Time to desktop for the NAS HDD came in at 63.76 seconds, just behind the Desktop HDD and three seconds quicker than the single platter WD Red in our charts.



Resume from S4 Hibernation


Hibernation or S4 is part of the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface specification. In our custom "Resume from S4" testing, we allow the drive to enter hibernation for a period of ten minutes, from there we use our trusted stopwatch and time how long it takes for the drive to resume to a working desktop environment.




In our custom resume from S4 testing, the NAS HDD did quite well. Coming in at 7.75 seconds, it's well ahead of the WD Red that managed 16.6 seconds.
