Comments about Thecus N2200PLUS Home NAS Server:

I purchased this unit on November 3rd. Configuration was simple yet I found out the hard way that both drives needed to be installed prior to configuring RAID1. You can not add a second drive after the fact (Problem 1). After I configured the unit, I put some files on it and discovered that there was a firmware upgrade that allows for the second core of the processor to be used. I upgraded the firmware and lost my data (Problem 2). I then put some more files on it and tried loading some modules. By mistake I loaded a module that was not for this unit (Thecus Dashboard), guess what - I lost my files again (Problem 3). For some stupid reason, I decided to keep the unit and just not mess with it. I put all of my files on it (but since I did not trust it, I kept them on another drive). 1.5 months later, the unit was not accessable. The unit reported that I had no RAID configured. I lost my files again (Problem 4). I guess I forgot to tell you that I had opened a ticket with them after the first loss but they could not help me since I already re-created the RAID (understandable). After the last loss of files, I re-opened the ticket and they have been working on it for 3 days and told me they will try to repair the filesystem but I may lose all of my files (Problem 5). There is no way to access the Linux OS on it (except for a 3rd party module that can not be loaded if you don't have a RAID configured) (Problem 6). In the end my files were not recoverable. As an IT professional, I am very disappointed in this unit and would not recommend it to anyone looking for a NAS. Now I will continue my search for a good NAS that isn't priced outrageously,
