Power & Thermal Performance

We’ve looked at some of the features that QTS 4.2 brings with the TS-231 and TS-451 but how does this affect performance? What are typical transfer rates like over a Gigabit network? Is power consumption reasonable? These are all questions that you might be asking and we’re here to answer them.

Test System Specifications

First of all, for the purpose of real world testing we bundled together 6 files which were in 2 folders amounting to 3.2GB. We wanted to discover the incoming and outgoing transfer times between both NAS and the computer - against other devices on a Gigabit network. Here are the results.

Whilst performing these tests load power consumption was monitored. The power consumption was also monitored whilst being in an idle state. There are actually two states, idle after usage and hibernation which the unit falls into after 10 minutes of non-usage. Hibernation figures were recorded.
