Starting out with our testing, we have for comparison a full complement of NAS solutions. These include the Pro model of the N5810 along with competing solutions from QNAP, ASUSTOR, and Synology. For these and most charts, the N5810 uses a teal green color. Starting with RAID 0 with four drives, the Thecus unit did quite well in Playback and Record at 122.3 MB/s and File Copy at 122 MB/s.




RAID 5 showed the 5810 producing some solid performance with several tests showing over 120 MB/s.




Next, we have the N5810 in RAID 10, where I found it to product near 110 MB/s. Playback was among the lowest results we have received at 68 MB/s and that also matched the File Copy from results as well.
