Throwing the DS1817 on our charts in dark blue, I found this unit to perform a bit higher than the 1517+ and RN626X reaching 390 MB/s in playback and 575 MB/s in 4x playback. The record hit 357 MB/s with File Copy topping out at 367 MB/s to the NAS and 300 from the NAS.


RAID 5 still had a solid performance with multi playback workloads; this includes 572 MB/s for 2x and 377 MB/s for 4x. File copy reached 222 MB/s and 341 MB/s, respectively.


In our last run with RAID 6, performance hovered between 320 and 370 MB/s for file copy and 380 MB/s for record. Playback still showed the best at 450 MB/s through 612 MB/s.
