Moving over benchmarks to AJA System Test, the My Book Pro reached 376 MB/s read and 366 MB/s write with our 720p workload in RAID 0.

 

RAID 1 produced 160 MB/s read and 186 MB/s write by the same token.

Moving to the 1080p workload performance decreased with the RAID 0 array reaching just 316 MB/s read and 303 MB/s write.

 

Within RAID 1, read managed 148 MB/s and 169 MB/s write.

Finally, we swapped over to the 4K workload and generated 256 MB/s read and 191 MB/s write.

 

On this same test with RAID 1, the My Book Pro touched 162 MB/s read and 166 MB/s write.
