Legit Reviews have taken a look at the Thecus N5550 5-Bay Home NAS:

"The Thecus N5550 5-bay NAS (shown above), looks very much like the N5500 that came out in 2009, but don't let the looks fool you. With front with the door closed, the N5550 and N5500 look almost identical, with the only exception being the logo on the front of the unit. Once you open the door and start looking around, you'll begin seeing that the new N5550 has hard a major hardware update. On thh front panel you'll see that there is now a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port and on the back of the NAS you'll find audio and HDMI ports. Thecus didn't stop there though as this unit is powered by an Intel Atom platform (Cedarview) with 2GB of DDR3 memory and an updated operating system. The best part is that the MSRP of the Thecus N5550 is $599.99 and the street price is just $439.00 shipped. The Thecus N5500 had an MSRP of $869 when it came out just three years ago! With all the hardware and software beefed up and the price slashed in half, this should be an interesting product to review!

The Thecus N550 is aimed at home and small business users that are looking for an affordable storage solution for their network. The Intel Atom D2700 processor and 2GB of memory make it one of the most powerful units on the market and one of the lowest priced. Having features like USB 3.0, HDMI video output and 2GB of memory really help the Thecus N5550 stand out from the crowd."
