Starting out with our testing, we have similar SoC based appliances from QNAP, Synology and Thecus. The ASUSTOR unit, as seen above, did quite well with RAID 0 topping 100 MB/s in four of the seven workloads.

RAID 5 showed equally impressive performance with playback and record touching 124 MB/s, while copy to NAS also was able to touch 120 MB/s.

With RAID 10, we find the QNAP and Synology units giving the ASUSTOR fits, but overall another round of impressive performance from the AS5004T.
