The star (*) shows the original configurations for the BlackArmor 420.

 

We ran into an issue with the BlackArmor with the Office Productivity test. This is something we have encountered in the past with other NAS servers and it is a known issue with Intel's NASPT software.

 

In the other tests we see the BlackArmor 420 behind the Thecus N4200 again. This time the Thecus unit was about 2x as fast.
