N2560 features a classy, elegant glossy-plastic enclosure. Adopting such style fits in perfect with home users. The Thecus emblem has been carved out of one side of the NAS and illuminates with a bright white LED when the unit is powered up.
The top-side of the unit has a small incision which encourages ventilation for internal components and HDD storage.

At the front of N2560, Thecus have given the unit a push-to-release door for the HDD installation and on the right of this door are a series of buttons, ports and LED indicators. Thecus have done a great job on the aesthetics and quality here and we’re pleased to see the inclusion of a USB 3.0 port at the front of the unit rather than the rear.

Around the back there is yet more functionality to take advantage of. Thecus have equipped N2560 with an 80mm cooling fan in the upper region to handle cooling for the internal components and HDD storage. Below this there are a number of features which include:
• SPDIF port
• HDMI port
• Factory Reset Button
• Gigabit LAN port
• Dual USB 2.0 ports
• DC power socket
• Spec Label – Serial Number
• Kensington Lock Option
N2560 appears to be a very capable NAS considering how dainty this unit is.
