Performance - more

For my comparisons, I chose to filter the results and limit them to single drive NAS products. Here’s how the family of DS107 products stacked up against the competition:

As expected, the DS107+ outperformed the other DS107 products, but was at a slight disadvantage compared to the Buffalo LinkStation Pro. However, you can see from this chart that both the DS107 and DS107+ do benefit from a gigabit Ethernet connection.

Figure 11 shows a detailed comparison of 1000 Mbps read performance for the three Synology DS107s along with three other competing products, the Buffalo LinkStation Live and Pro and Qnap TS-109 Pro.

In Figure 12, you can see that for file sizes of 128MB and larger, the DS107 and 107+ have very similar performance characteristics.

Turning to write performance, Figure 13 shows the single drive comparison for average 1000 Mbps write performance.

Again, results are as expected, with the DS107+ outperforming its siblings. It also outperformed, on average, the Buffalo LinkStation Pro that had slight bragging rights for read performance.
