Great NAS for the price

  • Excerpt: I own a total of three N5550 NAS servers now. They are easy to setup, reliable and have a nice web interface to manage them. You can't beat the price to get a 5 bay NAS system for under $. I use them with XBMC/Kodi to stream/store my library of music, movies and TV shows.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Reliable

A solid workhorse

  • Excerpt: I had to replace my old Thecus N5200 when it died, and the N5550 seems to be a significant step up. Unfortunately, the method used to store the data on the disks has changed, so I was unable to simply insert my old drives and have all the data available.
  • Pros: Easily Expanded, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Reliable

Thecus hardware seems pretty good. Thecus Tech Support is horrible.

  • Summary: On the 2 October, 2014, I bought my N5550 (3 disk, 12 TB, Raid 5) through an external web site (simplynas.com) in order save myself the time of setting up the raid 5 array and testing the whole shooting match. I've had the NAS in hand for a couple of weeks now.

A device with great potential--hobbled by lousy company support

Voice of Reason, Amazon

  • Summary: This product is a very good and stable NAS for me thus far. So, why then the two-star deduction? Because the support from Thecus is WORTHLESS. At least for me, I immediately hit a problem when setting up this contraption.

  • 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.
  • 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.

Well worth it.....Best bang for the buck!

Jimmy, Amazon

  • Summary: I did have to buy one return it, it would stop send & receive arp / hello / ack / icmp requests after 60-90 minutes, then the Ethernet port 0 & 1 would stop functioning. So I opened up a ticket with Thecus we diagnosed it to hell and back, was faulty hardware.
