Default Thecus N1200 Single-Drive NAS

The first-ever NAS we took a look at was a dual-bay Thecus N2100. We are returning to those roots today by now taking a look at the single-bay N1200. We were pleased to see that Thecus once again delivered a well-built NAS that's not only sturdy, but packs in numerous useful features as well.

Great review...
And it sounds like something I was looking for.
And if I read it right, you could connect via internet connection from anywhere in the world through FTP.
I was looking for a price in the review... I guess I can look it up at newegg or tigerdirect.
If I read it right, I could set up a security system and connect during the day and view what was recorded on cameras.

The Thecus N1200 can be found for a little under $200. Rather foolish of me not to include it in the review. Thanks for bringing it up.

You can setup your N1200 for remote administration as well. You will either have to own your own domain or sign up for a DynDNS account but it can be done according to the documentation for the NAS found on Thecus' website.

One thing to consider though is whether or not your router supports DynDNS. If it does, your good to go.
