    Headlines - Thecus to expand its range of storage solutions at COMPUTEX '08

    There's a little over a week to go until COMPUTEX '08, and Thecus has began to tease us with news of six new storage solutions and a Thecus miniPC.

    Nice!

    Looking forward to the N7700 and N8800... price depending of course. Would be better if it had a C2D in there though, like the new ReadyNAS

    So is this evidence of Thecus listening to customer requests? http://forums.hexus.net/thecus-care-...8-bay-nas.html

    I was planning to buy another N5500B PRO

    But now I will wait for the N8800 and see if it is payable.

    Are you guys going to be paying Thecus a visit then?

    I'd really like to see what these new units are like. Although they are really going to have to keep an eye on price if they are to persuade people not to just build a big server from comodity parts and use FreeNAS or something.

    £500 for the N5200 is one thing, but if that scales, then there is no way i'd be paying £800 for the N8800. Especially not for a 2GHz Celeron.

    The M3800 looks rather nice.

    The N7700 is the same spec as the N8800 2U rackmount device, with the exception of it having 8 bays... and being rackmounted.

    They're basically the exact same tech inside, just different chassis.

    I was going to spring for another N5200PRO but now I'll definitely wait - the 7700 would make a brilliant Squeezecenter host with endless storage and my N5200PRO can be relegated to serving the media center etc. Any idea when the N7700 is going to hit the market & anyone have any specs re power consumption of the 7700?

    What's C2D...Core 2 Duo? That'd make the 7700 very power hungry with 7 HDDs loaded. As it is I believe the ReadyNAS PRO consumes 115W with 6 x 500GB drives. Also, by the time we start talking C2D for a NAS it'd be a hell of a lot cheaper to build your own server/ NAS and you'd then have the added benefit of being able to do with it whatever you wanted in terms of software, addons etc.

    I'd be very interested in seeing what the power consumption stats would be on the 7700 with 7 bays loaded.

    it's always a hell of a lot cheaper to build your own multi drive NAS boxes

    It just depends on if you want to or not.

    I didn't when i got my two N5200Pros, but I probably will when it comes to replacing them. But by then I should have the space to have a decent server.... and maybe a 19" rack to house it in
