For a head to head comparison we pulled out a QNAP TS-859U-RP. This QNAP 2U rack mount unit uses an earlier Intel Atom processor, but shares the same 1GB memory size and gigabit Ethernet configuration.

 

The Thecus N8200XXX starts off a little slow with just a single drive, but after you start filling up the spaces there is just no looking back. We feel that most businesses will utilize RAID 6 and you can find the results for that level at the bottom of each chart. The N8200XXX nearly doubles the TS-859U-RP in both the single and dual video playback tests.

 

The same outstanding performance carries over to the RAID 5 and RAID 0 tests as well.
