When rolling through the tests we found the 1GB of RAM to sufficient for a single user environment, but later we'll show that the TS-869 Pro as configured from the factory could use a boost in the RAM department.


The single drive JBOD results were also low across the board. This was something that caught us by surprise since QNAP products tend to do very well with just a single drive. I would also like to note that this was our second test with the TS-869 Pro.


The first time we ran through the unit the performance was down considerably, but after applying the latest firmware updates, the unit sparked to life and became the 100+ MB/s beast you see in the charts today.
