Performance (NAS Performance Tester)
We tested the NAS in a configuration with one installed hard disk in order to be able to make a fair comparison. We connected the NAS devices via Gigabit LAN to one of our test PCs. With NAS Performance Tester 1.2 software we first determined the maximum transfer rate by reading and writing a 1,000MB file to and from the NAS.
The reading speed of the DS212 and the RS212 is very good. The DS212j is a little slower, but the performance is still good for an entry-level device. If you look at writing speeds you'll see that these NAS devices aren't the fastest around, but they are far from being the worst.
