IT Guy, Amazon
28 January 2015
  • 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. Using the web interface made setup easy and fast. I did have one silly problem with the N5550 losing connection to AD randomly and realized I made a stupid mistake in setup.

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. Trouble shooting required a RMA return to the company's California facility and they turned it around very quickly, no complaints but all issues were not resolved. It turned out that the main problem was a defective memory module which Thecus supplied and I installed.

Great Home NAS

Nancy R., Newegg
6 September 2014
  • Summary: I've owed this NAS for a little over a year and couldn't be happier. I particularly like ability to only load the modules you want/need. I get almost full Gig-E transfers (120Mbps) with only a single cable connected. I'm running a blend of 2Tb WD Red's and Toshiba HDDs. I use it as a both a NAS and media server, and easily playback videos directly to my HDTV.
  • Pros: Fast, reliable, many useful features and only load the ones you want, quiet.
  • Cons: Bonded network link is slower than single link. (75Mbps vs 120Mbps)

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

Jimmy, Amazon
2 May 2014
  • 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. But because the support was so great with them I RMA'ed it and got another one....... I would recommend one :-) Pretty awesome gear for the price.

Now I know they're Japanese, but I respect them and don't want to think they're to cheap to hire an American proofreader

  • Summary: Pretty great little monster vault with a lot of applications.I'll try the print server app next, since it sits near my 4ft tal Ricoh Aficio 250 Laser Multifunction duplexing moneypit. Should look right cute like david and goliath.
