The have zero problem so far with the N5550. It's been running 24/7 since it was purchased during the boxing week with 4 Seagate Constellation in a RAID 5 array. Read / write throughput have been excellent between 80-110 MB/s. This is super fast compared to my 4 year old but reliable ReadyNAS NV+ ~ 20-25 MB/s. The ReadyNAS is now a backup for the N5550. Overall I am very happy with my purchase from a price / performance perspective. Make sure you upgrade the firmware to the later .08 version right away as mine came with the old .03 release, which might have stability issues when transferring a large amount data.
This is a great NAS. It is very quick and I have not encountered any slowdowns or performance degredation. Consistantly able to max out 1GB LAN connection. Feature set for modules could be improved through better interfaces.
I bought 2 of these NAS devices and so far been very happy with them. I am running 5 3TB western digital RED drives in one and 4 3 TB western digital Red in the other. I have everything running RAID 5 an So far...No issues at all.
Have had no problems with this NAS box. Was simple to set up with 4 3TB WD Red hard drives in RAID 10. Excellent transfer speed via the eSATA or USB 3. Had it up and running on my home network in a about 15min. For the price I think it is excellent.
