Thecus N2200 2xSATA (3.5"/2.5") RAID 0,1,JBOD NAS Gigabit LAN Server with 256mb RAM & 4xUSB

Seems a decent price for a hot swappable two bay NAS.

The N2200 is ideal for storing your entire collection of digital media. With capacity for two 3.5 SATA hard disks, the N2200 can easily accommodate up to 4TB of storage. For added flexibility, the N2200 is equipped with combo disk bays, which means it can also accommodate 2.5 SATA hard disks! To keep your data safe, the N2200 also offers several RAID modes including RAID 0, 1 and JBOD. If you need to change out your hard disks, the N2200s hot swap, hot plug, and auto-rebuild capabilities make swapping out hard disks a snap. Wondering how your N2200 is doing? Get system status updates at-a-glance with the N2200s easy-to-read LCD, which displays intuitive icons to show you system information including hard drive access, LAN connectivity, and USB copy status. And because high tech shouldnt mean high difficulty, the N2200 even comes with a handy Thecus® Smart Utility that not only backs up your files, but also allows you to install the N2200 with a single click! Managing your own NAS server just doesnt get easier than this

Pros
* Low power usage
* Reasonable performance
* Low price
* Plenty of features
* Compact
* Support for Wifi dongle


Cons
* External power adapter
* Can't upgrade a single disk into a RAID 1 array
* Web interface pauses a lot to load
* Few options for advanced users

8.5 The N2200 is an attractively priced NAS which still performs at acceptable levels. This is specially true for the intended market, which likely has many small files (office documents, holiday pictures, etc) instead of huge files. Being both compact and silent and using little power you won't know it's there and it's hardly a problem to keep it on 24/7. Even if this is so you can schedule the times it should turn on and off.
The downside of the simplicity is for the advanced users who wish to modify it, past the module system there is no room to customize the N2200. To be honest, I can't say this is a real issue since we already established that such users are not the target market."

I just got my one of these this week with a single 2TB drive (for now). Pretty good so far. Web interface is perhaps a little clunky, but certainly not awful. Just struggling to configure my stupid netgear router to allow HTTP access to it now...

I'm not sure. It's certainly not as big as company, but their/his feedback as a retailer on google looks good and kosher. I'd be inclined to give the smaller company a go as it's cheaper and use my credit card as back up.

I didn't say any different! I was talking about the other company which was supposedly not good enough to buy from.
