“Under the covers there is a speed demon waiting to be unleashed”
Bookmark and Share

12/08/2009Easy-to-use and filled with friendly features, the N5500 from Thecus® may seem like an ordinary NAS, but underneath that polish is a machine that is primed for peak performance. Recently, the editors of WhichNAS got a chance to test drive the N5500 to see if this five-bay NAS really lived up to the hype. At the end, WhichNAS was thoroughly impressed with the unit for its strong feature set, total ease-of-use, and mind-blowing performance. In fact, they saw it fitting to give the N5500 their coveted Performance Award!

The N5500's complete ease-of-use blew WhichNAS editors away: "Installation is painless and swift… After numerous user requests, Thecus have finally relented to a new AJAX look interface which is smooth and very pleasing to use…the new interface is excellent and is now a total improvement when compared with the Netgear ReadyNAS product range, whose interface has not changed since 2007.”

Thecus®' complete storage focus gives Thecus® NAS appliances the edge: "The N5500 has a few unique features and will over a period time become a leader in its class. Thecus as an organization continues to impress. From 2005, they have been committed to provide a solution for all categories, from home to enterprise, and they have delivered. They have solutions based on a 1-bay, 2-bay 3-bay, 4-bay, 5-bay, 7-bay and the current 8-bay products. We think it's very impressive, they do not believe in one fit for all, as do other NAS vendors. Thecus are not a manufacturer of all electronic consumer products, they specialize in storage, and this gives them the edge over any other pretentious NAS vendor.”

The conclusion? "The Thecus N5500 is deceitful. From the outside it seems just like another NAS device, square shape with 5 hot swap bays, and with the normal connectivity options. It is anything but ordinary. Under the covers there is a speed demon waiting to be unleashed, turn it on and watch it blaze away. The N5500 has astounding speed. It's a mean machine that will not only work as a NAS but also doubles up as a DAS. It's feature packed and with a new front end GUI really rounds up the N5500 as a complete NAS to have. If you are a new NAS buyer or merely adding to your portfolio of units, the N5500 will not disappoint."
