TS-209 Pro RAID 1 Performance

Tags: Hardware
The QNAP TS-209 Pro NAS has great specifications, and at large performs very well.

However, I have just tried to use RAID 1 (this is basic disk mirrors) and my-goodness-great-balls-of-fire, that was slow! I took some 10 hours to copy 20 GB!! Over at the forums at QNAP several folks has complained about slow RAID and USB speeds. Remains to be seen whether a clear advice distills out of that discussion.

I went back to the JBOD (just a bunch of disks), and now have the excellent speed back, but of course no mirroring! Guess I'll wait until the next firmware releases arrives.

Other than that, the 209 rocks regarding features and possibilities!
