There is quite a lot of information to be found just in the HD Playback tests. Here we see that the Thecus N8800 Pro is about half the speed of the QNAP unit with a single drive, but when you fill both NAS' up with 8 drives things change and the N8800 Pro is able to outperform the TS-859U-RP.

 

When playing back video, the N8800 Pro is capable of sending several steams at the same time and using up to 88.1MB/s.
