NAS Tests.

So now we can start our tests with the NAS on our test machine.

First we start with copying 1.62GB of pictures from out PC to the NAS, as we can see the average write speed was 6MB/sec, and it took 3minutes 41 seconds to complete.

Also the same procedure was done the other way around, and this time the average speed was 12mb/sec, and it took 2minute 38seconds to complete.

The next test we did is copy some mp3 files (1.36GB total size), writing to the NAS gave an average speed of 8mb/sec, and it finished in 2minutes and 33seconds.

Again we copied the same mp3 files from the NAS to the PC. The average speed was 15MB/sec and it took 1miute and 41 seconds to complete.

The next test we did was to copy an avi file (549mb), this time it took only 54 seconds to write the file to the NAS and the average speed was 11mb/sec.

Again we did the same test from the NAS to the PC, this time average speed was 16mb/sec and it was completed in 28 seconds.

For the last test we did was to copy a full DVD (4.26GB) from our test PC to the NAS, and again the average speed was 10mb/sec and it competed in 7 minutes and 3 seconds.

Doing the same test again, this time coping from the NAS to the PC the average speed was 15MB/sec and it finished in 4minutes and 28 seconds.

Here we have all the results in one graph measured in seconds.

Finishing out tests, we connected the PX-NAS2 to a Thomson TG585 v7 wireless router, and on the other end we had a media player connected wireless to the router. Since our router supports only B/G there was no need to try any file that was above 720p. All out test files were played without any issues.
