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)
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.
Summary: This product has high quality and reasonable price. Read-Write performance and material quality are acceptable. + Price + hardware specs (2GB Ram ATOM CPU) + Additional software features + McAfee AntiVirus + Licensed Twonky Media Server - Only one USB 3.0 port - Front cover close usb 3.0 port.
Summary: I have a business and we are data intense. I have 8 of these towers. Great company with great product. Things do wear out and the repair side of the company is as good as the sales side... that is rare.
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. To decide how many users can be handled, look at the hardware spec, and don't expect more than the hardware can do. For me, the nas is working beautifly.
