Benchmarks - 4 HDD / RAID 6

 

RAID 6: Extend RAID 5 by adding an additional parity block; thus it uses block-level striping with two parity blocks distributed across all member disks.

Single Client Performance Wrap-up

 

While the QNAP TS-669L didn't win many of the single client performance tests, it still delivered solid performance. The tests we're most concerned with are RAID 5 and RAID 6.

 

Most users will run a redundant mode in their home or office. RAID 5 is the sweet spot for performance, but RAID 6 gives additional data redundancy, at the cost of usable capacity.
