Before we dive into benchmarks, it should be noted that comparison systems used SSDs in testing. With the Buffalo being a turn-key device, it was tested as supplied with four 2TB IronWolf hard drives.


Moving into testing, I start with RAID 0 and our single client testing with NASPT. The Buffalo is the dark green NAS in the charts and considering its drive configuration I was surprised by how well it did in testing. Playback reached a peak of 494 MB/s while file copy topped 419 MB/s.


RAID 5 showed a peak of 549 MB/s in 4x playback with a small hit in file copy operations reaching 373 MB/s.


RAID 6 was similar with playback testing. We reached a peak of 540 MB/s again file copy further took a hit down to 327 MB/s.
