11/18/2014-Having previously reviewed Thecus NAS as far back as 2008, Big Bruin is no stranger to Thecus quality and performance. Moving from the 2-bay N2310 review earlier this year to the SMB powerhouse, the N5550, the writers at Big Bruin found themselves equally impressed by the 5-bay's great value.
“The main thing that impressed me about the Thecus N5550 5-Bay NAS server was the transfer rates it was able to put up. Reads and writes consistently topped 100MB/s, and many times it was closing in on 120MB/s. You definitely have the speed to handle anything a home or small/mid-sized business user could need, and with room for 5 drives in a RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 or JBOD configuration, you can be sure to get just the right balance of capacity, redundancy, and speed.”
“Installation is not tool-less, but it is straight forward and rather simple. Once drives are installed, the configuration through the web based user interface is also rather easy. You can be up and running, with your NAS sharing storage space on your network in a rather short amount of time.”
“For a five bay enclosure that is clearly capable of solid performance, the Thecus N5550 is definitely attractively priced.”
“In the end, the Thecus N5550 5-Bay NAS server earns the Bigbruin.com ‘Recommended' award for its performance, and the ‘Good Value' award for the bang for the buck it offers!”
Thanks to Jason Kohrs and everyone at Big Bruin for the review.
