Thecus W2810PRO review, a NAS device running Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials

I have a NAS at home since I have like...HUGE amounts of data I have collected over 22 years in the business. 

I believe this article is geared more towards the SMB's but I know some of you computer junkies out there might be interested in it also. 

Looks cool. 

The market for devices that allow you to control your own data is hot right now. Sure, the available-anywhere cloud (aka: Internet) is an extremely convenient place to store your files, but for many people, the idea that a third party has access to your data and is responsible for its security just doesn't sit well. In other cases, there may be data that you don't want available on the Internet at all (just ask Jennifer Lawrence).

In the past, we've looked at various NAS devices that have their own custom-tailored operating systems. While we find these extremely convenient, many people lament the fact that they can't put a "real" operating system on the device. In addition, because the vendors opt for ease of use, power users are occasionally frustrated because they can't do everything they want.

Then there's the case where the NAS vendor is great at hardware but just can't seem to make the custom OS easy to use. That was definitely the case when I looked at the Thecus N7710-G, a device with 10Gb/sec speed, but a terrible user interface. So what did Thecus do to help remedy the situation? They released the W2810PRO, a product that uses Microsoft's Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials (just rolls off the tongue) as the OS.
