09/05/2011 –SmallNetBuilder is well-known for its regular charts, reviews and extensive knowledge about NAS products. Submitting all Thecus NAS to a tough and extensive procedure, they came out with a set of performances charts and a comparison evaluating the price/performance ratio. Let's not wait for any longer and discover the charts which are more meaningful than words.
Below is the Thecus N5200XXX in the RAID 5 File Copy Write Performance test. As you can see, the N5200XXX takes a commanding lead with a score of 94.8MB/s.
The most interesting chart is about the price/performance ratio, where it's getting obvious that Thecus products are with dominating performance but still affordable: “Current lowest [N5200XXX] pricing is $705, while you'll pay almost $1100 for a D525-based QNAP TS-559 Pro+ (not reviewed), while a D510-powered Synology DS1010+ is closer in at about $800.”
Finally, in the RAID10 File Copy From NAS test, the N5200XXX is once again on top with a 82.5MB/s score. The Thecus N4200PRO is also in the second position with the score of 79.7MB/s.
To wrap it up, the conclusion of SmallNetBuilder: “Still, if you want performance equal to or better than more expensive systems and leave your wallet a bit fuller, Thecus may be the way to go.”
