Excellent NAS

  • Excerpt: This NAS is perfect for a small business or any home professional who would want to access data from more than one computer. This model can take up to 5 hard drives (HDs)but you could create a RAID with as little as 2 HD's.

  • 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.

Best for the money

  • Excerpt: This NAS is simply unbeatable for the money. No other machine offers the same hardware for anything close in terms of dollars. Having said that, I am using this nas for home purposes. I have seen some people complaining that it cannot serve multiple users at the same time well.

  • Excerpt: I purchased two of these units with 5 3tb Western Digital RED drives. The unit is easy to install drives in. However it appears that Thecus didn't properly secure the interal flash drive used for the base OS.

  • Excerpt: Only owned a week but so far this is a solid NAS. I migrated from an IoMega IX2 and this one is faster, larger and has more options at a super economical price.

  • Summary: Really enjoying this machine. Looking forward to years of service from it.
  • 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.
