Single Client Performance Wrap-up


Even though the Thecus N4510U only holds four drives and has a slower processor than some of the other NAS systems on the single user charts, the N4510U managed to perform better than some of the others in specific tests. Even when the N4510U didn't outright win a test on a chart, it still performed very well in that test, and to be honest, the NAS performed very well across the board.
