Thecus has a good etail and retail presence in the US market. I was easily able to find the N7700 Pro at several major online venders and one local to me retail shop. Currently Newegg lists the N7700 for 1099.99 with free shipping.
After looking around at competing products at Newegg, one thing stood out very clearly. The competitors products in this same price range were only 4, 5 and 6 drive NAS servers. It seems that the 7 drive system from Thecus is really in a class by itself and when compared to other offerings it is simply outperforming the competition by offering more storage capacity.
