Peerless Performer

As it’s a NAS drive, we first used it as part of our Lab’s NAS infrastructure. We tested its transfer speed and found it to be pretty decent. We used the standard benchmark tests and found the drive to achieve a read speed of 251.7 MB/s and write speed of 239.3 MB/s on CrystalDiskMark. Using the HDTunePro, it gained 243.7 MB/s max and 110.6 MB/s min read speeds. Otherwise also we transferred 2 GB of assorted data from PC to drive in just 06 seconds. The round trip, transferring data from drive to PC, took just 03 seconds. This is amongst the best result we’ve ever achieved for such drives during our tests.
