Personally I've not had many problems with the device (or rather, all the screwups were mine) but we're a Windows shop and this thing runs Linux. Active Directory and Linux don't play well, although better than expected.
Our 1U4500 was meant to replace our flaky old Pentium 3 fileserver. In future, I'll ignore the dedicated NAS devices and just use 2U fileservers running the appropriate OS instead.
The Thecus 1U4500 is the all new 1U NAS appliance from Thecus designed to be a simple-to-install-and-manage storage server. The Thecus 1U4500 boasts dual gigabit Ethernet connectivity, great redundancy and a massive capacity of up to 4 TB.
