Performance - Read

Read performance is generally more indicative of real (as opposed to cached) performance. So here are the IOzone 3D plots for the Giga, 10/100 LinkStation and TeraStation with a 100 Mbps LAN connection. You can see that there's not much difference in peak read performance. Note that the drops down to zero toward the front left of the plots in Figures 13 and 14 are due to different IOzone settings that omitted testing those file and record size combinations.
