Thecus N7510 7-Bay Affordable Tower NAS Review

Thecus strikes gold with the new N7510, a high performance NAS that costs less than $100 per drive bay, and it has more features than you'll ever use. This is the model we've waited a long time for.

The two previous tests used sequential data, but now we need to look at random performance. Random reads and writes use smaller block sizes so you can tune your NAS when building the RAID array, by changing the strip size. For out tests we use the default setting which was right in the middle of the options available. The drawback from tuning for random performance is losing sequential performance.

In these tests, we see the two NAS products going back and forth with wins in the tests and RAID modes.

 

The performance is very close across the board in everything expect for content creation, the most stressful task handled by the NAS in NASPT. The RAID 6 content creation test is a challenge on the Thecus N7510, the QNAP unit doubles the performance. Of course to get there you need to spend a lot more money and run your system in RAID 6 to make it money well spent.
