Pros: This is an excellent NAS which performs storage functions beautifully!
If you want something cheap that can keep large amounts of data safe or to pump videos out to TVs (I use WD TV Live players), then this device is for you!
Cons: Thecus apps are pretty bad. For example, I have multiple brands of IP cameras. Neither myself nor my other tech buddy could get them working with the Thecus app. They did however pull right up on both the Synology DS411Slim and Synology DS2413.
If I were to compare Synology apps to Thecus, I would give Synology a 10 and Thecus a 1. So, if you are looking for a NAS to function more like a server and less like a storage device, then I recommend something else.
Cons: Only con I can give is if you have the old firmware, there were a few issues. Make sure you check for latest firmware. I had a few drives (WD) that showed as degraded or failed in the raid, not sure if it was the old firmware or not, as after reformat, the drives appeared fine. The latest Firmware that I am running (3.05.02.2) is a HUGE improvement. New GUI Win!
Other Thoughts: I have 2 of these, running RAID1+1spare, connected to 2 of my X-Serves of GIG Ethernet ports direct, so I can locate drive bays approx <300' away (DR plan smash and grab in a location we can easily get to if we cant get to server room). The NIC these are xnnected to are lower priority (in network window) and dont interfere with live network. Use script to mount the drives at login. X-Serve 10.6.8 X2 Thecus N7700 X2 3x1TB Drives X2 (1 for each Thecus) Bombich CCC/BRU (backup software options)
