Rating: 1/5Do not buy until Thecus fixes their firmware bugs!
This review is from: Thecus N8810U-G Diskless System Rackmount Network Storage
Pros: Great capacity, comes with sliding rack rails.
Cons: I have a brand-new Thecus N8810U-G NAS updated with the latest firmware (2.05.07 as of 3/5/2015), and it has a major issue. In the GUI under System Network -> Networking -> Domain name, it defaults to "thecus.com", and you are unable to change that to your actual domain or workgroup name (i.e., "companyname"). The device won't allow you to change that field, it gives an error message. It worked fine on my previous N8800. As a result you cannot join this to a standard workgroup or domain and access it's shares via it's hostname (i.e., "\\N8810U-G"). It's a big issue and Thecus hasn't fixed it yet, there are many other reports in their forums. Have had a ticket open for a week with no resolution, even tried installing SSH and changing it from the back-end, but I'm not enough of a Linux expert to figure it out. Device is a paperweight until this can be resolved! :(
Other Thoughts: Do not buy until Thecus fixes their firmware bugs.
