Top NAS available on the market. With the new firmware update you can't beat 21 TB compare to other NASes at the same level. Quite impressive!!!

At first everything went well. I decided to build a RAID 10 array because I was using six 2TB disks (Hitachi) and XFS. Building the array was the first problem - it didn't just take hours it took just a couple of hours short of 2 days! When it was finally built I transferred over 250GB of data or so and was just starting a second transfer when I got a message from Windows saying "too many files open" or similar.

Perplexed, I started looking for problems through the web interface when the red light started flashing on a drive. I looked at the manual and it seemed to say that I should just remove the drive with the flashing light and replace with a new one. I did that - fortunately I had a spare. The beeper sounded (it may have started when the red light came on I can't remember) and the display on the front said the array was degraded.

Then the problems really started - I navigated to one of the files in the 250GB I'd copied over and Windows put up it's progress bar and eventually timed out - not a good sign I thought. Then I tried to get to the web admin - the browser timed out. I pinged the box - it was still there. I waited a few hours trying every now and then - still the same. I waited overnight - still the same.

Next evening I gave up and turned the box off and on again. The box came back up with all green lights - very happy to let me go in through the admin web interface and look at my disks - all there and my RAID - what ! no RAID ! the RAID array had vaporized ! So what do I do now? I haven't lost any data but I've lost complete faith in the box!

I got my Thecus N7700PRO from newegg last month, all metal construction, intuitive UI, and fast data transfer speed.
Thanks for the introduction of 10GbE, that's something I'm interested in and one of the reasons I bought this unit. I would also like to get the 10GbE cards and try it out.

I own one of this device myself and I use it mainly as a file server and I use the Farstone backup software that comes free with the device to backup files from my PC to the N7700PRO.

It is indeed a great device, it works perfectly without any problems since the day I got it.
I am content with performance and I really dont think this device is noisy at all.
