In our single client testing, the RN104 did quite well utilizing RAID 0. Above, you can see the unit peaked at 99.4 MB/s in 2x Video Playback.




Setting up a RAID 5 array, the RN104 showed no loss in performance coming from RAID 0. Here, we have the unit peaking once again during 2x Video Playback at 95.6 MB/s.




RAID 10 gained a little more performance. Video Playback x2 again recorded peak results at 96.4 MB/s, though the unit did quite well throughout all testing.
