Random Data Transfer By Size
Surprisingly, WSS delivers good random read performance, allowing the W5000 to outperform some systems with more powerful processors and more system memory.

Random writes lag behind, though as you can see, most of the systems deliver erratic performance from their caching algorithms. We are in the process of transitioning testing to full steady state, which will smooth out the graphs.
The W5000 test was identical to the others in today's review. In steady state, however, random write performance drops even further.
Um, is this a hardware review or a press release?
Some users may want to take redundancy to the next level and run RAID 6 on a 5 drive array. That is fine and I know people that do. I don't recommend it on a sub-1000 Dollar system that already has performance issues with RAID 5 though.
Here I am.
"In our own experience, NAS failures come from easy-to-replace fans and power supplies, rather than the main components that make up the heart of the system."
Changed power supply and changed fan but still no fun.
I had to dump my DS411Slim after putting some € on it in an attempt to fix.
The brown thing happens.
