Here we pushed on to Random read where we found the Red Pro top the charts again. At QD32, we found the drive bringing 458 IOPS to the table.

Random write had the Red Pro giving nearly 430 IOPS across the board.

With the Red Pro being the quickest on randoms, it was no surprise to see it have the lowest latency either. As you can see, it was quite a bit quicker than the Red 4TB with the nearest drive being the HGST NAS.

Random write latency was more of the same story as expected. The nearest solution, the HGST NAS, was 13ms slower than the Red Pro at QD32.
