireless access point. Currently the only adapters that are compatible are the 3Com 3CRUSB10075, Zykel G220USB, and PCI GW-US54mini.

 

PRODUCT COMPOSITION




The NAS arrived at the lab safe and sound, double boxed. Two pieces of sturdy foam and plastic covering protect it from any damage during shipping. Packaging is important when the contents are worth upwards of $400, and Thecus didn't disappoint.



A bag of accessories is also inside and it includes a quick start manual, power cable, Ethernet cable, driver CD, backup software CD, and a smaller baggie containing screws and keys for the drive trays. Everything needed to get up and running is provided right out of the box except hard drives. Those will warrant a separate purchase.
