Benchmarks: CrystalDiskMark 3.0
As was the case in the single large file upload (write) and download (read) tests, we find that when measuring sequential read/write performance the DS216+ is limited by the Gigabit network connection.
Here we see that the DS216+ while providing strong results, is noticeably slower than the DS716+ in the random 512K testing. The write (upload) performance is significantly slower and we were surprised by this.
The random 4K-QD32 results are interesting as the DS216+ is significantly slower than the DS716+ when comparing write performance, regardless of configuration. That said the DS216+'s performance is good overall compared to the competition.
