Thecus 7700

PROS:
  • very fast
  • cheap for the specs
  • very stable
CONS:
  • VERY noisy
  • complicated GUI
  • buggy FTP and BT downloaders which suck up 100% cpu on one thread
  • lame power management
  • doesn't advertise over the network
CONCLUSION:
Avoid it, buy the Readynas pro instead.

  3. price difference doesn't offset the poor thecus firmware and the noise
