This review is from: Thecus N5550 Diskless System NAS Server | Enterprise - Tower
Pros: Worked out of the box. I found it easy to use and fast. I have 5 seagate 4TB drives running in raid6. I get 100+MB/s on large file trasfers with the processor only hitting 50% or so.
Cons: Not a big deal, but could have included a second ethernet cable...
Other Thoughts: Mine is in the basement, so noise is a non-issue for me.
Also, if you do use drive >2TB would recommend raid 6 or raid 10 as the larger drives appear to fail more frequently than the smaller sizes for some reason.
I was interested to see the logs showed someone at the factory plugging in drives to test each bay
I had to update the firmware before I could use the drives
Pros: All 5 drives I purchased worked out of the box. Running in Thecus n5550 nas and get over 100MB/s speeds on large files in raid6. Very happy with the drives assuming they don't die in the short term
Other Thoughts: Read reviews that there were a higher than normal % of DoA drives. This seems common on drives over 2TB. I chose to use RAID6 for this reasonREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have been drawn to seagate barracudas for their dependability and this drive has lived up after 9mos. It is also speedy and quiet. I am using them in a qnap 209pro NAS device and they have been flawless.
