Testing began with our single client testing with NASPT. RAID 0 as seen in the bottom of each row had some good results for the N4810. Playback seemed to be where this solution excelled with 110 MB/s for 2, 3 and 4x.

RAID 5 saw a minor performance drop from an average of 110 MB/s in RAID 0 to 106 MB/s for RAID 5 playback. With that said, playback and record took a more severe hit moving from 101 and 103 MB/s to 65 and 71 MB/s.

Over to RAID 6, we found similar numbers for playback ranging from 78 MB/s to 101 MB/s while playback and record were slightly higher this time around near 90 MB/s.
