Most users running the GIGABYTE GR-EZI04H will choose to use RAID 5 as it gives you the best balance of data security, user capacity and performance. The GIGABYTE GR-EZI04H seems tuned for RAID 5 and RAID 6, the RAID 0 and RAID 10 performance isn't really that great, but with only four drives, most will not run RAID 10 and running RAID 0 isn't redundant.

 

Looking at the RAID 5 numbers towards the bottom of the chart we see the GIGABYTE NAS delivers solid performance that is comparable to that found on the Thecus N4800 also when in RAID 5.
