02/19/2010 – The five-bay N5500 NAS from storage leader Thecus® Technology is the NAS to beat for small businesses that need strong performance and security for their data. In their latest review, Bjorn3D got their hands on the N5500, and when all was said and done, walked away thoroughly impressed with the device. In fact, Bjorn3D editors gave the N5500 an 8 out of 10 rating and their Seal of Approval, saying “The Thecus N5500 NAS is a great contender for your next business NAS purchase.”
The N5500 combines smart design with some powerful hardware: "I think Thecus did a good job styling it. The cutout for the lights will help you diagnose any issues with the unit with a simple glance. There are also buttons on the front so you can look up different information on the units LCD screen...The heat sink with the fan on it is the systems CPU (Intel Celeron M 1.86 GHz), under that is the NB heat sink. If you look to the left you can see the 1 GB of RAM. These are the same type of DIMM's that laptops take…It is worth noting that they included a DDR2 800 MHz DIMM, showing that they did not cheap out when it comes to RAM."
As a Thecus® NAS, the N5500 offers superior performance: "Right off the bat the NAS posts up some pretty good scores. When we move to RAID 5, the scores look even better! Again the NAS posts up some great results. With these speeds, you can be sure that your data will get to any computer on your network extremely fast, even if there are multiple people accessing it…The speeds that the unit was able to achieve are great for being over a network, and the benefits are just what some are looking for. You can easily hook this unit up to your office network, and let all of your employees save important documents to the unit. The ability to run RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 is a great advantage, as it gives you the choice of speed or data safety. So if your production is directly related to how fast you can transfer files, then RAID 0 or 5 is a good choice. If you want to make sure that you do not lose any of your data, then a RAID 1 system is just what you're looking for. In this way, the N5500 is an almost unbeatable NAS."
So what's the final word? "The Thecus N5500 NAS is a great contender for your next business NAS purchase. Whether you're a company with 20 employees, or a company with a hundred, you can be sure that this NAS will be a fast reliable unit...This unit fits in excellent in its class, delivering excellent performance."
