A solid workhorse

20 February 2015
  • 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.

  • Summary: I purchased two for off-site server backups based on the price and other reviews. The WD Red NAS drives (3TB) worked fine. Setup was easy and the integration ability with Active Directory made the ACL use perfect. Using the LED and buttons on the front were not intuitive to me.

Amazing For It's Price, Only One Complaint

Part Time Techie, Amazon
19 January 2015
  • Summary: For it's price, this NAS has amazing features, including support for 6 TB drives with the latest firmware. I've had no real issues, save for a bit wonky of a UI making me reformat my entire RAID share when I was trying to extend it, that's why I've only given it 4 stars.

Good 5 bay NAS and OK customer support

J. Morrison, Amazon
24 December 2014
  • Summary: I had several issues initially with the unit. The support staff at Thecus was okay, which in an industry that has systemic horrible to non-existent customer support is actually way better than average.

  • Summary: I can't complain. It works well. I did expect the speed to be faster but that might be my settings. I also saw a friend's Synology and it seemed like the better deal. However, I liked this one enough to buy a second.

A 5-bay NAS that can also change your life?!

Michael G., Newegg
17 November 2014
  • Summary: I originally bought this to replace my Acer Easystore H340 server, which ran Windows Home Server. This was a great solution for me, because it was able to run applications in addition to being a central NAS for our home and media collection. But it was oh so slow..
  • Pros: * 5 bays at a 4 bay price * RAM is expandable, great if you run lots of modules * Can double as a full-blown XBMC media center * Great performance * Tool-less case design * Excellent build quality, but...**
  • Cons: * Cheap fan that dies, but is easily replaceable * Can't rename default music partition from "iTunes_music" * Yes, the webUI is kinda ugly, but it works well, so who cares ** Excellent build quality, but there are flimsy plastic parts, too
