Starting off with RAID 0 results, the TS 253 Pro did quite well with file copy operations; the NAS fell off quite a bit with playback and recording.

Moving over to RAID 1, we found similar results, with the 253 Pro doing quite well in file copy with 114 MB/s. However, we found all three-playback tests came in around 50 MB/s.
