Now that the easy tests are over, it is time to get into the complex file transfers where small files are able to slow the system's ability to transfer data at very high speeds. Here we see that the TS-859U-RP is able to run the Content Creation tests with ease, but Office Productivity gives the system problems. This is most likely due to the 1GB of memory. Luckily the TS-859U-RP is easily upgraded to 4GB of DDR2 and DDR2 SODIMMs are relatively cheap these days. If using this system in a large office environment where document files are used often from the NAS, making the investment in a 4GB DDR2 memory stick would be a wise purchase.
