RAID 0 throughput was pretty impressive with the TVS-463, minus the hiccup we found with 4x playback. Results ranged from a low of 11.3 MB/s with 4x playback to a high of 122 MB/s with file copy and record operations.

RAID 5 offered similar performance where we found results upwards of 124 MB/s in file copy to NAS, while the lowest performance seen was moving files from the NAS at 67 MB/s.

RAID 10 throughput had a few more ups and downs. Peak performance was found in video record at 105 MB/s, while a low of 64 MB/s was recorded in file copy from NAS.
