Moving on to testing, we start with our single client RAID 0 results. Surprisingly, the Personal Cloud did quite well with peak results coming in video playback at 95 MB/s. We also reached 46 MB/s copying to NAS and 65 from the NAS.

RAID 1 didn't take too much of a performance hit. Video playback reached upwards of 91 MB/s, while file copy operations came in at 63 MB/s and 45 MB/s, respectively.
