Pros
very fast, responsive, lotsa theccus apps to load on the nas for more use's and productivity depending what your into
Cons
not theccus' fault but hdds are expensive lol
- linux onscreen display when you plug the thing to a monitor could a little more responsive.
Summary
- been using since sept 2014
- lot's of theccus apps to load on the nas for more use's and productivity depending what your into
- filled it with initially 2x 4TB wd red drives, was running out of space so I bought a third, and migrated to raid 5.
- UI seems easy to use.
- plex server runs great.
- auto power on/off setting works nicely
- catch it on sale though!

Pros
Inexpensive, Quiet, Cool.

It's a 5 bay NAS with an Atom CPU, and 2GB of RAM for 400 bucks.
Cons
Involved interface, drive bay door is cheap plastic.
Summary
I got this to replace a NAS I had bought on the cheap a few years ago that was showing signs of finally dying. So, in comparison, this beast is much more machine than I was used to. Drive installation was straightforward, and setup was relatively easy if you go online to the Thecus website and go from the manual there.

There are a lot of feature to get used to, but it runs cool and quiet, and for the price NCIX is selling it for, this thing is a steal.

Pros
Fast, easy to setup. $150 discount was awesome.
Cons
A little limited in terms of expandability in terms of modules. This is supposed to be addressed by the new OS6 soon to come out. Had to do a hard poweroff and it took 2 days to rebuild the volumes - 5 x 3 TB drives. Probably on par with other systems tho.
Summary
Really enjoying this machine. Looking forward to years of service from it.

Pros
Build quality, speed, price/value/performace ratio especially when it's at a discounted price below $450
Cons
Documentation could be better but not a big deal if you have some knowledge of networking e.g. WAN/LAN, link aggregation, iSCSI, etc.
Summary
The have zero problem so far with the N5550. It's been running 24/7 since it was purchased during the boxing week with 4 Seagate Constellation in a RAID 5 array. Read / write throughput have been excellent between 80-110 MB/s. This is super fast compared to my 4 year old but reliable ReadyNAS NV+ ~ 20-25 MB/s. The ReadyNAS is now a backup for the N5550. Overall I am very happy with my purchase from a price / performance perspective. Make sure you upgrade the firmware to the later .08 version right away as mine came with the old .03 release, which might have stability issues when transferring a large amount data.

Pros
Fast & reliable
Cons
Interface can be tricky
Summary
This is a great NAS. It is very quick and I have not encountered any slowdowns or performance degredation. Consistantly able to max out 1GB LAN connection. Feature set for modules could be improved through better interfaces.

Pros
Inexpensive, Fast transfer rates between PC, lots of BIOS features, E-Sata, looks cool and runs quite.
Cons
it's a little complicated for the average user. Shared folders that can't be deleted, moving or copying data between folders on the same NAS is quite slow?
Summary
I bought 2 of these NAS devices and so far been very happy with them. I am running 5 3TB western digital RED drives in one and 4 3 TB western digital Red in the other. I have everything running RAID 5 an So far...No issues at all.

Pros
Easy to use
Fast transfer speeds
Tons of features
Good price
Cons
Front door is flimsy, but don't expect to open very often
Summary
Have had no problems with this NAS box. Was simple to set up with 4 3TB WD Red hard drives in RAID 10. Excellent transfer speed via the eSATA or USB 3. Had it up and running on my home network in a about 15min. For the price I think it is excellent.

Pros
5 Drive Bays.
Good extra features.
Cons
Unreliable.
Slow support.
Summary
Got this and put in 5 HDs off of their HCL. I would NEVER buy this again. Totally unreliable, from misreported drive failures to it's inability to bulk copy/move data without crashing.
Until they have resolved the firmware issues with this box, I'd stay far, far away from it.


Shortly after writing this, Thecus released a firmware update. The box has been rock solid after this update. I am ONLY using it as a NAS though... no other modules active.

Pros
Small, Light, Slick looking, holds larger drives (4TB max so far), HDMI port and audio ports!, 6 USB ports!! (One is USB3.0 on the front only) It makes cool beeping noises when it's happy"beep Beep BEEP!" and for what it is it really is solid and never let me down.
Cons
First one was a Lemon... Found that out after 7 months of Tech Support tickets and paid for shipping; but it was returned in 4 weeks to me and has been solid ever since. Tech Support does not seem to be their strongpoint but Customer Service was. Cabinet door is flimsy (but has not broken with much use in 2 years so far) and the LCD menu buttons are a bit annoying to use but you only have to use them onceSometimes the noises are annoying and turning them off has not helped yet. The screen on the front is always bright so I taped over mine.. much better! it seems a little slow overall but reading the other posts, I have to agree I get 1GB/s easy.. I guess I am picky. Buying drives for it was expensive. With shipping it back to them once and drives, about a $5000 venture but I have 20TB of space and most of that is used, so can't complain too much :D
Summary
$5000 of pure network satisfaction! 20TB and mine runs all the time. I love it, it changed my life! Multi-use from a DJ to a household server and everything in between. so far, it's solid! Have funThis review was modfied by poster b 01-20-14 02:38 PM
