As expected with this dual bay, the Marvell 1.6GHz processor limits the performance of the WD Red HDDs. The performance results in RAID 1 and RAID 0 are nearly identical, so you don't get a large performance increase with the stripe in all tests. In some tests, like HD Video Record, there was a significant performance increase, but for the most part, the results were very close.
