Q. I am looking for a NAS that will let me use SSDs and supports TRIM. That is very important to me because I want the SSDs to last a long time.

For a few months now I have been using my M6500 with a 120GB SSD for the boot drive and two 750GB 2.5″ hard drives in RAID1 for my data drive. Unfortunately, the hard drive caddy that replaces the optical drive has never quite fit right… only today did I get around to contacting the manufacturer: Hello, I am writing in reference to this caddy that I ordered: http://www.newmodeus.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=269&zenid=a40e0509f6a549136fc1331174bebbea That 2nd hard drive caddy for my M6500 has never quite

How long does it take to build a RAID5 array on a Thecus N4100Pro NAS using four 1TB drives? About 10 hours and 30 minutes. This was with (4) Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB hard drives, 32 MB Cache, 7200 RPM SATA II (WD1001FALS). I am a big fan of Thecus products! They have been very reliable for me and my family :-).
