Combining outstanding performance with rock-solid stability and complete flexibility, the 8-bay Thecus N8800PRO storage server sets a new standard in enterprise storage. The storage server is equipped with powerful Intel Core 2 Duo process plus a full 4GB of DDR2 800 memory to provide lightning-quick system response and increased concurrent connections, achieving data transfer speeds of over 300MB/s.
The Thecus N8800PRO comes with an internal PCI-e slot to ensure compatibility with future technologies. With the support of the multi RAID modes including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and JBOD as well as online RAID expansion and migration, the storage server provides unprecedented data security and reliability. The Thecus N8800PRO is also equipped with Dual DOM design that features a secondary DOM, which automatically reprograms the primary DOM should any malfunction occur, ensuring flawless operation and maximum uptime. For added storage capacity, you can actually attach up to five different Thecus N8800PRO servers to it and manage them all using one master device.
The Thecus N8800PRO is a new level of power and flexibility in enterprise storage. Get it and you'll keep your corporate data assets secured and available at all times.
Pros: 10 Gb Networking, great capacity, great price. I/O scheduling crushes default linux server scheduling under load.
Cons: Internal build quality could be better -- some loose cabling, which makes hot-swaps of internal components (e.g. system fans) more delicate than it needs to be.
Other Thoughts: These things replaced dedicated linux servers (also with 10Gb networking). Solved our data throughput issues immediately. We have 3x (w/ 8x2TB seagate constellations) installed in our small biz cluser with a 10Gb backbone, works great.

NA should be 1 star for tech knowledge
Pros: For starters, do your research. One of the best low end/smb caliber devices on the market, yes there are limitations but go buy EMC or NetApp if you need enterprise features like volume expansion (it does have RAID migration so you can create a new RAID and migrate your data to the new one).
Cons: Not an "enterprise" product, but great for the costs.
Other Thoughts: N/A - really one of your cons is "RAID10 requires four disks" do you even know what RAID10 is? Let me tell you its RAID0, which requires at least 2 disks to do the stripe, plus RAID1 which is a mirror of your RAID0 set, so at a bare minimum you need 4 disks to do RAID10. Oh and by the way, multiple computers can use the same iSCSI target address, you don't need one per computer. Learn something about SANs before posting negative comments.

I should have added to my previous review
Pros: Liked the locking hard drive trays.
Cons: In addition, this thing has some really weird setups for the disks that it uses for a RAID array. You have three choices, ZFS, EXT3 or some other I cannot remember, and you can only pick one for each volume. If you use ZFS, the volume "cannot be expanded", meaning they have a subpar implementation of ZFS. And there's no way I'm going to make a 14TB RAID5 EXT3 volume in a virtualized environment.

Really disappointed on a number of levels
Pros: Dual power supplies and NICs, comes with mounting rails. UI written in flash, it's relatively painless.
Cons: I was overwhelmingly disappointed in this product for server room use. Particularly fatal is the fact that it can only create five iSCSI targets for each RAID volume. RAID10 requires four disks, and if you add a disk to a RAID volume, it adds the entire disk.
Other Thoughts: Newegg, as usual, was the star player here and accepted the return. I lost $100 on overnight shipping, but I guess ya gotta pay to play. The thing got great reviews in a Tom's Hardware Guide NAS storage shootout. Those guys are usually pretty good, but I'd be careful about this unit.
