The Thecus N0204 miniNAS is an ultra-compact miniature NAS unit that features two 2.5” SATA drives, allowing for a total capacity of 1TB. Once connected by either Gigabit LAN or optional 802.11b/g WiFi, the unit can be used for UPnP media streaming; for operating an FTP, Bit-Torrent, or iTunes server; and for network printing via a USB-connected printer. Plus, an entire household can tap into the N0204 to share photos and other media files. If both SATA drives are filled, then users have the additional option of setting up a RAID configuration for enhanced data security. As for administration, it’s all web-based and can be accessed from any computer, regardless of the operating system.
