For a product comparison we choose to use the QNAP TS-459 Turbo NAS. The TS-459 costs around 100 USD more than the Thecus N4200 PRO, but offers the same number of drive bays and the same D525 Atom processor.
When it comes to playing back HD streams both NAS servers perform equally in many of the early tests. Once we get to the RAID 6 tests the Thecus does a better job of playing back streams faster when pushing 2x and 4x.
