Even though the Thecus N4800 has twice the amount of system RAM, 2GB as opposed to the Synology 1GB, the Synology managed to outperform the Thecus in several of our HD video record tests. This became very noticeable when the array complexity increased.

 

Looking at the bottom of the chart at the four drive RAID 6 array, the DS412+ nearly doubled the N4800 performance when two streams were recording and two streams were playing back at the same time.
