At 132 x 88 x 63 mm, or 5.2″ x 3.4″ x 2.5″ for you imperialists the Thecus N0204 is tiny; a paperback book tends to be 110 mm x 178mm or 4.33″ x 7.01″ or if that doesn’t put it into context, then the can of Bud Light at the end of Legit Reviews article will probably help.  It houses a pair of 2.5″ drives, perfect for those SSDs, and can transfer data via Ethernet or USB 2.0 and even has a USB port to hook a printer up to.  The OXFord 810DSE processor that powers this miniature storage device really can’t keep up with the maximum transfer rate of a pair of SSDs in RAID-0 but it does a fairly good job without needing much power or taking up much space.

“The Thecus N0204 miniNAS is said to be the world’s smallest fully-featured NAS device. Measuring in at just 132 x 88 x 63 mm exterior, one could easily mistake the N0204 as a regular external hard drive. However, look closer and you will see a very capable two-bay NAS device that fits right in the palm of your hand. Thecus manages to make this work by using two 2.5” SATA hard disks, providing up to 1TB of storage. That means that this device uses laptop SATA hard drives or 2.5″ Solid-State Drives (SSDs), which has some pros and cons as you could imagine. At just $149.99 plus shipping, the Thecus N0204 miniNAS also just happens to be the least expensive 2-bay network attached device sold at e-tailers like among others…”
