The star (*) shows the original configurations for the BlackArmor 420.
When it comes to recording HD content, once again the Seagate BlackArmor trails behind the Thecus N4200. Just as before, the Seagate also scores nearly the same in all of the configurations. This shows us that something in the hardware is limiting the NAS. In most cases like this we found that either the processor wasn't able to process data fast enough, or the memory was not large enough to keep data flowing smoothly to the processor and drives.
