Mixed mode playback also shows the N7700 moving data at an incredible rate. The chart does spot one weak point with the system, however. Here we see that Playback with Backup operations do not scale with the number of drives added. The transfer hovers just a little over 40 MB/s; we have noticed this occurrence with all of the NAS servers tested using this method. It should be said that the Thecus N7700 does have the highest transfer rate in this test thus far, though.
