09/18/2014- With its reputation preceding it, the Thecus N5550 arrived in BCC Hardware's office in the wake of the successful review of its smaller family member, the N2310. Looking forward to testing the Dual-Core Intel Atom Processor and 2GB of DDR3 memory-powered N5550, BCC Hardware were ready to pound in the impressive 5-bay for a few weeks.
Lots of connectivity options (USB2.0/USB3.0/eSATA/HDMI)
Supports JBOD, RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 and Single Disk Volumes
Display on unit lets you see network settings, alerts and more
So many options
Much cheaper than the competition
Media Server / Media Player
HDMI and audio connectivity
Cutting right to the chase, what was BCC Hardware's final verdict? “At the end of the day the Thecus N5550 is a very solid product… It is one of the most feature-packed NAS units we've seen and comes it at a lower price point than many 4-Bay NAS units without a display. The hardware under the hood is very comparable as well and you're not giving up any performance when you choose this unit as your main file storage server. I do like the fact that Thecus has a growing selection of mobile applications that add to the flexibility of the N5550. Many of these are available for both iOS and Android platforms and this attention to their user base is a very good thing… I don't think you can find a more powerful device with more bays for less money.”
Thanks to Benjamin "Zeus" Heide and everyone at BCC Hardware for the review.
