Cons: I have a 2 bay unit that is not recognized by the system using the approved drives. Tech support will not respond to email. If you call you will be on hold for ever. Have units from Sans Digital , Zyxel and Buffalo with no problems
Summary: I have 4 SAMSUNG SPINPOINT 1.5 TB in it. I cannot hear a thing. It is easy to setup (you have to read the documentation BEFORE you start pushing buttons.) it plays nicely with Windows or Linux . There are tons of options and tools to use it. I also have the 5500 and I am contemplating buying the 7700.
Summary: I have four 2TB Samsung drives installed, giving me about 6TB of storage space. I can stream my media to my TV through wireless router and it works very well. You should upgrade memory that comes with this NAS, you will notice hike in performance. Overall I am very satisfied and recommend this drive!
Pros: This is great product, I don't really understand two previous negative reviews. Build of this NAS is top notch, is solid and substantial. I tried couple other NAS before deciding to keep this one (Synology and Qnap). Other products were flimsy and built from cheap plastic. Thecus is mostly metal, with nice bay locks.
Cons: Transfer speed can be higher, but not a big deal.
Summary: DO NOT WASTE YOU TIME ON THIS POOR PRODUCT! I got this product 2 weeks ago and was trying to set it up as RAID 5 for no avail. When I got it, i read some of the bad English documentation / videos. I have upgraded the device to its latest firmware and thought i'm good to go. I installed 4 x 1.5 TB hard drives that are in the supported list, set it up as RAID5 and started to wait.
Pros: Nice Case Interesting idea
Cons: 1) dropping RAID with no warnings 2) failing Hard drive where is it not true 3) slow Web UI 4) Fan runs fast 5) RAID build takes more than 30 hours 6) hard drive bays make of plastic and can easily break 7) bad documentations
Cons: Where to start, where to start... OK...the rear USB ports are non functional for external USB drives. Support said that this will be fixed in a new firmware upgrade. That was 3 firmware releases ago and still no resolution. The error logs generate nightly errors with the Rsync backup, which are horribly worded and provide absolutely no actionable items. We started receiving file system errors way too frequently. I went to run the file system checker utility, and it re...
Summary: I have never owned another NAS so if some of my cons are normal I apologize. I am more disappointed I have to redo my raid because windows software raid and this controller obviously don't match up, a little overwhelmed. I believe once I have it all setup I wont have any problems. Wish I could have bought at Newegg but I got such a great deal I had to go the other way.
Pros: 4 Bay Raid5 Solid design, doesn't feel cheap and love the looks.
Cons: The UI has some slow loading times. Seems like it takes a bit to be ready, like 1 or 2 minutes. But it does beep when ready. Seems a bit loud and runs about 2000rpm.
Excerpt: Beim Thecus 4100EVO Handelt es sich um ein NAS-Gerät (Network Attached Storage, dt. netzgebundener Speicher), der in das Netzwerk integriert wird und auf den - je nach Einstellung - von jedem Rechner im Netzwerk zugegriffen werden kann. Das ist erst mal die ganz grobe Beschreibung eines NAS, natürlich kann es noch etwas mehr, aber das ist von Hersteller zu Hersteller verschieden. Deshalb werde ich da jetzt nicht näher drauf eingehen.
Pros: 4 Festplatteneinschübe, gute Verarbeitung
Cons: VIEL zu laut ! VIEL zu langsam ! Entspricht nicht der Beschreibung
