04/17/2013 –The N5550 5-bay NAS from the Vision Series is at it again. The German media Hardwareluxx who recently tested the N4800 decided to test its bigger brother the N5550. Featuring the great characteristics offered with all NAS from the Vision Series (Intel® Atom™ processor, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, USB 3.0 port, HDMI and VGA output, eSATA port and two LAN ports), the N5550 is without a doubt a leader in the 5-bay NAS world. That is why Hardwareluxx gave it the “Price-Performance” award.
Positive aspects pointed by Hardwareluxx:
- Very good speed
- Space for five hard drives
- Low price
- Solidly crafted case
- Interesting HTPC approach
“The performance on the internal RAID-5 is enormous. Writing large and small files all happens very quickly…In total Thecus provides the basis for a solid NAS. It has space for five hard drives and can thus provide plenty of capacity. The speed of data access can also be seen.
In the end, we can recommend the N5550 to each user who wants a maximum of space for a less money… a very fast NAS with lots of space sold for the price of just 400 euros. For this reason, the Thecus N5550 receives our price/performance award.”
