In our 720p testing, the unit with the 1TB SSDs performed quite well. As you can see, many of our results are towards the top of our chart. The RAID 0 array peaked out at 900 MB/s read and write, while the RAID 1 setup produced 850 MB/s read and 375 MB/s write.

Moving to 1080p, performance picked up for the RAID 0 setup. Here we have read results near 1100 MB/s, while writes hovered around 1000 MB/s. RAID 1 stayed did pick up a little as well coming in near 925 MB/s read and 400 MB/s write.

4K further increased performance, where we saw our RAID 0 array nearly touch 1200 MB/s read and our RAID 1 array at 1150 MB/s read and 400 MB/s write.
