Great Little Box
Pros: Works flawlessly so far, only having it for under month I've had zero issues. I filled it with Seagate Barracuda LP drives, the (5,900 rpm ones). That I had in a previous system, and easily reach 100MB/s speeds over a 1gbe network. I also had zero issues upgrading the ram to 16 Gigs using the 4GB Kingston Modules off of their compatibility list.
Cons: Not all advertised features are "fully" supported, case in point XBMC. The XBMC module was written by a Thecus employee but is listed as a 3rd party module. Don't get me wrong, it does work, however I've been using a remote XBMC app on my iPad for a couple years now and it's not "fully" compatible with XBMC running on this NAS. You lose control of XBMC once you launch a video due to it actually passing the video playback to an external player (mplayer). The proposed solutions are to use a wireless keyboard... Well that's just so 10 yrs ago... so -1 Egg for that.
Other Thoughts: Some people say it's a NAS use it as one and stop trying to use it like a PC and would argue the XBMC point. This thing really is a PC/NAS Hybrid Intel CPU, DDR3 RAM, and 6 SATA Drives and HDMI Output. The more functionality I can squeeze out of it the better. Maybe they will fix this one.
