The HD Playback performance of the Thecus N4200 is similar to some of the other 4 drive NAS appliances that we have tested in the past. Here we see that the N4200 is faster than the QNAP TS-419P in all but the single drive, JBOD category.

 

One area that stands out in the tests shown here is how well RAID 5 performs when compared to RAID 0. Many users will use this and I will go as far as suggest running the system in RAID 5 so you get the benefit of data redundancy. Here we see that the typical performance hit of running RAID 5 is not apparent with the N4200.
