General Performance

The N4910U-R same as the N4800Eco is made by Thecus. A lesser known manufacturer that Synology or QNAP, there always other brands out there like Thecus which are often innovative if less user-friendly to those without experience of a NAS device. You might not get the same user experience comparing with other better known brands. But sometimes you might not need it. This model comes with new DDR4 technology random access memorty (RAM). DDR3 used to work at 800 MT/s (or Millions of Transfers per second) and some went as high as 2133. DDR4, starts at 2133 MHz. The increased speed means an overall increase in bandwidth. Unlike the N4800Eco this box has the Intel® Skylake Core-i3 6100 3.7GHz Dual Core processor. Another key difference between the N4800Eco is RAM. N4910U-R arrives with 4GB RAM. The N4910U-R 4GB RAM compared with N4800Eco 2GB is clearly weaker.
