Review: Thecus N2310 NAS

01/22, 12:03am

Affordable, two-bay setup offers a wealth of features without overwhelming users

For every computer user, there comes a point of critical mass in data storage.

Don't worry, because Thecus has an easy-to-use, frustration-free option with the N2310. Find out how it stacks up in our review.
