Synology DS412+ NAS Review

Benchmarks - HD Playback


HD Video Play - 720p HD stream from Windows Media Player* 256kB reads

2HD Video Play - 2x playback

4HD Video Play - 4x playback




For a performance comparison, we're using the Thecus N4800, one of the best products available in the same price range as the Synology DS412+. We tested both products under several different array types since not everyone is looking to fill the same gap. Also, we recognize that some small offices will grow their array over time from a single drive to RAID 5 or RAID 6.


Both NAS use the same 2.13GHz Atom dual-core processors so we expect the performance to be fairly similar in the read performance tests. That is exactly what our results verified in these tests where HD Video is played back from the NAS to the client machine.
