We started testing with Intel NASPT as our single client testing process. As you can see, the AS6404T in light blue performs quite well through video playback scenarios.

 

As for recording the 6404T performed lower than other solutions in our chart with File Copy operations reaching 98 MB/s to the NAS and 86 MB/s from the NAS.

RAID 5 saw more of the same with the AS6404T at the top of playback testing, while file copy came in at 100 MB/s to the NAS and 91 from.

Over to RAID 6, we see 110 MB/s for HD Playback while 2x and 4x reach 117 MB/s and 118 MB/s. Record comes in at 87 MB/s, just ahead of the DS916+.
