Starting out with our testing, we have for comparison the TVS 463 Pro from QNAP, Synology ds415play and N4310 from Thecus.


In our first single client test, the N5810 Pro configured in a four disk RAID 0 array did quite well. We started with impressive numbers of 95.8 MB/s, 112.4 MB/s and 110 MB/s for video playback then moved into similar results for video record. File copy operations came in at 93.6 MB/s to the NAS and 67 MB/s from the NAS.





RAID 5 produced quality numbers setting the NAS up in second spot in this chart. Highest performance was recorded within copying from the NAS at 109 MB/s, while the lowest was 77 MB/s during video playback.




Next up we have the N5810 Pro in RAID 10, performance starts out at 72 MB/s copying from the NAS, while moving down we find really great performance in 2x video playback touching 113 MB/s.
