The Photo Album and Content Creation tests are very difficult for NAS servers since they involve many small files. If you have ever wondered why we pay so much attention to the 4K write speeds in our HDD tests, the creation of content, like image files use many of these small writes.

Here we see with the Photo Album Test, even though the numbers look small in this test, they are much faster than most NAS servers on the market.

The Content Creation tests were steady across the configurations tested, but the numbers were a little lower than what we would like to have seen.

The real stand out area for the Thecus N8800 Pro was the Office Productivity tests. Here we see the absolute highest numbers we have ever recorded on any NAS. That makes the Thecus N8800 Pro the best NAS we have ever seen for office use, where the users are working with typical office documents like Word, Excel and so forth.
