Starting testing off with RAID 0, I was quite surprised to see the TeraStation produce results right up there with the Asustor 5012T. As a matter of fact, it was able to take top marks in 4x playback and playback/record.

Looking at RAID 1, the Buffalo again was equally impressive with both 2x and 4x playback.
