Easily the most difficult function for a NAS to perform is writing several small files in succession. This is why we test 4K block sizes on hard drives and solid state drives. When you are reading, writing or viewing hundreds of pictures in an Explorer window from a NAS, you are asking the NAS to process the small thumbnails. In the Photo Album test we observed the Thecus N5200XXX peaking at round 12MB/s. The INEO NAS had a much harder time keeping up with the pace.
