Thecus N2200EVO NAS review

A few observations :

It’s small and silent.

Power consumption is 20W in idle and 36W max.

Creating a initial RAID1 from two WD RED 3TB drives took 12 hours.

To use the USB Copy option (copy data from a USB stick) you need to plug it in the back USB port.

Network speed

– reading from Windows from SAMBA share : 50MB/s
– writing from Windows to SAMBA share : 20MB/s
– writing on NFS share with SYNC ON : 500kB/s. Test run from an Esxi server running a ghettoVCB backup script.
– writing on NSF share with SYNC OFF : 14MB/s. Test run from an Esxi server running a ghettoVCB backup script.


For SSH access the username is root and the password it the administration password. Be sure to have SSH enabled in System Network -> SSH


1. The device can use rsync to backup it’s data on another system.

2. To use rsync from client computers (Linux rsync client, DeltaCopy for Windows, etc) you need to enable the rsync target server option from System Network -> Rsync Target.
You will be limited to one user, the one you define in the option above.
However you can use different directories, present on the NAS.
