Above we have the results of our single client workload (NASPT). In both RAID 0 and RAID 1, the Thecus N2560 did quite well with 84 MB/s in our RAID 0 HD Video Playback test.

 

HD Video Record was equally impressive at 89.8 MB/s in RAID 0. RAID 1 performance was pretty linear across the board in all tests as seen above, though file copy operations were a strong point.
