Content creation and small photo work are the most difficult areas for NAS servers to handle since the data sets are small and there are so many of them. The GIGABYTE NAS actually outperforms the Thecus in the Photo Album test in RAID 5 this round. The content creation test is very close, but the N4800 shows its might in the office productivity test.
