04/19/2013 – All opinion leaders agree, the N5550 is the best 5-bay NAS out on the market. To reinforce this reputation, the 5-bay NAS from the Vision Series found itself in the test lab of Gladget Magazine in South Africa. The result is as expected really nice; the N5550 walks out with a score of 90 and the Silver Award!
+ Lots of drive bays
+ Very fast
+ HDMI output
Built to perform
The architecture of the N5550 is nothing less than exemplary; metal chassis, Intel® Atom™ processor, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, 4-USB 2.0 ports and one USB 3.0, eSATA port, HDMI output and 2 LAN ports. Additionally, you'll find a LCD frontal display and control button for quick NAS status update, the protection of the McAfee antivirus and the 5 lockable metallic trays to host the SSDs or HDDs. “All in all, this adds up to speed and security at a level that would soothe even the most paranoid NAS owner.”
Let's conclude by a note from the editor at Gladget Magazine. “What really impressed us, though, was the reliability of the unit, both in speed and storage performance, as well as it's really rugged construction. The front door could feel a little tougher but that's the only element of the N5550 that wouldn't survive a bomb blast. This is a good option for anyone wanting a reliable and potentially large NAS.”
The complete review of the N5550 can be found in the Gladget Magazine, January 2013 edition.
