Thecus N2050BD

Seeking to liven normally utilitarian world of backup drives, Thecus today launched the N2050. Sold as a media backup drive enclosure for avid music and video collectors, the box is one of the fastest and most flexible backup options for everyay users, according to the company. Two drives up to 500GB are stacked in the black-and-white case in a RAID array in either a faster striped setup or a safer mirror. An external SATA connector and bundled PCI card help the N2050BD reach its full speed; two USB 2.0 ports are also built-in for more universal access, including daisy-chaining extra drives or other peripherals.

The enclosure ships in Japan on March 1st for $163, while drives are sold separately to let owners buy only as much storage as they need. Thecus operates outside of Japan and may make the new drive available in North America.
