Thecus N5550 5-Bay Home NAS Review - Benchmarks - HD Record

Thecus rehashed a successful design for the successor to the N5500 and increased performance with a new Intel Atom processor paired with twice the amount of RAM. The new N5550 also adds advanced features, HDMI output and USB 3.0 topping that list.

The Thecus N5550 ships with 2GB of DDR3 RAM and the QNAP only ships with 1GB. Again we see the Thecus perform really well. The NAS slows a bit in some of the tests at RAID 5, mainly when recording and playing back data at the same time.

 

I wouldn't say it's a double the price / performance reduction.
