“The Thecus N299 is, I think, just about the cheapest two-drive network storage box on the market today.
And it’s got a feature list as long as your arm.
Which suggests that it may be a little… quirky.
As it turns out, yes, it is. But I still think the N299 is worth buying.”

The Thecus N299 isn’t exactly a top of the line NAS device, but it certainly has a lot of charm. Aimed at consumers that aren’t interested in a top of the line storage server, but something that works simply. Dan gave it a run through, and found that some of the extras included really don’t work very well, but those don’t detract from the stack of useful extras that it is able to handle. A little bit of work, and you can get it to accept larger drives, or WiFi.
