High performance access to file storage

An Intel processor and 1GB non-ECC Ram provide some serious grunt for the RNDX400E, as it blasted its way past other Nas devices we’ve tested. Our test PC, Windows 7 running on an Intel QX9450 with 4GB Ram with a virtual Ram drive for transfers, showed the RNDX400E is much faster than many small-business Nas drives.

Power consumption is pretty high with two disks, but spin down saves juice
Shorter bars are better

Netgear claims the default X-Raid 2 volume type is faster for larger sequential reads (i.e. bigger files) than Raid 5 but, with the 1GB files we tested with, Raid 0 and Raid 1 remain king. The big benefit of X-Raid 2 is extra disks can be added to the volume without the need to backup and restore existing data like you do with traditional Raid 5 arrays.
